I've been listening to Bill Wither's "Lovely Day" the last few days, and it struck me just how near perfect a pop song it is. Uplifting lyrics, great interplay between the keyboards and guitar, a wonderfully funky bass line, the sparse strings & horns which fit right where they're needed, even Bill's "let's see how long I can hold this note" backing vocals all work together to make something close to a four minute masterpiece. k.d. lang's "Constant Craving" also comes to mind as being a great piece of pop music art.
What other pop tunes out there come close to being near perfect?
