    Marina and the Diamonds



    An interesting choice for a single. I thought it was going to be Shampain. That song deserves a stellar video.
    Not sure how I feel about the video or the song (not one of my favs) but she is so adorable. Love her.

    Shampain does indeed need an awesome video, but I guess there's time yet still

    Oh No is one of my favorite songs on the album and I really enjoyed the video, even if it is a little cheesy.

    Yeah, I like Oh No, but in a lukewarm sort of way. Definitely not a "single," imho. If they weren't going to do Shampain, they should have done Are You Satisfied, for my money.

    The video is cute, though!

    I think Oh No! is my favorite song on the album so I'm happy it's a single, but that video... well, Marina's always a bit generic.

    I totally see the Madonna influence when I watch her videos (in a good way). Maybe she'll take a stab at acting someday. She certainly knows how to work a camera.

    Oh No! is one of my favorites from the album.

    The video? Not so much. It's kind of stupid and I don't want to see it again.

    So, two demos from her second album have leaked; they're titled "Sex, Yeah" and "Living Dead". I like them a lot! The song writing is much better than some of what I saw on The Family Jewels. I have higher hopes this time around. I've embedded Youtube videos of the two songs below, but who knows how long they'll stay around, so if they're gone, just search for them on Youtube. Someone is bound to reupload them.

    I like her voice and her style. From her album I like "Are You Satisfied?" and "Shampain"... but her lyrics are too autobiographical. I think she didn't write such literall lyrics her songs would be easier to listen to. I can't listen to some of the tracks coz I'm not Marina Diamandis.. They're about her and her only lol.

    Then that would go for almost every artist out there. I relate to all her songs.
    It was good while it lasted
