My American Dream Sounds Like the Jackson 5

There was a great piece on NPR this morning about the song "I Want You Back." In it Harvard History and Literature professor Jack Hamilton says:
 "I consider "I Want You Back" to be the best pop record ever made, by such a wide margin that I can barely entertain a conversation. It's three minutes of shimmering and sustained explosion. I can't remember where and when I first heard it but I've wanted to listen to it forever ever since."

What a treat to hear him say these things as I was getting ready for work this morning. You can hear the whole thing on the NPR website.
