After all, the guitars here are lively and primed for maximum endorphine release, and Mitchell's lyrics draw an almost thoughtful parallel between the general concept of a "thirst for love" and all the reasons the Coca-Cola company might think of to peddle its carbonated, syrup-based beverages. This is a general universe, remember, where the phrase "nobody hurts and nobody cries" fits perfectly into a desire to oversell the potential of a so-called thirst-quencher to create a veritable paradise for all humankind. This song boasts also a powerhouse chorus perfect for the last day of school and pretty much any summer day thereafter - set aside for relatively innocent teenage shenanigans. That's a nice way of saying there's certainly nothing dangerous about this music, but that certainly doesn't mean fun cannot and should not be had by all.
