The perfect pop song

It would be a better world, I think, if we still had Shindig! and Hullabaloo on television.

I know it would be a better world if the great Jackie DeShannon (née Sharon Lee Myers) still were crankin' out the big radio hits like she was, say, in 1965 -- the year she made this appearance on NBC's Hullabaloo.

"When You Walk in the Room," if you ask me, belongs in the rarified ranks of songs that merit consideration as The Perfect Pop Song. Listen for yourself.
