Apparently things don't change much around here, still the hipsters appear with their well worn, learned by rote opinions, and indulge in another wee polish in the company of their peers. There's hee haw wrong with the song, if you don't like it, just say so.
Fucking twats.

I can't work out if you're angry at the people who like the record or angry at the people who dislike it!

No, what, in your opinion, makes it shit? It's probably simpler to just say you don't like it.

It's a hell of a lot nimbler and more engaging than it was before he got hold of it





Gavin Sutherland would comment: "Most people take the song to be about a young guy telling his girl that he's crossing the Atlantic to be with her. In fact the song's got nothing to do with romance or ships; it's an account of mankind's spiritual odyssey through life on his way to freedom and fulfillment with the Supreme Being."


What a fucking fud :lol:

No, if I say something is fucking shit, then it is fucking shit. For instance, Teenage Kicks is fucking shit, but I quite like it, whereas Whole Lot Of Rosie is fucking shit because the singer is fucking shit. Clear now?
