Sugar: "If I Can't Change Your Mind"

I recently mentioned the outstanding album Copper Blue from the band Sugar, fronted by Bob Mould. Here's a rarely-seen video from that album, for the song "If I Can't Change Your Mind."

Though the subject matter is kind of depressing if you think about it (a hopelessly loyal lover gets dumped due to false accusations of infidelity), the upbeat music makes this one of the very few songs in the world that will instantly make me happy every single time I hear it. And I've heard it hundreds of times. (The Lemonheads' "Into Your Arms" has the same effect on me; so does The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again," or Boston's "More Than a Feeling.") Hope you like it, too.
