What's so creepy?

I don't think it's "creepy", unless I'm missing something obvious in the hard-to-hear lyrics. It's just a silly song -with a somewhat catchy melody- about someone's apparent affection for her. Other than the title, does it even mention her by name?

Note: This song is mentioned on in the "Veronica Belmont Audio and Podcasts" section, so I can't imagine she/they are too put off by it to list it there. The band's single is posted as an ad on her Mahalo bio page, too.

This type of song reminds me of a much tamer version of Def Leppard's "Photograph", ostensibly an homage to the late Marilyn Monroe.

Here's a youtube link of the Carps' tune that seems to have a better mix (vocals stronger in the mix than drums):

Personally, unless I'm not hearing some really crude lyrics buried in the mix, I'd say she's probably flattered.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
