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.


There you go a uncensored review as per your request  :D



To me they have meaning and it's very simple. Someone ho's not comfortable in their own skin and are lacking, maybe momentarily, in life, of an identity. She's not sure of her own decisions.

As to the music of the song I won't argue with that. I feel they're one of the most refreshing rock bands to come on the scene in years. You don't. Opinions



One thing I'll say. I hate that hip hop is everywhere. Blacks are like ruling the world with this appalable sound and lyrics about taking 10 shots to the chest or whatever. I don't care. I hope hip dies a fast death. I never want to hear it again. Never, ever have I liked rap.

Yeah, not seldomnly do I find myself talking stuff from music, films or even borrowed from my own experiences. happens a lot

Like I don't like Bon Jovi but I grew up with 2 major albums on my mind of which I knew all the lyrics. i even wrote them down on a piece of paper. Me and my friend Steve when I was still living in Connecticut

They were Michal Jackson's Bad. I was always singing "Man in the mirror". i was obsessed and Bon Jovi's self titled debut album. Mainly "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Living on a prayer".

I use that expression you give love a bad name a lot, with friends

Ok. It's time to bring out the metal stuff (nu wave if you prefer).

Here we go with my favorite tracks of these two bands(actually that's not my favorite Snot track. That one is "I just Lie" but there's no music video):

Just watched the live musical concert of Jesus Christ Superstar on DVD. The music was very close to the original one back in the 70's but in a more modern days. They all did a fantastic job with great music, great choreography, fantastic singers and a nice treat by Alice Cooper. But the one that stole the show was Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene with the song "I Don't Know How to Love Him". Sorry if the video is poor, but the music is good.
