Never Think



WARNING. This blog post will not be kind to Rob Pattinson. Die hard fans turn away now.

If you haven’t listened to Rob’s song Never Think you can go here to have a listen – just so you know what I’m talking about.

My friend gave me the Twilight soundtrack a while ago but because it was on iTunes formatting I never got the chance to listen to it until now thanks to my lovely new iPod Nano. Most of the songs I like but this one has to be one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard.

Alexie’s Top 5 Reason’s Why ‘Never Think’ Sucks:

1. The intro is waaaaay to long. Yes the guitar rift is quite pretty but after 1 min and 17 seconds you start to wonder if there is more to life.
2. What the hell is he even saying??? It sounds like he’s taken one too many sleeping tablets and is struggling to open his mouth wide enough to say any words. All I hear are a series of vowels ‘ahhhhh’ ‘ooooohhh’.
3. The actual lyrics suck. I looked them up. Out of pure curiosity. My favourite verse?

Once I put my coat on
I'm coming out in this all wrong
She's standing outside holding me
Saying oh please
I'm in love
I'm in love

Yeah okay. I totally get that. Not.
4. Its repetitive. I guess that's mostly because you cant tell what he’s saying – but its the same melody the whole way through. No harmonies, no real variation. Boring.
5.The only reason this song is even known is because they featured it on Twilight. There is no way it would have been signed otherwise.

I guess what I’m trying to say is:

Rob if you think you’re a good musician, then no. You should never think.

OMG Alexie.. now maybe you already know this but I didn't and it totally flipped me out. Did you know Rob Pat played Cedric in Harry Potter???

And I'd love to listen to his song, but you've just scared me off it.. haha.

I'll wait till I see you next and listen on your ipod.
