What Happened To Power Pop # 7

Let's continue this small series with a song which is called by many for this genre typical. Cheap Trick were formed in 1973 and became famous as a support band for acts like Queen, Kiss and Santana. Their first album was not particularly successful in her native country - but they got big in Japan. During their tour through Japan they recorded their first live record and their single went straight to the top 10 worldwide. Many other bands covered I want you to want me but the original was never achieved. Curt Cobain once said about Nirvana: „We sound just like Cheap Trick only the guitars are louder.“  No more words to add.

Cheap Trick - I want you to want me

The Swede hat gesagt…

The first five Cheap Trick albums are all worth checking out - and the next two weren't too shabby either.
