    The obvious choice, but for a five minutes or less (I think) pop single, there really isn’t a single thing wrong with

    Good Vibrations – The Beach Boys

    I think most of what were Abba’s best songs, were what could be described as almost “perfect pop”.

    No perfect song should be more than 1 minute 40 seconds.

    Daydream Believer.

    Van Morrison’s Stoned Me.

    No perfect song should be more than 1 minute 40 seconds.

    Sometimes you need to allow a bit extra for the intro though…

    You need to nominate some criteria, people are just listing their favorite songs. Which is interesting anyway ! (ps Dire Straits ? really ? Do you play that in front of other people ??)

    mmm mmm mmm mmm – very good choice. Very sad story tho 🙁 [man hugs]
