First Hit #1: March 5, 1977
Evergreen is fine. It’s a love song that’s a bit silly and cutesy, but otherwise not something that should be regarded as particularly controversial. Streisand is an okay singer, she’s singing lyrics that are frequently dumb, but otherwise similarly okay. Everything about it is merely okay, it’s a song that hits some expected beats and does its job as a love theme. I’m not sure I’d call it particularly good – in fact, I know I would not call it particularly good – but it’s also not bad, a slice of music that became a hit because it’s tied to a popular movie, which I haven’t seen and thus cannot really tie a value judgement to it. It’s fine, a big slab of okay.
