Suggest to me some good pop music!

Not really rock but more pop. I've said on another thread, how I've been listening to The Concretes and the new U2 - Window in the Skies and they've sort of whet my appetite for similar ideas and sounds. Nothing from too far in the past please. Anybody have any suggestions? I've also been listening to Imogen Heap's recent album...

Teenage freakin' Fanclub. 'Neil Jung' to start. That song is perfect in every way.

SHINS.

Or you could always give the good ol' Blue Album a spin. It has been so lonely lately.

No, the poster asked for pop music, not crap music.

Seconding the suggestion of Teenage Fanclub for some good, smart pop. Along those same lines, I'd also recommend Matthew Sweet and the Pernice Brothers.

Annie's "Anniemal" is super good too, but definitely more along the lines of "smart, well-done dancey pop."

Another correct answer.

Power pop is the best pop.
