Maybe it's the strings, but there's something about this song that, despite the same nasal vocals and youthful jubilance, sounds a whole lot more mature that everything that has come before it. It's nice that we live in a world that are finally coming to accept that bands like McFly have a purpose and a place in the music industry - to put smiles on people's faces - and this should only go further to secure their recent influx of actually being respected by music fans.
And those who still think McFly are a terrible plague, infecting the ears of our youth and polluting the charts? They're quite simply going to hate that this is really a pretty fine pop song that they'll hear the opening guitar picking of on the radio, and think: "Ooh, I like this, what is it again?" before doubling over in despair when they realise and have to come to terms with the reality of the situation. McFly are really a rather good pop song, and this is probably their finest moment to date.
An upbeat, catchy song about having a broken heart - yes, The Beatles have done it a hundred times, and so have millions of others since, but if it's not broke... This is delightful, fun and the urge to sing along is just so so strong. You might as well just give in.
