    I enjoyed your latest installment on perfect pop songs. As I was listening to the episode, these three perfect songs “popped” into my head, so I had to share:
    Jewellers’ Heart – The Bats
    Girl on the Wing – The Shins
    She Goes Out with Everybody – The Spongetones

    Also, after perusing Jim’s list, I’ll see his “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5 and raise it with “I Want You Back” by the Hoodoo Gurus!
