Catchy song but that's about it.

catchy song
*****
A complete guilty pleasure for me, there's no other way to describe it. It's a pretty bad track on just about every level, and yet it works so well.
****
Cool and catchy track, impossible not to really get into it when it starts playing.
****
This really is a great and unique odd sounding quirky track aided in part by the strong Scottish accent. Also has the distinction of having had more success overseas than here in the UK, their homeland. UK#11 and Ireland#14. US#3.

Sorry, annoying for me.
*****
Never gets annoying for me.
****
This song does take ahold of you, but I'm always going to remember it for being on those Retravision ads!

EDIT: Not sure what universe I was in when I gave this a 5* (probably was watching a lot of How I Met Your Mother at the time), but this is worthy of a 4* at best. 5* -> 4*.

One of those song you hate so much that you enjoy it.

Just average for me. Have heard it way too many times in my lifetime that I'm just sick of it.

A good song that is quite catchy and singable, however it does get a little irritating after a while though.
****
4 stars
****
It has a catchy rhythm. But it can get mildly annoying.
Keeping 'Teardrops' and 'Tucker's Daughter' from #1 in Australia was more annoying.
****
It's good, but I've heard it so many times in my life it borders on novelty.
******
Deserves seven stars
****
Good track that was used on an episode of
HIMYM helping the score even more.

You know y'all love it. :P

Fantastisch lekker en aanstekelijk nummer. Vreemd dat er nooit een hitnotering voor gekomen is... in de loop der tijd voor veel Schotten een lijflied geworden. Ook leuk: de live versie van Imagine Dragons.
