Power Pop Girls: 1977-1984

[EDIT]August 21, 2011. I received a warning from DMCA for something on this post. Not sure if it was a song or the image I used, so I've just deleted both the cover art and the mediafire link. Apologies to my new readers, as this is one of my favorite comps[/EDIT]

Once again the tragic events of the last few days drastically overshadow any compilation that I might post here. I, like many of you, am deeply concerned with the ongoing tragedy in Japan. My heart hurts. As insignificant as this latest installment of Power Pop is, I thought it best to post it as I normally would have. Hopefully, some of the tunes on here might put a smile on your face.

Today's compilation overlaps the Birth of Power Pop series and Power Pop Explosion! It even jumps just ahead to the next, as yet unnamed Power Pop series, as it contains a couple of tracks from 1984.
