    SOMEbody mentioned REO Speedwagon and although they are eminently mockable I have a soft spot for this song (stupid girls and their dumb mixtapes **pulls ponytail; runs**) so I queued it up… and am suddenly dumbfounded at how much the young Connells owed to this song. How did I miss this influence before?!
