I'm not really a fan, I'm not moved by it, nothing special there if you ask me.

Her voice is not particularity memorable, she can sing but so can a lot of others I don't listen too.

The music has a very heavy electronic sound, the bass track for example is way over enhanced no doubt intentionally for "club play" but makes for terrible listening IMHO.

The lyrics are just ramblings:

[Chorus]

[Interlude]
Take me out to the future
Just so I can look back into the past

[Chorus]

[Interlude]
Oh God I was strange now weren't I?
I hope that when I look back I will laugh

[Bridge]
I feel I'm losing control of my body
Control of my moods and my decisions and my money
I don't want to come undone
I am set to self-destruct

[Chorus]
I hope my body gets better
Do I mean my body or my mind?
I hate the word "forever"
I hate the word "change"
I just need time
Give me time
Space and time

They really have no real meaning (in my view and are just floated out there for open interpretation) whats worse is they really get lost in the constant (annoying) drone beat of the electronic bass heavy club music.

Taken as a whole no worse and no better than a lot of other music out there but just falls flat for me and does not make me want to seek out more by them or even listen to this track again for that matter.

I thought the photography in the video was kind of cool but it's meaning like the song is confusing too because it lacks direction--intended to be that way I'm sure.

But the question remains is she late?, is she running away?, is she lost?, is she being chased by zombies? is she doing a morning run in a wedding dress?, is she dreaming of running endlessly?, just lot's of possibilities but few answers it seems lol.

It's pretty much an art-house song/video the way you describe it, lol

Personally, I would sum it up like the Panda.

Here you go Tony you will love this, has the same mind numbing bass line and unintelligible lyrics but the Eye Candy (hubba hubba) makes it much more tolerable...

Emeli Sande - Hurts
 :D



Even has a little art-house at the end to keep Chouette entertained  :D

Could only stand the sound for a minute.  Had to turn off the sound to finish the video.

Man, we just have different opinions on music. Let's just agree to disagree and let's leave it at that. i think better thing is to just post music and stop commenting if we don't like it. If we like it we can say something but I don't think the purpose of this thread is to discuss opinions.

Let's just post music. Anyone can listen for themselves. I plan to put my music here whenever I see fit. I hope you guys do the same. Just post so we can listen. Maybe I'll like a band, or two bands, or a lot of bands posted and you the same with my music. So let's just post and enjoy music and let's forget about the critics.

And yes, I don't have the power to do so but with C's permission, you can post videos whose music sucks but if it has hot chicks in them, it's A-ok. Sorry Chouette. The opposite cannot be permitted. Texas law. Blame it on Texas...;)

Sounds good to me Alien.  Just make sure you leave off the "you have to like this" or similar comments like that.  Those are the only ones I have responded to if I didn't like.

OK... everyone into to the way-back machine, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times and remain seated until the video has come to a complete stop.

Sheena Easton - Sugar Walls




Track Trivia
"Sugar Walls" is the second single from Sheena Easton's 1984 album A Private Heaven. It spent 16 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, nine of which were in the top 40. It reached #9 overall, as well as #3 on the R&B chart and #1 on the Dance chart. The song failed to chart well in Easton's native UK. It was composed by Alexander Nevermind, a pseudonym used by Prince.

Bon Jovi - Bad Medicine

The version me and Jazzy like...



The original version for those who don't lol.

Spoiler Block


For the record I saw this show live, not the video filming, the actual New Jersey Tour Show, the one I saw was at a much bigger arena that the one shown in the video and they sadly could not get over the crowd noise, was a very poor performance, overall I have to say it was the worst concert I ever attended and I've been to quite a few...

I must admit Curt's videos visually are unparallelled. Keep finding these brillianty photgraphed pieces of "music" please.

Here's one from the vault although in terms of cinematography I don't hold a candle to C.

I find this next artist utterly fascinating
