Fronted by husband-and-wife duo Clare and Olivier Manchon and guided by Beatles-esque pop, Clare and the Reasons couldn't be any more charming if they were talking cartoon bunnies. That's not to say that they overwork the cuteness factor. For instance, this track balances Clare Manchon's girly vocal style and the prance of an electric piano with lovelorn lyrics and a minor key descending guitar line straight out of the Lennon-McCartney playbook. This musical couple may be cute as a button, but they're also clever as a fox.
