For Adam Schlesinger, RIP

Just heard the devastating news that Adam Schlesinger, co-founder of Fountains of Wayne, one of my favorite power pop bands, has died of COVID19 complications.  While Stacy’s Mom was their biggest hit, this was my favorite song of theirs.  Their brilliant combination of huge power pop riffs and witty lyrics will be sorely missed.  Sending my thoughts to his family, friends and fans worldwide.

How many more will we lose?

 

HT to Aphoristical for the heads up.

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.
