8.5/10
Reminds me of a more powerful and cute Japanese version of The Cranberries. Great guitar, adorable vocals, and catchy chorus.

From what I can tell the song is about a homeless girl in the 20s giving birth to a baby in the street at night :shock: Don't let the length scare you off. The last half of the video is silence.

Ummmm...... so yea. Interesting lol. The lyrics are a bit confusing for sure and I dont get what the song is about, but it did have a nice beat. Maybe I gotta listen to it a few more times heh. Made me think of a club at night or one of those cut aways to someone driving at night past neon signs like in a movie or something. Then again after listening to a bunch of BoA I might just be imagining that for everyone now lol. Gonna give it a 7.0 out of 10 because I did like the beat. Maybe I'm being generous.

Been listening to some various rock ballads and softer songs and this one has been a frequent one. Like the piano part of it alot.

5/10
I wish there had been a bit more emotion in such a somber sounding song. The vocals and music sound lazy and don't ever reach a level that got a response out of me.

7/10 Not bad, but the guy's vocals are very distracting at times. Sounds more like something that would be associated with Persona considering their current trend in soundtracks, but I guess someone thought it would make a good FFVIII GMV.

Being October I thought it would be good to try getting some Halloween themed music going here.

Never heard a gothic and trashy rock mix before :lol: it's surprisingly somber and melancholy to me even though I usually hate these kind of vocals. It's an effective song. I wish the music had been darker.

8/10. Very amusing lyrics, heh heh. Also really liked the sort of electronic indie rock sound of it as well. Kind of just all in all a really fun little song.

I seem to be in the mood for nice little laid back ballads like this a lot lately.

7.5 Very somber and easy going song. Cracker is pretty good at easy going songs like this and more catch songs like "Low" from the same album. Kinda remind me of the old Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Continuing my Halloween theme.

While I did enjoy the song, I absolutely loved the music video. It's rough, but still very melodic so I was able to enjoy it. Good tune.

*If you happen to like the song do download it at i-tunes. The proceeds go to the victims of the earthquakes that hit Japan. :)

^ 7.5/10: Is this what dubstep sounds like when it's not annoying :lol: ? It was a fun song to listen to.

Pretty fun song. It seems be somewhere between corny and just plain awesome :lol: I love the vocals. Very medieval maiden meets rocker.

I've been waiting for someone to bring life back to this thread :D

6.0/10: The music video was far more interesting then the song its self. And can we please try to reduce the use of autotune. It sounded cool the first time I heard it but now it really annoying.

I LOVE The Postal Service and this is one of my favorites. I guess the only minor complaint I have is that this song used to be (and kinda still is) very overused in commercials, TV, etc.

8.0 out of 10

Well can't say I've knowingly heard of Jhameel before. The beat was catchy. For some reason it made me think of zany sequences you might see in some romantic comedy anime. Like a montage sequence. That or I'm just losing my mind. The beat and lyrics are catchy and light but fun.

8.5/10: Nice and jazzy. Makes me feel like I in some 1940s area bar, have a glass of scotch.

Love the music big time, but not too big a fan of the vocals. At all. They just don't complement the music which is pretty strong.

7.5/10 The vocals are weird, but at the same time they give the song a unique feel. I like that the melody takes some unexpected turns throughout the song. It keeps you on your toes and succeeds in avoiding being predictable. I like the the strings too. Sounds like a bright, cheery song for the summer.

Another summer song.

Neat song. The video was a touch odd. Seemed a bit disjointed from the song. I did enjoy this song. Nothing fancy. Straight forward and really catchy pop tune. This is the kind of stuff people should be driving to and have blaring out of their cars. Not that poser variety of hip hop I hear every now and then around town. It may be just "another summer song" but I'm not complaining. 10/10

Pretty nice, catchy song. I'll give it a 7.5/10. I took off some points because it reminds me a lot of the song they did with Tiesto.

Sorry only a 6.5 out of 10 from me. Just never been a huge Boston fan. Sorry Tom.

Here is a fun one.
