Which day?[edit]

I would really like to know when the lyrics to this song were written. I mean the date on the calendar. --Nehushtan (talk) 18:50, 4 October 2021 (EDT)

Ok, looks like it was written long before Jan 6, 2021. --Nehushtan (talk) 08:27, 28 November 2021 (EST)

Maybe the last single?[edit]

this one also has an I in the first word as the first letter, who knows. --⇂⇂↋ suᴉɥsuǝZ ʎɯɯᴉᒋ (talk) 12:12, 26 October 2021 (EDT)

Starts well but[edit]

Musically this starts really strong with lovely synth from Linnell. But Flans loses it by the time he gets to the awkward chorus. From then on there are a few flashy changes to disguise that they've run out of ideas. Lyrically it's a bit showy but that would matter less if Flans had not left him too much to do much vocally. Singing at the top end of his range, it's a struggle (reminiscent of Black Ops) and again with a strong female singer something could have been salvaged. I'm a big believer in never recording a lyric that's beyond you to sing live. Lyrically it's too clever clever and as is the risk with post modern songs, style triumphs over emotional meaning.

Possible Quote[edit]

The opening notes sound a lot like the "be kind to your web-footed friends" melody from the Sousa march Stars And Stripes Forever, but comically demented. I think it's deliberate and adds some extra snark to the song's message.--Nehushtan (talk) 08:38, 28 November 2021 (EST)
