I couldn't bear to listen to it now but I have a copy of the single so I must have liked something about it then.

It's the kind of thing that I probably normally dislike but it works here. It's a great record. The wee guitar hook after the chorus is a brilliant touch, the "something tells me..." section and so on.

I like it! Her voice and the general style of the song also reminds me of Sleater-Kinney, so that works for me.

Yeah, if we're going to have pop music, lets have it catchy and quirky, rather than boring and worthy. Unfortunately, it lasts for over double it's necessary length, the instrumental break with little in the way of instruments is pointless.

But yeah, hitty.

It's not shit. I hear it similarly to how D-Fish does. It happens.
