But it's still amazing.
it's really good, but it's hardly single ladies.
Like, do you already not like Beyonce?
She's just never been 'Losing You' good, sorry.
Its very 80s and indie-bating with the video/styling and all.
And you still haven't singled out any specific Beyonce work that trumps it. And if you say' Crazy In Love' I'll scream.
Get Me Bodied
Ring the Alarm
Me Myself and I
Love On Top
Lay Up Under Me
Schoolin Life (pastiche but way more fun than Losing You imo)
none of them come close. There's some great stuff there but the fact you've included trash like Video Phone....
it just bangs even with Lady Gaga on it, that shouldn't even be possible!
good production but the song itself is weak as feck. best thing about it is actually the video, in which she looks AMAZING.
he's always arse at that, its just the way her voice sounds, the odd hook and the beats. Single Ladies is prob up there with Video Phone because of that too.
Which is why 'Losing You' is a far better song than her solo career has managed to muster up.
its all about the beats haha
-this is a better SONG- thing. Beat, vocal performance, phrasing, lyrics, melody etc are all parts of a song. I guess it depends on which of the these things appeal more to your own personal taste.
And also something that creates a certain mood and would still hold up if it was covered by a spotty 16 year-old on Youtube.
Idk, ask Burt Bacharach.
single just a little too much.
Because even the simplest vocals & beat ones have about 20 writers each.
there are, or if the vocalist wrote it or not?
no ones ever accomplished anyting in a group.
Individual vision gets lost and diluted in the mire of opinion. Most of my favourite music comes from bands with one or two visionaries, and the less outside influence between the brain and the track, the better.
I'll always maintain that individually people are quite smart, and their stupidity increases proportionate to the size of the group. See picture codpieceface linked to below.
Her vocals arent my favorite on that either.
I had other songs that I love by Beyonce but I tried to list songs that I would realistically rank higher than Losing You. Like Halo is cool but I like LY better for sure.
Heard it on Music Weekly, downloaded it, listened obsessively walking around town during lunch for about two months. So ja.
Not her sister.
But as far videos go, I don't think I've loved B as much as I love Solange in this one. She's adorable.
I think there is some obv bate from the other side as well saying that it is EASILY better than ANYTHING beyonce has EVER done, you know.
Nothing knee jerk about my opinion either. I've been sitting with the song for months, thinking about it intently every day.
but my heart isn't really in it. i just got sucked in by grouchland's hashtag
Nah. It sounds like a washed-up Whitney Houston Christmas single from 1988.
It'd be number one etc etc
I like it, I think it's good. But Countdown's better.
but you do realise it's Holiday by Madonna right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X7RyGBq2E8
