Anyone else just hear it on 6music?
I could have guesed it was bad but wow...
a really slow downded cover of 'Horse with no name' with a gospel choir chucked in for good mesure at the end.
David Soul liked it.
David Holmes hated it.
they really are getting worse and worse as they go on
It's either Madonna, Phil Collins or Chris DeBurgh. Does anyone know which? Help.
I hate his singing. At least 18000 plays of the new Oasis song per day can just about pass by unnoticed.
De Burgh's Xmas song, about the spaceman.
razorlight's new single, or the grating overuse of that 'shocker' phrase.
It's soo damn stupid.
Sounds alright to me!
"she lives on disillusion row / we go where the wild blood flows"
"DISILLUSION ROW". "DISILLUSION ROW". JESUS CHRIST.
and as if that werent bad enough he completes the couplet with a line of baffling craptitude
and who gave him permission to use that fucking choir? its bad even compared to other shit songs with obnoxious choirs
and what do labels exactly think they're going to achieve by only streaming a minute of the song rather than the whole thing?
haha it does a a slight similarity to horse with no name in the melodies.
well, fucking "group of backing vocalists", then
it IS as bad as everyone suggested it would be.
and pre-empting the inevitable razorlight fan who accuses me of snobbery - if some unsigned band had jagged this on these boards it would be cussed down too. it's rubbs!
an odd choice for a single
That's really bad.
It's becoming harder to remember that their first album was actually very good.
I don't really mind them, but this is frankly LOLtastic.
my ears, my ears. that high pitched "loooooove me", hilarious
What I loved about Razorlight is was they were the most ridiculously over-the-top insanely pretentious band since Bon Jovi.
From that song on the first album that mentions Bukowski through to the amazing moment on Something Else where he sings "I met a girl, she asked me my name, I told her what it was" as though it is the most important, meaningful phrase every sung through to the version of Kirby's House on the War Child cd where they sing "take me to a house I can live in" as though it's the greatest insight man has ever known, then have an insanely over the top guitar solo and then sing "take me to a house I can live in" again and again. And at that point you think "the only way this could get more ridiculous is if they get a gospel choir". And then they actually get a gospel choir!
I was disappointed with what I heard of the second album as it was bland without the ridiculous pretension that made the earlier stuff so enjoyable.
But this sounds like the pretension is back. Which is excellent news.
just really, really bad. He has gone ever further up his own arse.
