Sugar

"If I Cant Change Your Mind"

(1992)
.
.

Genre:Indie Rock

Indie Rock sing 60s style music, no its not a new thing to do but it was in 1992 especially with about to conquer Everest is brave.

The song "If I Cant Change Your Mind" is very nice and would make a good intro for a TV show like a "Friends" style show.

"Experts" say "Other highlights include the '60s-style "If I Can't Change Your Mind," the loud, beautiful guitars of "Man on the Moon" and "Helpless," and the tongue-in-cheek Pixies tribute "A Good Idea"
Copper Blue was the debut album of the US alternative rock band Sugar. It was voted 1992 Album of the Year by the NME. All of the songs were written by guitarist/vocalist Bob Mould, who also co-produced with Lou Giordano. The song "The Slim" is about losing someone to AIDS. Musically, the band continues the thick punk guitar of Mould's other band, Husker Du, while slowing the tempo and emphasizing melody even more.
A limited edition initial run of the CD was released by Rykodisc in a front-and-back metal copper sleeve with each of the 2,500 copies containing a one-of-a-kind Polaroid photo taken by one of the three band members and stamped on the back with "Sugar Copper Blue Summer '92."
Several tracks were recorded for this album, but were not included. Mould decided to release them separately as an EP entitled Beaster.
In 2006, the band Train featured a cover of "If I Can't Change Your Mind" on its For Me, It's You album. ~ [Source:Wikipedia]
