According to [labyrinth], MTV Italy.
Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...

I think we see a regular video, but the simplicity of it maybe be the good aspect.

I hope CURE keep doing non-commecial videos, or at least, ver well produced.

I have really mixed feelings about the song. I think it has a great intro, but that's about it.

The lyrics are just completely ridiculous/embarrassing. It makes Mint Car sound like Faith by comparison.  :oops:

However, there is this subtle piano part that I think is really brilliant. It really reminds me of the "old time Cure" for some reason. Makes me think they have more stuff like this in the bag for the new album...

I noticed that too, and I really love it.
Anyway, I like the song -- I mean, it's a good single. The Cure's more commercial stuff has never been my favorite, but I'm judging it by that sort of standard because it wouldn't make sense to compare it to the things I prefer, like songs from Faith or Seventeen Seconds. So, remaining in the realm of commercial singles meant to get airplay and get people talking about the album.... I think it's good.

OK.
You know me, never afraid to give a hasty opinion that I will no doubt regret later...

I've only given it a few listens which means that I don't really rate it that much at all.

Musically: I like the intro, it's nice and poppy, with some simple and nice sounding guitar parts. I like the way the verses change to a "fuller" sound half way thru [the bit after "It's a mess up there" in V1]. I reckon the chorus complements the verses well. I like that delayed guitar in there and the last "it gets better every day" bit that seems to "depress" or "sadden" the sound of the chorus which is opposite to the actual words in that section..

Lyrically I don't think that RS went to too much trouble. there's some nice rhymes in there and word twists but it's not what I would consider his greatest work that moves me to the core... Like "Open" does..

NY Trip : is another story altogether for another thread I guess..

Barrel-organ, fair-ground feel.
Very much like High in its feel.
B side's better.
BTW.
Isn't this video classed as official?
Cheers
