Song review: “Never Wanna Say Goodbye”
Band: By Eleanor
Location: Gympie, QLD, Australia
Date of Release: 20/07/13
Genre: Alternative Rock, Hip Hop
All the instruments are done OK: the singer knows his shit, the guitarist certainly plays the guitar, the bass player does what ever the fuck those idiots do, the drummer bashes shit with sticks, and then the FUCKING SKIP-HOP DUDE COMES IN!
A lot of people are really surprised when they find this out about me (I don’t expect you to be, dear reader, as you probably have no idea who I am, dumbass), but I have a definite soft spot for skip-hop (Aussie hip-hop).
The guitar was kind of really boring as fuck, the drums were good, the bass was just bass, the vocalist sings like his penis was confiscated at birth, and I think I’ve seen this EXACT video done by at least 420 billion other bands.
Dude and his girlfriend fight, he guts up in her grill, she tells his bitch ass what’s what, he fucks off and gets drunk in a bar off of a single, watered down light beer or some gay shit, gets thrown out of the bar for being a derelict tosser, cue some cutsie romantic memories the two had together, then he goes and apologizes to his crying girlfriend (who has WAY too much eyeliner streaming down her face, mind you), and then happy ending.
It’s like every romantic comedy + a Coldplay song + Bliss n Eso for some reason.
It’s like some EPIC buildup, with a HUGE bend… And then nothing really happens. I though old mate was going to bust out with some awesome shredding, melodic solo, but it just kind of came out like “OK guys, I’M GONNA GO FOR IT!!!!… On second thoughts, I’ll just fade back into the background, I’m shy lolz.”
I can’t even handle how run-of-the-mill and average this soft rock is. Also, the video has been done by every other band in existence before. And the guitar solo made my dick so flaccid, it’s practically inverted now.
