Why?

its annoying and makes this song even worse.

POX sounds so basic - it doesnt sound like SP at all, but more like a youth club band - the structure of the song is obvious and bland.

there's just no pleasing some people.

we don't even know the real lyrics yet. he could easily be saying 'sunken'. how does one word affect the song so strongly?

It's a really good tune.

I imagine this has been covered before, but what's this Mina Loy business? It sounds like a chick's name courtesy of Rivers Cuomo. What's the deal?

tcm

i dunno about the Rivers Cuomo business but yeah she's some artsy chick from back in the day. not to be confused with Ms. Myrna Loy of the silver screen. what's she got to do with the song though is anyone's guess.

That's because they're pretty much a Christian Rock band now. I mean, come on....Bring the Light.

well, close this thread - cos POX has "sunkist" (as in the drink) in the lyrics. "sunkissed" is a completely different tune altogether.

Oh. We had to do a research paper on a poet in English (I did Sylvia Plath, just fyi), and someone was doing Mina Loy. Before that I thought Billy just made up the title of that song... ha.

The acoustic version was incredible, but the version on TFE is still good.

I listened to Sorrows recently and realised its actually a good song, TFE may not be brilliant but it certainly isn't bad, if not for the bland drumming/beats I think it'd be better than Zeitgeist. Although then you could say Zeitgeist would be a lot better with a few simple changes (better vocals/lyrics/no corgan choir)

I made the official call that TFE would rise to appreciation after a couple years, like Adore but without quite the amount of time. 2009 and Zeitgeist will start to gain some recognition, but in 2010 it'll be up there.

I've made jokes about TFE, but I've said all along that it wasn't that bad at all.

Mina Loy was not just a poet; she was one of the leading voices of a movement called Futurism. An extreme offshoot of Modernism, Futurism called for the complete destruction of all tradition and the constant building of new methods and new ideals. All the boundaries of tradition were to be not simply broken, but completely done away with, in favor of limitlessly novel trends.

A tie-in to Corgan's directive? I believe so.

the song seems to be saying the opposite, though. but i guess you have to own up to your fears before you can embrace them. y'think?

that has to be the classic tagline for 2008.

i can't understand His Lyrics either.
i thought he said

another dumb kid - shut up...

if anyone can actually discern the correct lyrics, Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/flaminghotchitones) me

You don't give a reason for your statement. Billy once wrote a song called 'Love'. Does this mean you don't want to hear him use that word in a lyric ever again?

I like the cohesion it brings, and this is something that I've noticed a lot in Billy's songwriting. A few songs on MCIS have the phrase "my one and only" (Zero, Lily, XYU), for example. It's a thematic extension, just like having similar production on a group of songs.

I like it when an artist does this - it makes an album (or EP) more than just a collection of songs.

And though many people don't like the backing vocals on Zeitgeist, I think the similar treatment on many tracks makes Zeitgeist more cohesive than it might have been.
