I had never heard of The Pursuit of Happiness until recently, when their song "She's So Young" popped up on my iTunes shuffle. It's the kind of power pop that really grabs me; I'm a sucker for catchy, upbeat 3-chord rock. Turns out they were a Canadian band comprised of college students during the late 1980s. "She's So Young" appeared on their first LP, LOVE JUNK, which was produced by Todd Rundgren. The album was a major smash in Canada, but doesn't appear to have done much in the U.S.
Nothing The Pursuit of Happiness did after LOVE JUNK matched that album's success, but they still managed to keep somewhat of a star presence in their home country. According to Wikipedia, The Pursuit of Happiness were inducted into the Canadian Indies Hall of Fame two years ago.
I've listened to "She's So Young" three times while I've been writing this. Here's the video. I hope you like it.
