1. Ed Ward: “The English have a word, twee, which is hard to define, but once  you’ve been exposed to it, you know it when you hear it. The music of  Mary Hopkin, a Welsh singer who entranced Paul McCartney from her  televised appearance on a talent-search show, became Apple’s first  release. Her single, “Those Were the Days,” hasn’t improved with age,  and her album Postcard includes the tracks “The Puppy Song,” as  well as Donovan’s “Happiness Runs” and a cover of “There’s No Business  Like Show Business.”
I confess, I was unable to finish listening to it, or to her second album, having overdosed on twee.” View in High-Res
