It's funny. It's quite catchy. It's, um, loud and happy.
22 Apr 04 ·jeanette: Yeah, you gotta love a bit of McFly. And the single came out on 7" picture disc too, which shows a bit of effort. 22 Apr 04 ·olli: no offense, but it sounds pretty bland to me. then again, i'm not really into that blink 182 "happy teen sunshine punk" kind of thing. 23 Apr 04 ·Mike: The chord sequence is very Pet Shop Boys.
I love this song, its so catchy and its such a great song to listen to at any time!!!
12 Aug 04 ·jeanette: At the risk of repeating myself, I do think McFly make some very high quality pop music, certainly when you compare it to the rest of the charts. To my mind, they're far better than Busted, to whom they are often compared. Issie, I like your enthusiasm for all things pop and long may you retain it. And thank you for your kind e-mail to which I have attempted to reply but it keeps getting shunted back to me... 27 Jan 06 ·dannysgirl: i love this song sooooo much!!!!
The track on the cd is rude so i put the radio track name. I dont really understand why the Black eyed peas are so popular but thats just a matter of taste.
available on CD - Elephunk
16 Aug 04 ·olli: it must be weird to live in a country where commercial censorship is so accepted. what`s the point of bleeping out or changing the offensive words of a song for radio play? the only thing you achieve with that is more cultural apathy. if the album version offends people, won`t they still be offended if they actually buy the album?
the original track content might not be particularily intelligent or meaningful, but at least it had a hint of attitude, not to mention a sense of fun. the rudeness was the fresh ting about the song, with a sense of goodwill you can even read it as a comment on how uncomplicated pop or "stupid music" makes the best party music (of course it does! admit it, you all love it!). the sanitized version just flat out loses its punch in my opinion. 16 Aug 04 ·olli: dammit, i always sound like a pretentious twat when i post comments about pop music. i love pop, i really do.. 17 Aug 04 ·Issie: Dont worry no offence taken in by me! 20 Sep 04 ·Mike: I'm not entirely sure why the BEP are so very popular either, but I do find most of their recent singles preferable both lyrically and musically to much of the rest of the American urban stuff that has been so prominent in the UK charts recently. In "Shut up" they even infuse their hip-hop with baroque classical influences, which of course I rather like.
