    Listen to them back to back, it's jarring and depressing.

    I had listened to LD maybe 5-7 or so times, before dropping it from my loop of the album. And I have NO idea how it goes, off the top of my head.

    All I remember is the ridiculous lean into it. But as for the verses or anything else, I can't remember a single thing.

    Is it worse to be a bad song that's also forgettable, or a bad song you remember because it's bad/catchy?

    I loathe show tunes (Nick used to take ideas from BIllie Holiday - whom I love - female jazz vocals are usually great - but now seems to be drawing from the well of Broadway and Disney show tunes)

    in the end it's just way too sing-songy for my tastes.

    the ridiculous Shaggy vocal parts and the ridiculous show tune vocal parts are pretty much equally bad to my years, YMMV

    mixing two of my least favorite vocal stylings together in a single song was pretty much game over for me.

    I hope that Sade puts out a new album soon, so Nick can draw some inspiration from great female vocalists again.
