The guitar effects in the Wonders songs sound like the synth effects in the Fountains song. The backing vocals harmonization. and their usage are similar. Nobody did backing vocals like that when Stacy's Mom came out. The vocal reverb is similar. It sounds like the Wonders song was recorded on old equipment (or, old effects, it was filmed in 1999), which gives it that vintage vibe.

It was a great movie.
The other lead singer in our band weighed in when I asked him what similarities he saw between the two songs. His answers was quite similar to mine.

"No i dont...i think youre hearing the harmonies on the choruses and thinking theyre close but actually the Wonders is more 60s like and the Fountains are like the Cars harmonies if you listen closely. The melodys are not at all alike, i mean notation wise."

Can I steam my face mask occasionally instead of washing it?
Ans.: Not really. Only steam things for which washing is not an option.

105 years ago today the Lusitania was sunk. Here is actual film footage showing passengers arriving and the ship ailing on May 1, 1915 from New York.

It's been going around how celebrities use strange public names like this for their kids for media/paparazzi purposes. The idea being that the child's real name is something much more traditional and kept private.

I wouldn't be surprised if that was what was going on here.
