Interesting.

I could name 500 songs worse than this one.

I can see how it could get somewhat annoying after several listens but it's still a simple, heartfelt, really pretty love song. I believe it was the most downloaded song on itunes for a couple of weeks this month. Why only now? The album came out in 2005 it seems.
is there anything you don't like

oh and for the record, i didn't like any of the music off garden state either. the movie was good, but the music?

i've never even heard this song actually but just reading the descriptions tells me i won't. plus, if it's overplayed then it's all over. why does radio feel the need to play a song they've fallen in love with (basically, the record label has paid top dollah) every 15 minutes? no one can possibly like a song that much. even when i'm obsessed with a song, i don't play it that often every day for months! geez. it's exactly why i don't listen to fm radio anymore.

unico, I was only addressing the people that were praising the Rhianna song. Sorry if it seemed like I was addressing every single post.

This is exactly what I was talking about earlier. Without even listening to the song, how can you make a decision? Plus if radio overplays the heck out of it, is that the song or singer's fault? There are a number of songs I'm bored with because of radio overplay. But I won't say I hate those songs just cos of that!

The funny thing is all I said was I kinda like this song and geez! what a scene everyone's creating! I guess "popular on the radio" automatically = BAD

And frankly, I'm already in the "getting annoyed" stage that Dusty was talking about. That chorus does get a bit grating after a few listens.

The thing that gets me about this song is that they play it on the supposedly non-pop alternative rock station. I just can't avoid it!

Zootles is one of the most open-minded non-snobs on this board. This is good.

That's the thing, evvvvvvery radio station feels like they can play it. Even oldies stations. You really can't avoid it. My dear friend Ethel on XM radio has been overtaken by this song, and that makes me sad.

The fact that it's a song that grates on you after repeated listening is what makes it widely hated, not because its "popular and on the radio." Chasing Cars was all over the radio yet I still like that song.

Sorry Zootles, but I detested this song the first time that I heard it, and radio certainly has done nothing to mitigate those feelings. It just strikes me as the latest in a string of acoustic ballads that are little more than pastiches of "Yesterday."

oh, i wasn't saying i hate it or anything, i was just saying based on the descriptions in this thread i doubted i'd like it.

and plus, if it's worse than chasing cars like atomicbono said, then yeah, i'm sure i'd hate it

but ultimately i've never listened to it and probably never will (ooh look at me i'm so indie and trendy i don't listen to the radio) so i don't know. maybe i'll listen to the free preview on itunes or something.

In Zoots' defense, I saw Plain White T's and The Academy Is...at The Warehouse, a local venue, 500 ish people, 2 years ago. The band is very good live, and Hey There Delilah is beautiful live as well. I have no idea why in the hell it's getting played now...but so goes radio. I don't listen to the radio, so I don't know exactly how overplayed it is...but I'm assuming it's a lot. The song is good, in small doses. And, I do like it better than Chasing Cars
