Hey, this is great! Great guitar work, particularly on those cascading triads after the first chorus, really wonderful.

It's like a mentos commercial, theme from "my two dads" and power pop awesomeness rolled up in a bit of social commentary.

Not trying to be flip, I really really dig this!

Thanks for the positive/insightful/constructive comments! Cool to know someone is picking up what I'm trying to put down. I am currently trying to crank out a bunch of guitar pop in the Guided By Voices vein of short/sweet... so Mentos Commercial is totally the vibe. Cheers

Wish it were a full length track, love that synth at 1:05, in addition to all around awesomeness. More of this!

That solo that carries the song to the end is sweet. Very 1980's.

I don't say this lightly, it is a high compliment: This is totally head-boppin'. Love the arrangement, the sheer ebullience inherent in the songwriting and performance, the retro synth and guitar tone. Bouncy.
