My Squeezebox came up with this today on random play. Starts with a memorable chorus, which has a great chord change and a sly bar of 2/4 thrown in. Add in the socialist theme and it becomes obvious that Eisler was John Lennon forty years early.



Shame about the missing 's'.

It seems that pop is something we remember from when we were children.

So here is something from mine

There have been hundreds of great pop songs over the years, and although I've had a few in mind since I first saw this thread, the answer just came to me: A Day in the Life by The Beatles.

It might not be my favourite song ever never mind my favourite song by The Beatles, but there's a grand and quite unmatched transcendence about it as it's a pop song, sure, but seemingly a pop song written, performed and orchestrated by demi-gods posing as mere mortals. Frankly, I'm amazed the world didn't grind to a halt when A Day in the Life was first broadcast. And frankly, I'm amazed it wasn't on board Voyager when we humans sent an 'LP' into space.
