You know, I made it sound worse than it was. But, yes, it was getting close
to being annoying.

It was actually kind of refreshing to find someone so excited about the
early singles. I think she'd name Substitute, I Can't Explain and Magic Bus
as the highlights. Most people I know see those oldies as kind of pleasant
interludes between the anthems. Anyway, I countered her eye-rolling by
singing the chorus of YBYB *very* loudly right in her face. That got her to
have fun with it.

Exactly what I'm saying. Those kind of comparisons mean nothing to me.
They're unrealistic. But, many keep making them.
