I'm So Sick Of You

Postby SmadaNave » Tue May 19, 2015 7:33 pm

I've been realizing that there isn't a topic for this, so I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the song.
In particular, what have you thought about the song originally and what you think of it now (and has the song grown with you in some way), how good is it compared to the other originals/style parodies/pastiches on the Bad Hair Day album and all style parodies in general, and, most importantly, if you're an Elvis Costello fan, if you can pick out or know what specific songs Al took inspiration from to make "ISSOY".

Personally, I don't think it's that bad of a song on its own, but compared to the other songs on the album, and one or two of the parodies, it might be the skippable track of the album.
I've done things that'd probably make you lose your brain
'Cause I could surely act the same... THAT'S MY DISGUISE!

When I heard the line "i never dated anyone this low on a food chain", I was like "haha, joke's on you, Al".

It's pretty fun song, but when you think of it, it's completely nonsensical. I mean, why don't you dump her ass and stop complaining :angry: .

I didn't enjoy the song all that much until I learned that it was an Elvis Costello style parody (which was after I got into EC myself). It mostly reminds me of "Pump It Up."

Same here, though in addition to "Pump It Up", I also hear some "High Fidelity."

I really enjoy this song, and my enjoyment increased dramatically after I started getting into Elvis Costello and realized how good the style parody is.
Full Disclosure: I have a soft spot in my heart for every track on Bad Hair Day because it was the first new album I bought on release day after becoming an Al fan.

It's an all right song for me. I'm not overly impressed by it. It's easily skipped if I'm not in the mood

I love this song. It's always been one of my favorites. The music is rockin' and his voice is just :wacko:
For the longest time, I thought that last line was something like "Well now don't you forget this mystery conversation." Makes sense to ME!

That's interesting that you both heard the word "mystery".
