Talk:I Lost Thursday

From This Might Be A Wiki

This song gives off America Runs On Dunkin' era vibes, in my opinion. But while I like those short, catchy jingles, this one hasn't really grown on me so far in the 5 months since it was first released. It doesn't do much to increase my excitement for BOOK. ebow (talk) 14:43, 28 March 2021 (EDT)

Lost the plot?[edit]

Flans drops the ball with this lead single to showcase the new album, BOOK. The lyrics can't sustain the idea beyond the initial quip and ramble rather than resonate. The melody, essentially four short sections that last a minute and are then repeated twice is an overly produced, bass heavy, jam-like dirge. If this is the best tune on the new album, it does not bode well. (Mr Tuck)

I wanted to say

"I Lost Thursday" as a song that's "about the simple recognition that you're losing touch with time, but it certainly speaks to this moment." The song's musical bedrock is a bassline that Linnell recorded remotely. Flansburgh compares its "pushy fusion sound" to the band's landmark 1988 album Lincoln." -Rhythm and Booze --⇂⇂↋ suᴉɥsuǝZ ʎɯɯᴉᒋ (talk) 07:48, 28 October 2021 (EDT)

Good melody, OK lyrics[edit]

I've been getting the "Nights go right up to the next..." section stuck in my head a lot lately, although the lyrics in that section are kind of hard to make out. The song is a bit longer than it needs to be, but that kind of makes it catchy by repetition (e.g. the line "It's supernatural how spaced out we can be"). --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 22:45, 3 April 2021 (EDT)
