Is there a more perfect pop song?

The Ronettes - Be My Baby

Nope!
My soon-to-be wife walked down the aisle to this.
Great song, perfectly captures the thrill of romance.

Thanks for posting this on what will undoubtedly be a shite-y day at work.

Nope.

I will tell a story I've told before - I went to a colleagues funeral, and her son said this was the record he and his mum had danced to a few months before she died, when she knew she was at the end, and then they played it at the funeral and it was, indeed, just perfect.

There is not.

It'd be wrong to argue with that.

JC said...

Such a fine body of men have already spoken and I'd be daft to argue with them.

But wouldn't it be great to get an old-fashioned arguement going....not on the internet but down the pub.....just what are the ten most perfect pop songs????

Rocky Sharpe & The Replays, Jimmy The Hoover, Modern Romance, Berni Flint?

Only jokin' - it's The Ronettes really.

My only fault with this is that the drums don't sound as huge as they do in my head. So many of the people who have been influenced by this have made the drums sound MASSIVE.

It's easy to forget this song, just because I know it so well. I don't actually put it on very often.

No. For me, this is where my love for music begins.

I prefer the remix.
