The New Touch
Okay, I'm going to be friendlier to this one than most.
-I'm glad Stan Bush didn't re-use all the old sheet music and went for something entirely new as far as the tunes go.
-The parts of the verses where it's Stan quietly singing over the quiet sombre music really works for me.
-Rapping guy almost manages to single-handedly turn the song into a parody.
-The chorus feels like two very unlike songs have been stitched together, and it isn't working.
-THE ENTIRE VIDEO. Smiling guitar man, befuddled rapper face, random energy wind, pulling invisible ropes...it has like 4 or 5 built-in drinking games.
