Regarding the opinion that the song is "ultimately boring and forgettable", I don't feel that way. Ok, I'll admit I've heard one or two rather tedious and forgetable performances of it (true for any song, I guess), but I think the song itself is memorable. In the 'wrong' hands it can come out sounding over twee, but I remember being very struck by the lyrics the first time I heard it.
