Jangly songs?

The term has been used so much lately, so it begs the question: What songs do you consider "jangly"?

I'll start:

This Charming Man - Smiths
State of Art - Friends Again
Losing My Religion - REM

Go!

I consider a lot of Matthew Sweet's material to be "jangly". Here is a sample:



Here's another jangly one:

Anything Byrds-esque, Smiths, some of the Stone Roses songs. A lot of George Harrison's work between 64-66 (obviously a few examples elsewhere).

Generally I find the magic ingredient to be either a 12 string (or a heavily layered 6 strings guitar like This Charming Man) or and AC30's topboost channel. Even some of Foo Fighter's sounds are viewable as 'jangly tones'

Tom Petty--American Girl



And too many Beatles tracks to mention. Here's a favorite--George Harrison's first really good song, and his nod to the Byrds.

Man, I love this song. Aside from being jangly, it has a great bass sound. One of my favorite bass tracks.

Big + on Let's Active and the genius of Mitch Easter!!! Criminally overlooked! Hooks at every turn and the jangle is only one part of the rich layers.
