Two Princes - Spin Doctors

This is one of the catchiest tunes I have ever heard. Even elements that I might normally dislike seem to work well in this arrangement.

Santa Monica - Everclear

Everclear sounds like Tom Petty when Tom Petty was cool, along with a nineties background of soaring feedback and crunching chords.

Banditos - The Refreshments

Just a fun little rocker that reminds me vaguely of The Kinks. Another song where various elements really work well together.

Out Of My Head - Fastball

The relaxed groove and electric organ make this sound reminiscent of Steely Dan's "Dirty Work" from 25 years earlier. Great soft rocker.

All the Small Things - Blink-182

Punk meets pop, much as it did 20 years earlier for Cheap Trick. Why haven't I heard this played more than the incessantly stupid "Lump?"*
