"I wish there were half stars, but this is closer to 4 than to 3 for me.
I'm older than the average demographic for this band, if I went to their concert I'd have to wear a "Delilah's Mom" t-shirt :) but Hey There Delilah has been playing on my radio station and the song just sticks in my head.
It is the song that every girl wishes someone would right for her. Unusual these days to hear something sweet about commitment, it's a beautiful sound with a beautiful message.
I bought the EP along with the All That We Need album. It's all young catchy pop (but not bubble-gum pop) stuff, airplay sort of stuff. It is not an acoustic band. Very enjoyable for a 46 yo mom and my 19 yo son doesn't mind me playing it in the car. He just doesn't appreciate me singing along...
BTW, I like it that the rest of the band is in the Delilah video. That shows class."

"I bought this because I saw the Hey There Delilah video on MTV 2. This cd is great, and I listened to the title track about 10 times."

"I purchased the cd "Hey There Delilah" by The Plain White Ts. It was shipped to me quickly. The transaction was flawless. When I went to play the CD, I found that some of the words were bleeped out. I think this is a great thing when purchasing music that will be played around children. I have no young children and am not happy with the fact that my cd sounds like it is skipping because words are bleeped out. I would not have purchased this cd if I knew it would be like that. Thank You

"While not every song this band produces is outstanding, some of it is, and Hey There Delilah is one of them. Lots of whining about this song by the "too-cool-for-the-room" types out there who hate anything evocative (the oft-overused EMO tag, which means nothing now and never really has), mostly because the only emotions they know are anger and cynicism. This song is as real as any other good ballad - if it had been written by Paul Simon or Elliot Smith there would be no negative reviews. It either means something to you or it doesn't. Ultimately, whether music is good or not is up to the listener, so attempts to pull the song apart critically just lead to the usual boring chain reaction event that blasts any ballad ever written, no matter how good or bad. Such a drag."
This is a great song!

"Hey There Delilah is a great song. That is probably why it's popular. duh.
All thses people saying it's for the easily manipulated Or they instantly dislike people who like this song.
My god where did you loose your soul. I can see you pouting there like your sucking on some lemon.
This is one of the nicest songs I've heard in ages. Liked by nice people. "
