Did you comprehend Micro Cuts the first time you heard it?

Recommended Posts

I never understood the lyrics then and I still don't now

 

doesn't matter to me though, I think of his voice as just another instrument really, just forgetting about the lyrics

I'm the same way, really. It actually took me years before I understood lyrics in songs at all simply because I never really bothered to listen to them. But first time listening to Micro Cuts I did understand "to our souls" :p

Oh sure. My favorite part is about "destroying puppies dreams with our shoes." Or maybe the one about loving Moonpig. Hmmm...

 

:p

For me, lyrics after first listening went something like that:

 

"wewweeeeeeeeaaaaaaaa eeaaaaeeeeeeee

aaaaaaaaaaaaaa wwweeeeoooooooooaaaaaeooo

oouuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaa"

First time I listened to the song I couldn't understand a thing what Matt was singing. But now I can hear the lyrics too, but I still don't understand them...

i actually thought it was extremely bizzare and always skipped the song till one day i just thought i'd give it a go

 

my first impression was that it was some whacky opera heavy metal that would make you go mental

 

turns out i wasn't too far off :p

First time I heard the song, I hated it. Couldn't understand the lyrics and the melody seemed incoherant and random to me. Now it's probably my favourite on the album. I also had trouble understanding the lyrics up until recently now that I've memorized most of them. I thought that on the chorus he said "mercé, why you doing that?" instead of "I've seen what you're doing to me".

 

In-fact I still don't understand some of the lyrics. I just looked up the lyrics and the part where he says "megaphone screaming my name" I always thought he said "butterfly screaming my name".

Yeah, all I got from the first listening (and to make it even worse, the first time I heard it was from the recording on HAARP) I only understood that Matt inevitably has girlier vocal cords than a girl...

I also gave up trying to sing along a LONG time ago...

It was the first muse song I listened to, so yes, I comprehended how amazing it was.

I could only make out one line: "someone you should've loved", nothing else.:LOL: I found it rather annoying for a while but never skipped it either (I never skip songs on albums, way too lazy to do it). Then I started to like it for its weirdness.

Like most people, I had no idea what he was singing the first time and I'm pretty much the same now :LOL: I remember listening to it for the first time and I was like "WTF?!" and left it on because I thought I would give it a shot (definitely the best choice).

:LOL: for me too, but when I searched for the lyrics and listen to a song few more times it was better (I always wants to sing along now and belive me that doesn`t sound pretty :chuckle:
