When I first heard this song on the radio, I thought it was sung by girls. Then I saw a picture of the band, and I still thought they were girls. Then, eventually, this band became the reason that I wanted a CD player. I think I was in fourth grade, and since I didn’t have a CD player, I would listen to the top ten count down every single night so that I could hear their songs. Sometimes I would record the radio on to a cassette tape so I could listen to it later. Finally, for my birthday I got a CD player and their CD. So happy.
Wanna know a secret? I don’t think I ever really knew what the lyrics to this song were. And I still can’t understand them without looking them up. But that didn’t stop me from LOVING this song and deciding that I was going to marry Zac (my best friend had dibs on Taylor).
My love for Hanson didn’t continue much past elementary school, and in fact I threw away their CD when I cleaned out all my stuff before going to college. However, thanks to Chilena en Nueva York I listened to some of their newer songs, and you know what? They aren’t bad.
PS. Happy Halloween! And if you are in Chile, I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend.
