    Post some of your favorite classic rock n roll pop songs - 3 minute or less upbeat blasts of boy/girl, summer, cars, school, hanging out, whatever. The kind that make you make feel young, want to sing along, and move your body in some way.

    The ones that inspired this thread, heard while riding in my truck.

    Paris, north down Montmartre hill
    Beatles or Beach Boys.

    My definition: less than 3 minutes, timeless melody and magic interactions occurring between the musicians, the arrangements and the studio gear.

    Then others did it too.
