    Dolly Parton – We Used To (1978)

Words can’t really describe how similar these two songs are. Clearly Avril (or rather, her production company) just decided to throw caution to the wind with this one, barely even changing the title of the song. Have a listen, and wait for the teeny-pop chorus.

The Rubinoos – I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend (1979)
