Talk:You Don't Like Me

From This Might Be A Wiki


Can someone who likes this song explain to me why they like it? I'm not trying to come off any certain way, im just curious because I think the song is pretty boring and not interesting. - Imboss5

I like the song because it has a really nice melody, especially on the "From across a crowded room..." sections. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 23:22, 12 March 2020 (EDT)
I like the theme & the way Linnell inhabits the character. Also enjoy Marty Beller's performance. I don't skip this one. --Nehushtan (talk) 00:07, 13 March 2020 (EDT)
It's certainly not a barnstormer. Linnell's lackluster vocals lead me to believe he wasn't fully invested in it, however much he might have "liked" the idea or character. The list-style song is of limited use or appeal in general, and I think he did it better with "Money For Dope", which is much livelier (at the very least). As for the instrumental backing, it gets the job done. The melody is OK, if somewhat standard for Linnell. None of it gets me over the hump of the fact that this is simply a below-average average tune from a guy who has written more than his fair share of masterpieces. Hey, it happens. --MisterMe (talk) 11:07, 13 March 2020 (EDT)
It might have been so that they could end with a slow/gentle track on Join Us. --ColorOfInfinity (talk) 22:08, 13 March 2020 (EDT)
I like it for what it is, but I think making it the closing track did it no favors. I often skip it just because Three Might Be Duende is a much stronger closer. --Bluef00t (talk) 14:18, 16 March 2020 (EDT)
