A good power pop song doesn’t need to be talked about. It needs to be rocked. As much as I love power pop as a genre, I often find it difficult to write about. It isn’t something that really needs explanation. There will be guitars, and drums, and maybe a solo or two. It will be about girls, or rock and roll, or girls and rock and roll. I’m not even sure I could tell you what makes one power pop song better than the next, except that I know it when I hear it. All this brings me to this fantastic piece of power pop: “Broke” by the Buffalo band Johnny Nobody. Don’t think about it. Rock it.
