Okay, so it says the track time is 2:31. The thing is, the copy of Ondine I got off LimeWire (sorry!) is 2:34. I later got Back To Skull LEGALLY, and the version of Ondine on there is 2:31, like this page says--but they sound like they're the exact same length. I can't hear any added silence in the copy of Ondine I downloaded, but I checked, and the version on the CD is most definitely 3 seconds shorter. As I said, there's no apparent additional silence in the LimeWire version, and I can think of no reasonable explanation for this. Anyone know why this might be? ~Anna Ng hears your words. 06:16, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, maybe if there's no added silence at the end, it's at the beginning; if I remember right, there is a kind of fade-in coming into the weird typewriter-sounding clicks. And if that's not the case, just play the two different files simultaneously and wait to see where they diverge in congruity. ~ magbatz 19:14, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
I should definitely try that at some point. :) Thanks! ~Anna Ng hears your words. 07:35, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Could just be the terrible MP3 encoding causing the length to be off by a few seconds. Keep in mind, Limewire. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 11:35, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

this is their best song ever. -- IP Address

Hmmm... People seem to really like this song. Is it really as good as people say it is? -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

It is good, but it's not as good :P --ElChanchito 01:37, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

actually its the best. XD --Veggieman 20:00, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Just listened to it![edit]

I didn't really like it so much... -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

Changed my mind. -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")
Good. --veggieman.//(leave a message after the click?) 02:58, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
Ondine is basically THE go-to "look at me I'm sooooooooooooooooo hardcore I'm gonna say this is my absolute fav song to show you how hardcore I am when actually my favourite song is probably 'Particle Man' " song. I'm not sure why but it's true. I'm not saying it's true of everyone...but I just find it interesting that it gets held up so much more highly among a lot of people than any other b-sides except perhaps Birthday when there are MANY others that are quality (and I'm not just talking about Linnell ones), and that sometimes the people who who do so have no other b-sides or other rarities knowledge whatsoever. It's weird. It is a good song though. --Self Called Nowhere 16:14, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
That is so true. So. True. It seems so rockish that I wouldn't be surprised if someone found out that it's a cover. (of course it's lyrically Giant) -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 16:53, 23 September 2010
Wait, what? How does it being "rockish" have anything at all to do with what I said? There are other songs that are about a million times more rockish anyway, especially Flans ones. --Self Called Nowhere 16:55, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
Like what?
Have you listened to that little album this EP was released for? Not sure how you can tell me Ondine is more "rockish" than, say, AKA Driver or Sleeping in the Flowers, and more recently With the Dark would obviously be a huge example. And you're still not explaining what exactly its rock quotient has at all to do with it being overrated poseur bait. --Self Called Nowhere 18:55, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
Easy there, Quinn. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 20:07, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
I find it hard to explain, just as you do, Quinn. And I don't think With The Dark is particularly rockish. Nor Sleeping in the Flowers. If either of those were released on an actual rock not-alternative-not-They-Might-Be-Giants band, it would be laughable. But not Ondine. I don't know how to explain it. And if you look back and read this section again, you'll find that I am actually trying to agree with you. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 20:23, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
I saw the part where you said you agree. But the thing you are apparently agreeing with is not something I said or even believe, so that's the part that's confusing me. But um, ok. I guess we just have different definitions of "rockish" because, for me, something like With the Dark ROCKS MY FACE OFF, but, ok. --Self Called Nowhere 00:00, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Yes. I was just listening to With the Dark. I know. Yes. Ondine seems more…classic rock, if you will. I don't know. -- DidgeGuy (आ ज) 00:37, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Reminds me of the V-roys[edit]

Reminds me a lot of the V-roys - a subtle blend of rock, rockabilly, alt country, and power pop. But the clincher is a greek mythology name for the girl.

Of course the V-roys came along much later :-)
