You Try It

Ann [Sterzinger],

In response to your review of the Horrorpops [The Treatment, October 7]--and I would first say of course that I am a fan--but to say they have "dirt-stupid lyrics" is rather unfair. Example: on the song "Hit 'n Run" I really like the lyric "I've gotten the 'Wouldn't you rather be friends'--I guess that could make sense if we hadn't kissed; if you hadn't made me feel like I could never be missed." Actually, I could hear Chrissie Hynde doing this, and it even sounds like a Pretenders song. And I always try to remember these folks are writing in their second language--have you ever written a review in Danish?

Respectfully,

Lincoln Zimmanck
