  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiathis song makes me think of nazi's...apart from that its pretty frickin awsome
  • Quentin from Sudbury, OnThe first time i heard this song i was struck by its seemingly casual and coarse piano intro, i thought to myself "a child could play that". Although upon listining to the song more frequently, the intro becomes more of its highlight as it eventually came to my ears as being very musically clever.
