June 11 — SHE CAN’T DANCE, Marshall Crenshaw (1982)

imageThere’s a special place in my toe-tapping heart for the subgenre known as “power pop,” that guitar-driven, melodic, sweet bubblegum rock, that peaked in the ’70s. With his debut album in 1982, Marshall Crenshaw carried the torch into the ’80s, drawing comparisons to Buddy Holly. Awakening this morning in a fog, after a Ny-Quill induced sleep, this song and entire album appeared in my head, and stayed all day.
