Barenaked Ladies: “Maybe Katie” (2003)

“Maybe Katie”, from the last really good Barenaked Ladies album (2003’s Everything to Everyone) is one of the most infectious pieces of pop of its decade. The lyric is a little nudge toward romance, directed at someone who’s a little too hard to please. The arrangement is a deft combination of power pop chords, synthesizers and harmonies, underpinned by BNL’s ubiquitous strummed acoustic. Oh, and listen for a subtle bit of accordion around 1:56. These guys crafted their recordings with a lot of sonic detail. It’s just a pop song, but one that gives the ear a lot to do.
