Others a little straight forward like this one, the charm, sincere, the spirit, the determination, and language that if you repeated in front of your mum, your mouth would be full of soap!This may not be our favourite music but the tunes are infectious, we do love coming of age stories too. This one is unorthodox in many ways!
