While perusing the cd site: www.notlame.com, this cd title caught my eye: Beat Party!! Worldwide Pop Punk Compilation. Well, pop punk is my favorite category of music so I had to have it. It contains pop punk songs from groups all over the world. Countries represented are Spain, Japan, Australia, the US, Canada and Norway. I'm still working my way through it, but its got lots of guitars and melody. Here's one of my early favorites:
Roller Coaster - Do You Remember (Australia)
Whew! I figured out what song it reminds me of: Teenorama by the Records a 1980 new wave "hit". Anyone else hear a similarity?
