For My Sunday Song #52, I have gone with the peppy little jaunt called “Do You Love Me” by the band Guster. The song is from the 2010 album called ‘Easy Wonderful’ which was their sixth studio album. The song is their biggest hit which reached #9 on the Adult Album Alternative chart. They have not had a Hot 100 hit.
For those out there that don’t know Guster, they are an American alternative rock band. They are also labeled as a Jangle Pop band. Jangle pop is defined as follows (per wikipedia)…
Jangle pop is a subgenre of pop rock that emphasizes trebly, ringing guitars (usually twelve-string electrics) and pop melodies reminiscent of those from the 1960s.
That definition would describe this song. What I love about the song is twofold. First, the music and melodies of the song are so catchy, poppy and just plain fun. You can’t help but feel good when you hear the song. It is very infectious.
