I'm You is an AMAZING song!! :p

And I always thought that if you like Un Love Me then you'll like When it Hurts. Don't ask me why but it's like they're brother and sister :')

First post :p

Just curious, has anyone ever come across the 4:04 version of Myself? It was on the Italian Maxi CD of Forgive Me apparently, but I've only got the German single and my version is 3:50...

edit: nevermind, Novel just said there was only ever one edit of it. :p

Here we are nearly at 150 pages again, why is it so hard to get a new thread!!


You only need to ask nicely (or wait for me to ask!).

I hate Myself. I wish they had put the other Claude Kelly written song Like I Do as the B-side.

No! Myself is brilliance. I love it, better then quite a few Spirit tracks. You Bring Me Down is definitely album worthy aswell. She needs to get into the studio with Salaam Remi again.

You should hate yourself for not liking that song! :p

Novel's such a good lyricist and producer, his solo work is incredible. I hope she works with him again soon. :D

I thought that it would be nice to thank our most frequent posters during Part 48 for keeping the post count ticking along, although we not agree with everything they say!

You know who they are, but for the record:

are we the same person?! YBMD and Myself should have been on Spirit, along with Nowhere Left to Go (or at least on the US version). Misses Glass is also incredible.

WHAAAAAAAT? Maybe but Unlove me is a hot piece of ass while When it Hurts is the most unpopular kid in a school.

LOL! Maybe hate was a strong word, but I'm not very keen on it. Sounds like a jamming session where they are just messing around in the studio. It is very organic in its defence. :o

I LOVE You Bring Me Down and especially I Didn't Wanna Hurt You. My God the middle 8 on IDWHY is just:eek::cry:

Part 49.....why can I see a trophy getting closer and closer...? ;)

Why do people always slam I'm You, I think it's a beautiful song. Unlove Me as well, her vocals on that are amazing.

I don't get the hate for I'm You either, it's really well produced - the only criticism I have of it is that she belts BABY IIIIIIII'M then goes quiet for youuuu... I always want her to explode for that ONE word haha.

Un Love Me is a toughy, the chorus is PERFECT, but I feel like the production is lacking in the verses and bridge... it just sounds a bit unfinished/quiet to me. I still enjoy it though a lot :)

Apparently it's boring. Yet people love The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face which was reportedly responsible for causing 85% of the comas in England in 2007.:confused:

I like that, it matches the vulnerable feeling of the song....towards the end she goes for it though, after the middle-8 she goes "Baby I'm YOUUUUU" into a flawless G5(??) I love that part.

I think Unlove Me sounds like that because of Leona's love of acoustic/live sounding music....I guess she decided against heavy production on that one because a lot of the other tracks on the album have quite complex production.

Lmao....I find TFTEISYF boring, but not as much as Here I Am. That is the only Leona song I don't listen to because it is just sooooooooo boring. :o

it's just before that bit where she goes into her head voice, then belts the Baby I'm You... it is literally that one word - I love everything vocally after that, but that bit I always expect her to belt in chest voice but it's just not there haha. :p

AND WHAT KIND OF LEONA FAN FINDS THE FIRST TIME BORING?! That song is a classic! :eek::eek: :p

I love the vocals don't get me wrong, but I think I overplayed it to the MAX when Spirit first came out so now I just find it a bit boring. I still listen to it from time to time though, unlike Here I Am, I think that's one of the worst songs she's recorded.

lyrically I related to that song a lot with my best friend at the time because I was just coming out properly and really figuring myself out, so it'll always hold a special place in my heart for that reason.

I can see why people would think it was boring though... lol

Omg, I remember when I first heard it, I loved that track! Played it to absolute death. Sure I can't understand a word she's saying but that's irrelevant. I prefer it to Forgive Me. We have flawless taste.. http://images4.fanpop.com/image/phot...95-500-199.gif

I never liked Here I Am until I heard it in Prayers For Bobby a couple of years ago. That movie about that guy who jumped off a freeway overpass because his mother would not accept him, it was based on a true story. Now the song seems very sad for me, I don't hear it the same way. :(
