What I’m Jamming To: June 19, 2011

The Records weren’t in the public eye for particularly long but they left quite an impression in the power pop world with just one song. “Starry Eyes” has become required listening for any music aficionado or aspiring power pop musician. Though the band was from the U.K., “Starry Eyes” failed to chart there but did reach number 56 in October 1979 in the U.S. Supporting their U.S. self-titled album, the Records’ album reached 41 on the U.S. Billboard charts.

If you liked this jam, you may like the following similar jams I’ve been jamming to:

“Another Girl, Another Planet” – The Only Ones

“Girlfriend” – Matthew Sweet

“So It Goes” – Nick Lowe

“Welcome to the Working Week” – Elvis Costello

“Who Listens to the Radio” – The Sports
