Name something you don't like about a good song.
« on: June 26, 2015, 10:04:50 AM »
Thought of this when I woke up, what is something you don't like about an otherwise great song?

The fuzzy snare in the top register in Moment of Surrender leaps to mind as my top annoyance.  Also can't stand the honkey-tonk piano in Breathe or the way the guitar is soft/deemphasized instead of raw/loud in Discotheque.

What is LAPOE?

The 'you are Rock n roll' part and the horrible edge guitar part that accompanies it in Volcano, really spoils the vibe of the song.

They had a nice post punk vibe going and spoil it with that clunky part which reminds me of the kind of square old man rock of stand up comedy and love and peace

The "troops of the ground are about to begin" section?  Hm.  I like that.

I love that part! Is it the lyric itself or just the delivery?

I struggled with this but you are right on this one but still a really good song.  It doesn't spoil it for me but kinda what the hell moment.

It reminds me of "let me in the sound!" from Boots.  But not as good.  When that comes up I must stop what I am doing and air-thrash the tomtoms.  When "you are rock and roll" comes on I sing along but agree it's a bit of a let down from the rest of the song's energy.

Kite is a favorite of mine.  Amazing song.  But I absolutely hate the ending lyrics, they just do not belong in the song.  Drives me crazy.

The last of the rock stars
When hip hop drove the big cars
In the time when new media
Was the big idea
That was the big idea

THIS (x1000).  In fact, I'd take back all my prior comments just to have the end of Kite replaced with better lyrics.  I'm almost always in tears by the end, and then hip hop cars comes on and I'm always like "wtf"?

The "heavy as a truck" line in Electrical Storm. Love the entire song except that one line in it. It's terrible.

exactly.  they should have just stopped with this, which I love:

Did I waste it?
Not so much I couldn't taste it
Life should be fragrant

Breath .... I tend to have a love hate relationship with this song.  Theeees dayyyyys part along with cocatoos and stocks are just weird,  but on the other hand I still blast it and love the grace inside a sound.
