It's New!
It’s New!

Yes, that noise you heard was the lot of our playlist rotation genies adding 81 tracks from 12 super pop artists to the Pure Pop Radio playlist. Pat them on the back for a job very well done! Here’s the rundown:

* Various Artists – It Was 50 Years Ago Today: A Tribute to the Beatles, Vol. 3. Another installment of Bullseye Records’ great series paying tribute to the one and only Fab Four means more tracks for the Pure Pop Radio playlist. This time around, we’re glad to be able to add the following: Anger Brothers – “And Your Bird Can Sing,” Bentwood Rocker – “It Won’t be Long,” The Spongetones – “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite,” Terry Draper – “Til there Was You,” The Oohs – “You’re Gonna Lose that Girl,” Wendie Colter and Rob Laufer – “Here Comes the Sun,” and Yeah Yeah Yeah – “There’s a Place.”

* Mike Dees. We’ve chosen two songs from Mike’s Something Like Glitter album to add to the playlist: “AM Radio” and “Something Like Glitter.” Cool stuff.

* Matt Kabus. We added some songs from Matt the last time around. Now, we’ve added four more from this most talented singer-songwriter: “Roller Coaster,” “Crossroads,” “Fly Away,” and “Picture Frame” (from Matt Kabus EP #1).

We’ve also beefed up our stock of songs from the 1960’s and 1970’s, with a host of tunes from The Association, Harpers Bizarre and The Monkees. Here are the particulars:

* The Association. “Look at Me, Look at You,” “What Were the Words,” “Under Branches,” “Six Man Band,” and “Dubuque Blues” (from The Association); “Come On In,” “Everything that Touches You,” “Time for Livin’,” “Hear in Here,” and “Birthday Morning” (from Birthday); “Enter the Young,” “Don’t Blame It on Me,” “I’ll be Your Man,” “Along Comes Mary,” “Cherish,” and “Better Times” (from and then…along comes The Association); “No Fair at All” and “You Hear Me Call Your Name” (from Renaissance); “Wasn’t it a Bit Like Now (Parallel ’23),” “When Love Comes to Me,” “Windy,” “Wantin’ ain’t Gettin'” (from Insight Out); “Bring Yourself Home,” “P.F. Sloan,” “Travelers Guide (Spanish Flyer),” and “Seven Virgins” (from Stop Your Motor); “Names, Tags, Number and Labels,” “One Sunday Morning,” and “Dreamer” (from Just the Right Sounds – The Association Anthology); “Darling Be Home Soon,” “Indian Wells Woman,” and “Little Road and a Stone to Roll” (from Waterbeds in Trinidad).

* Harpers Bizarre. This much-loved ’60’s groups’ soft, melodic sounds get much love from Pure Pop Radio. We’ve added some of Harpers’ greatest hits and album tracks: “Come to the Sunshine,” and “59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” (from Feelin’ Groovy). Also, from the Now Sounds reissue of this album, three songs by the group from which Harpers Bizarre grew, The Tikis: “Pay Attention to Me,” “If I’ve Been Dreaming,” and “I’ll Never Forget About You.” Plus: “Anything Goes,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Hey, You in the Crowd,” “Louisiana Man,” “You Need a Change,” “High Coin,” and “Malibu U” (from Anything Goes); “Soft Soundin’ Music,” “Witchi Tai To,” “When the Band Begins to Play,” “Blackbird,” “All Through the Night,” and “Poly High” (from 4); “Mad,” “Both Sides Now,” and “The Drifter” (from The Secret Life of Harpers Bizarre).

* The Monkees. It’s pre-Fab Four time! We’ve added a whole host of numbers from Mike, Micky, Peter and Davy, including: “She,” “When Love Comes Knockin’ (At Your Door),” “Mary, Mary,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow),” and “I’m a Believer” (from More of the Monkees); “(Theme From) The Monkees,” “Saturday’s Child,” “Take a Giant Step,” and “Last Train to Clarksville” (from The Monkees); “Salesman,” “She Hangs Out,” “Cuddly Toy,” “What am I Doing Hangin’ ‘Round?,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday” (from Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.); “You Told Me,” “I’ll Spend My Life with You,” “Forget that Girl,” “For Pete’s Sake,” “Sunny Girlfriend,” “No Time,” “Randy Scouse Git” (from Headquarters); “Listen to the Band” (from The Monkees Present).
