Mindy's review of The View, Same Jeans

☆☆☆☆☆

“Oh god this is the most annoying song since "Cash...”

Written on: 22/01/2007 by Mindy (82 reviews written)

Oh god this is the most annoying song since "Cash Machine" by Hard-Fi, which is saying a lot. Some twangy, nasal-sounding young lad who spent too much time listening to his dad's Levellers CD's sings about how he hasn't changed his clothes in days and he wants to go out clubbing. It's like what would happen if the Arctic Monkeys spent 6 months going to hippy festivals and listening to folk music. The song contains this pop riff that's probably an ideal pop riff because once you hear the refrain, you can't get the refrain out of your head; but the lyrics are so completely inane, the singing so nasal and annoying and the music so stupidly simplistic (in a very bad way) that it's like some insipid parasite that crawls into your gut and takes up residence, making you sicker and sicker until eventually it kills you. Just say no to The View.

You must be living on another planet Mindy, this song is fantastic, its not as good as cash machine by hard fi, but its still good. It gets my foot tapping!
<br/> The View, in my opinion will be bigger than the Beatles, you may laugh at this bold statement, but remember where you first heard it when it happens! Just out of curiosity whats the most days you have worn the same jeans for?

Hi Mindy. I have it on good authority that Brimful of Asha is played in chords G D and C.

Your wealth of indie tune chord arrangements is very impressive, and the editing skills aren't bad either. Surely someone this clever can't be a hottie, or can she?

Actually Mickey, I have it on good authority that &#039;Brimful of Asha&#039; used the 3-chord trick of A, D & E all the way through but this song is actually C, F, G, C, etc. You are not the first person to note the similarity though.

Mindy will like this one as she is the queen of all knowledge on plagiarism, I reckon this catchy tune has been "borrowed" from Cornershop annoying little ditty "Brimful of Asha", they have just given it a few tweaks, if the View had been writing reviews I guess they remembered to put those " " commas in, eh?

I only own one pair of jeans and I wear them every day. They have long since taken on a life of their own and can walk around which means I can nap <em>en route</em> to my destination. That still doesn&#039;t excuse this sub-Barenaked Ladies novelty song. They should listen to Adam Green and/or the Moldy Peaches a bit to learn how it should be done, except I think they&#039;re too young to be allowed to purchase anything by either of those acts.
