Do You Love Me, Denise?

A guy I know holds high expectations for girls he’s looking to court. Yea, like you, so do I; we keep them to a minimal though to better our chances, right? Mr. Prerequisite has an explicit list of criteria his Mrs. Prereq has to meet. If she isn’t able and willing to enact natural child birth, he’s already moved on. On a subconscious level, I play the same system when looking to spend time with music for the rest of my life. Would lyrical content fall on that list of requirements:

I heard she used to be married 
She listens to puff daddy 
She works at liberty travel 
She got a heart made of gravel

Deep it is not. But for power pop numbers, especially ones with playful harmonies, shalalas, fuzz, handclaps, and distorted vocals, lyrics only accentuate the formula Fountains of Wayne exhibit so well on “Denise” — a perfectly timed out number, one where I discovered after endless repeats and table smacking that it does hold lyrical relevance: Denise has a certain charm and her aura has permeated all aspects of this poet’s life.

And, oh, it must be summer!
