▓ Kale plaat van "Sandi Thom" uit april 2006 !!! Er had inderdaad wel wat meer muziek in mogen zitten !!! Overigens zingt ze bijna "Acapella" zeer mooi !!! Nieuw binnen in de Nederlandse Tip 30 van 05-08-2006 !!! Precies 4 sterren !!!

You either loved it or hated it! Spending an amazing 10 weeks @ #1 in Australia, we loved it alright. I didn't, it got quite annoying after awhile.

2 Words: MORE CRAP!

That this had 10 weeks at #1, goes to show how low popular music has become...

The problem is you have to know what you're talking about if you want to make broad, sweeping statements. In this song, Sandi Thom brushes across different eras with little regard for how they work together, in a similar manner to Jive Bunny including songs from a decade apart in mixes, as if they were one in the same. The song being stamped by two conflicting movements (hippies & punks) is a confusing idea and doesn't work. If the point is to say that she thinks she was boring in...the incorrect timeline, and she's one of those people who thinks that the internet ruined everything...then we would not get along.

Otherwise, I'm just a bit confused by what this song is trying to be, musically. The a capella intro is rather unpleasant with how her voice grates, and if you want relief after that's over, you're out of luck as the track never really picks up after that. I want some sort of release but I never get it, the track just stays in first gear the whole way. 1.7

Average song and never got into this or liked it. She is a complete one hit wonder at the moment. UK#1 and Ireland#1.

This is a good song, I can't believe people hate it.

Yeah I really liked it when it first came out, it was classified as different. After the 12908312 listens, it does get a bit old. I was happy for her success and hope she can make a strong comeback in the future.

I cant understand how this stupid song even got to #1, let alone 10 weeks at the top! Simply bad.

I liked it, then I got sick of it. Then I came back around a bit, but not as much as before. Fun song though.

Not as bad as quite a few 2010 songs but the lyrics are kind of cringeworthy. Interesting that ex-Stone Rose Ian Brown produced this.

I really liked this, and still do when it comes on the radio and tv, which is rare these days.

really nice song but really .. a punk rocker with flowers in her hair? she would have been killed by the other punk rockers

Seems to have charted much better in Oz than on average (not sure why?) I think I liked this song for just a few weeks while it was charting. Having being overplayed so much, I've tired of it now.

It's quite interesting that this was a huge hit when it was, especially since the lyrics are critical of modern day society in 2006 and Sandi sings about the '60s and '70s in a much more positive light. The lyric "When record shops were still on top" is interesting too, especially as it hit #1 not long before ARIA allowed digital sales to be a part of the chart (provided a single had a physical release) signally a change in the way people buy their music.

I really liked the song at the time not really understanding the lyrics or the context of the song but now I'm hesitant to like it. Despite the lyrics being interesting as a 17 year old they bug me and seem too critical of modern day society and considering the way this song and the album rose to popularity through the use of technology and computers, Sandi does come across as being hypocritical.

All up it I do still just enjoy it in small doses and it is slightly nostalgic as I remember when this was huge (although until two years ago I didn't know that it was that huge). Admittedly I'm surprised at the amount of negative reviews it has gotten above me.

Bad track that spent 10 weeks too long at #1.
The worst thing to happen in an otherwise great year in music.
