Jon McLaughlin - You Can Never Go Back

Pop singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin, not to be confused with jazz guitarist John McLaughlin, was totally unknown to me until this afternoon when a friend of mine asked me to check out his song "You Can Never Go Back". And boy do I like it! An Electric Light Orchestra-inspired song that evens namechecks Kublai Khan's summer capital Xanadu just like ELO did with Olivia Newton-John in 1980, and sports a fabulous power poppish guitar solo that puts me in mind of New Radicals' awesome "You Get What You Give". The song is lifted off McLaughlin's second album, 2008's OK Now. Love it!
