Okay, I have never cared for those guys -- and, as I implied last week, I sort of deliberately slept through much of the last couple of decades precisely to avoid bands like them and the rest of their commercial contemporaries.
But I'm sorry, that song is actually kind of irresistible.
Hey, soul sister
Ain't that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair, you know
For starters, just in terms of wordplay, that's a pretty smart lyric. Not Cole Porter smart, but by contemporary standards, much better than you would expect. (A Mr. Mister reference? There's something you don't hear everyday).
Plus the whole sentiment is really kinda sweet and funny.
Hey -- so sue me.
BTW, for those of you who have forgotten who Mr. Mister were, here's a reminder you won't thank me for.
