Skinny Tie Heaven! The RBP Power Pop Top 100, Part Two (100-51)

William Higham, Rock's Backpages, August 2001

Chiming and choogling, winsomely pretty and archly melodic, freshfaced and faux-naif... yep, it's that formidable sub-genre POWER POP, a blissful marriage of melody and energy that began with Buddy Holly, blossomed through Beatlemania, and continues to thrive in the new pop millennium.

RBP's William Higham nominates a ton of PP classix for your singalong pleasure.
