    I've come 360 with this. I hated it and now I love it! The power of Tori!

    Did anyone else think she was singing "echo Nazi" instead of "I could not see"?

    If anyone could identify the type of drum/percussion that is used to fill between chorus lines id be very thankful. Metal sounding, makes me think of Frozen by Madonna

    Isn't it just a steel drum sound - which is why you say "metal sounding"?

    Oh wow. I still hate it. Can't do anything about it, it might be my new Maybe California and I feel sorry because I think the album is 500 miles beyond AATS or even UG.

    I’m absolutely in love with this song. It’s got maybe the best melody on the album in its chorus.

    Thanks, yea that makes so much sense when you say it like that! Haha, but no... that's not what I understand a steel drum to be. A steel drum is more the sound of the instrument in the middle eight of 'Under the Sea' from the Little Mermaid.

    I think you might be right. Her voice to me is shrill af but the little melody line 'never meant to hurt you' kicks ass, but I have to say it also sounds overly familiar. I can't work out why though, and it's not Midge Ure I'm thinking of...

    I knew what she’s actually saying, but it always sounds like “echo Nazi” to me, and I can’t unhear it!

    Someone mentioned, and I agree, that that part sounds like Erasure.

    This is a rare song where I think the live vocal take is much stronger than the one on the album; I love the Toronto recording.

    I don't know them well enough to know a song, I just think it sounds like their style.
