The day that fifteen year old girls realise that they don’t need to turn to crappy radio songs to express how (un)happy they are or how the world doesn’t understand how much they love this boy at school is the day that Best Coast will finally overtake Taylor Swift.
Not only for her sound; which is a sunny mix of the sixties and the nineties, but also for the lyrics. Honestly, how can they not connect to lyrics this straightforward: I wish he was my boyfriend. I'd love him to the very end but instead he's just a friend.
While the world isn’t a perfect place, we can all turn to the new Best Coast video for ‘Boyfriend’ to see pubescent teens falling in love in a Quincereña party (a Latino version of the Sweet Sixteen, except it's celebrated at 15) with Best Coast as the guest band. So sweet!
