I gotta say I’m a bit baffled by the intensity of the hatred towards “Brand New Key.” Like, I can see disliking it, but I’m wondering what it is about it that inspires such vitriol. Too twee, perhaps? Maybe it’s something I would have had to live through in order to understand—in which case, what would be the song’s contemporary equivalent? We’re surely not talking Meghan Trainor level here?

To twee, perhaps??!?!

“Perhaps” as in, is it’s twee was the reason for all the hatred?

I somehow forgot to mention "Coconut" here. Proceed apace.
