June 7, 2011

A few days ago the Power Pop blog (Hi, Steve!) posted a song by American band Stag called “Love Her Records”. Steve mentioned that he heard elements of Todd Rundgren (among others) in the song, and one of the commenters, Rushbo (Hi, big R!), specified which Todd Rundgren song: “Couldn’t I Just Tell You”.

This is the similarity that both Steve and Rushbo heard:
