    Default The Thread Where We Post Great Pop Songs That Were Hiding In Plain Sight

    A thread for those songs that weren't necessarily huge or iconic (though they may have been "hits" with genuine radio airplay back in the day), that you will still hear in the bank or a supermarket or a Sirius station in your rental car, and go, "goddamn, that's a good pop song."

    I'm always putting The Outfield - Your Love on the jukebox at the local pub. I love hearing everyone sing along.


    This song always gets me dancing. I'm dancing in my chair at work right now.

    I don't think some of you understand what "huge or iconic" means.

    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    fuck yes to Edwyn Collins, and that's a great song.

    does this song fit?

    I love Spacehog and Placebo, and therefore "In the Meantime" and "Pure Morning" qualify for me.

    I love the hell out of this song. It was pretty big in 1995.
