Starry Eyes by The Records

While you were off in France
We were stranded in the British Isles

There is a special place in my heart for 70s power pop. It was a movement where people were inspired by The Beatles, Big Star, and The Kinks with the end result being some finely crafted rock tunes. One of my favorites is 'Starry Eyes' by The Records. Released in 1978, 'Starry Eyes' is the measuring stick of success for power pop songs. I had the opportunity to see John Wicks, the lead singer of The Records, in the late 90s and he opened for Guided By Voices in Cleveland. He really rocked the house that night and he killed it on 'Starry Eyes'. Enjoy!
