:P Brilliant haha
I listened to a few Mystery Skulls songs after that. Ironically I feel they have better songs than what they chose for that video (commissioned?). But all-in-all, they're not my style - feel kinda like the 70's music I heard so much of in bad movies (and hear almost every single day at my current job...), especially with the lyrics. Without going on a rant, their lyrics tend to feel shallow and petty, especially in Ghost. Basically, they have a nice tune, but I need to be distracted because the moment I comprehend the lyrics, it just makes me angry. :/ Thankfully the music video did just that.
Of course, different tastes and all that. I still feel they have better tunes. Definitely check them out if you liked that song.
I listened to the album, very rarely does a WHOLE ALBUM captivate and this isn't
the exception*, but a few good tracks were definitely there. And years of following JRPG and anime, numerous friends of various backgrounds, living in a country where English and French are nationwide, and so on have taught me a good melody can outweigh the need for most or good lyrics.
Probably the same reason I can enjoy [some] Kanye West songs. Them lyrics are dumb as hell, but he makes a good beat. When a song DOES
have good lyrics and a good melody then that's just a bonus. :) I guess I expect music to have a good tune to be memorable before its lyrics are, or rather, it's easier to find one than the other, anyways.
Aqua's first album. Yeah, mother-fucking BARBIE GIRL and it's tracks!!!(i'm [mostly] joking)
But yes, different strokes. :)
My BFF and I hardly agree on a damn thing, I think we get along because we just debate the whole time.http://youtu.be/JGH0IgJ-7LE
Yeah sorry, I'm posting a Simpsons clip from an older episode. Homer's "Love Letter" is a thing of art though, and the drunken delivery, sloppy writing, and ...stupidity of the message absolutely kill me.
Fact: Old Simpsons in the best Simpsons and the early seasons were total genius.
