IGNORED OBSCURED RESTORED
Today’s SotW is a power pop classic. It is “Johnny Have You Seen Her” by the Rembrandts.
I probably wouldn’t be so embarrassed to admit that I love this song if the duo of Danny Wilde and Phil Solem weren’t best known for performing the theme song to the 90s sitcom Friends, “I’ll Be There For You.”
But please try to put that aside and listen to this as if you could separate them from Friends. (I admit I’m being a music snob.)
“Johnny…” has Beatlesque harmonies (and that ain’t bad) with ringing guitars that conjure up similarities to Squeeze and Crowded House – who at their best also emulate the Beatles.
Don’t take this all too seriously. It’s just “pure pop for now people.”
Enjoy… until next week.
