My Own Eyes

Post by CharlesNelson »

Out of the four remaining MF tracks without a thread, this is the one I most want to start. :mrt:

Love song? Amanda Palmer? Both? Neither? Speculate! (My vote goes for "both" and I kind of hope it's a duet: "My Own Eyes ft. Amanda Palmer")

The title sounds like a normal song title.

This'll be interesting.

Hoping it will be something a lot like "If That Isn't Love".

I am assuming it will be an "If That Isn't Love" style love song with Amanda Palmer

The title sounds like it could be part of the phrase "I saw it with my own eyes", whatever that means...

I had thought of this too. While "My Own Eyes" might be the best guess for a love song based on what we've got to work with so far, it does come from the phrase Jon said. "See it with my own eyes." It could be someone telling tall tales about having dinner with Bigfoot and the dinner was a fish they caught together that was literally a mile long. That sort of thing.

Could be similar to "Why Does This Always Happen To Me?"

It could kinda be a "I swear! The fish was THIS big" kind of thing. Maybe seeing big foot, loch-ness monster, or chupacabra (with "my own eyes") or something?

I would like that idea a lot actually.

But...This song looks like the only one that could possibly be a love song. It wouldn't be a deal breaker by any means, but it would feel really weird without a love song. "In 3-D" is the only album without one so far. :(
