Song opinions[edit]

One of the greatest TMBG songs written, in my opinion. --Overjoy 17:04, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

THE greatest TMBG song ever written, in my opinion -Blind Simeon 18:28, January 24, 2007
FINALLY SOMEBODY has the same opinion as I!-- 00:18, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
possibly the greatest song ever written ever Jade 7:43 March 27th 2007
Amazed to see how highly rated this song is on the wiki list. I always quite liked the melody but the ham fisted lyrics never really worked as Linnell can't work out to report or preach. (Mr Tuck) 16:49, October 25, 2015
Definitely one of their best. Probably in my top 10. Don't really get Mr. Tuck's problem with the lyrics, they're amazing, but I'm pretty used to him bashing songs I love at this point :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by ASelfCalledL (talkcontribs) 01:12, February 22, 2018
Sometimes I wonder if good ol' Mr Tuck makes such statements with the full knowledge that they may irk lots of other fans... --MisterMe (talk) 08:23, 16 August 2019 (EDT)

Spiralling vs. Spiraling[edit]

Which is the correct spelling? iTunes tagged the song as "Spiralling Shape", but this article has it as (one-L) Spiraling, and two-L Spiralling is failing the spell check. stalefries 00:51, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Obviously the person who submitted the CDDB tag was incorrect. -CapitalQtalk ♪ 00:53, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
we spell it with one L here, but in the UK two are used. same goes with the past tense (spiraled/spiralled). --ant 00:17, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
Two "l"s are also used regionally in English-speaking countries, for the record. -Apollo (moo) 00:52, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

This is my favorite TMBG song[edit]

The concept is very realistic. People taking a dare to do something stupid just because of peer pressure really sounds like the real world. And it's coupled with lots of amazing lyrics ("Fogging the view, cupping face to the window...") I really like the swing rhythm in the first section, but somehow it just fits in with the rest of the song. The melody is really catchy (like in most of their songs), and I always feel particularly attracted to the arpeggios in the "And nobody knows what it's really like..." section.

This is currently my favorite TMBG song. It's longer than usual, but not boring, which shows that lots of effort was put into it. The lyrics and music are both absolutely perfect. I know all the lyrics, and sometimes it's hard not to break into, "Fogging the view, cupping face to the window, in darkness you make out a spiraling shape." All the time.--ColorOfInfinity (talk) 17:43, 15 August 2019 (EDT)
