If someone were to ask me what is the greatest song in pop music, taking into account every possible element (musicianship, songwriting, lyrics, production and harmonies) I would immediately answer Golden Blunders by The Posies from the CD Dear 23 which also contained Suddenly Mary above. I've always thought that it sounded like something that Brian Wilson whould have written if he had ever grown up. The video below is pretty weak, but definitely go download the song on iTunes (or wherever you hijack your music). Grab Suddenly Mary too.
