oooo I am so sorry I misread, IDIOT! wow, ending sentences with IDIOT is really cathartic, IDIOT! next time i’ll read more closely, IDIOT! i disagree with your interpretation of the chorus anyways, IDIOT!
I didn’t say it was ironic. I said it was banal, which means lacking in originality. Use a dictionary. As I’m sure you know (unless you live under a rock), “scream and shout” and “work it out” are oft-used phrases in pop music. Funeral is also my favorite album of all time, so no need to be so dismissive.
Love the songs themselves, but I can’t help but feel like they’ve never written a chorus as banal as “Can we work it out? / Scream and shout.” Not doubting that the catchiness will convince me otherwise. We’ll see how it turns out on record.
“They heard me singing and they told me to stop,

“Most of this mainstream pop (including JT) is METHODICAL MANUFACTURED PRODUCT engineered to key in on what market research says is viable.”
Well, yeah. That’s obvious. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable, albeit on a level that is GENERALLY, but definitely not always, more superficial than the enjoyment of most music.
NO NORTH AMERICAN COULD EVER CLAIM TO BE ANYWHERE NEAR THE BOTTOM?
NO North American?
Do you realize that even APART from the “bottoms” in the United States and even Canada (see: Rust Belt, Camden, Compton, Native American reservations… the list goes on), the Central American subcontinent is considered North America? Please, if you’re going to make confoundingly idiotic statements about privilege at least learn geographical terms first. Jesus.
