Song of the Day TBT 11/15/18 Fountains of Wayne – Stacy’s Mom

I have always loved the pure power pop of NJ’s Fountains of Wayne.  This was their only big radio hit, but they have so many great songs.  For those who don’t know, their name comes from an outdoor lawn fountain store in Wayne, NJ – I believe it was even featured one time on a episode of The Sopranos.  Hilarious video featuring Rachel Hunter as well.
