Tally Ho'

It's amazing what a well-crafted melody and harmony can do for your mood and today Tally Hall is starting me off on cloud 9. Through all the layers this is just classic pop, melody-driven to the core. It calls to mind a few groups I'm a huge fan of, namely Margot and the Nuclear So-and-Sos with a few different twists. "Be Born" has a plucky banjo-laden country feel, "The Whole World and You" is a circus soundtrack, while "Good Day" won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and has a ridiculous arrangement full of oooh, ahhhs and other whimsical nonsense.
