Bill Lloyd- This Is Where I Belong
This is where the MP3 used to be.
No disrespect is intended to Big Star, the dbs, the Beatles or to the author of this song, Ray Davies of the Kinks, when I name Set To Pop as my favorite power pop album. It's loaded with anthemic brilliance, including these two minutes of sugary goodness. While his partner in the excellent late-'80s act Foster and Lloyd, Radney, continues to make intelligent country music, Lloyd is an unabashed power pop geek. Even though it's out of print, Set To Pop enjoys an active life as a cult classic.
