File under bubblegum. Big chewy, everlasting-gobstopper bubblegum, the kind whose flavor never dies. The kind that gets a gooey Michael Stipe to tell some magazine that the Banana Splits meant more to him than The Beatles. Heck, every alterna-rock band with active senses of melody and humor has spent their entire career trying to write one as good as any of the sugary pieces of pink, chewable, perfect pop craft in this brief but ace soundtrack to a nostalgic Demi Moore vehicle. These songs, by bands that are both silly (the Archies and Vanity Fare) and serious (Jackson 5 and Badfinger), are built on crescendoing melodies and chord changes so acrobatic you don't even realize their magnitude--you just remember the hook as long as you live and breathe. Inspirational.
