Overrated (new version) Discussion


Recommended Posts

Lets discuss this incredible new version of Overrated here! Produced by Swedish producer Klas Åhlund (Teddybears Stlm) who produced Robyn's Body Talk albums and you can hear the similarities between some of Robyn's songs and Overrated.

I know that a lot of fans prefer the older version of Overrated but to me that's a completely different song (and absolutely beautiful). In my opinion, this one is equally beautiful and then some, in a very different way. Yes, it's a dance/club song with incredibly gorgeous sounding synths, but the lyrics are quite heartbreakingly beautiful as well. That combination sends shivers down my spine, especially when he's singing about wanting his lover to take his life and end his pain. Reminds me of Lana Del Rey's Born To Die (as I've mentioned before) and that's extremely sad but at the same time really beautiful.

Anyway, I could go on forever :aah: Love it!

These lyrics are mindblowing! As well as the breathtakingly powerful music. I'm in love!

 

Words get broken

Cut me open

Love confound me

Kill me quickly

Breathe out breathe in

Throw me living

off the deep end

While I'm sleeping

 

I'm a crazy fool

I'm a fool addicted

To the touch of you

To your poison kisses

What you got to lose

What do you think this is?

Nothing left to prove

And we know that love is

 

Overrated

Overrated in this goddamn world

Overrated Overrated

Overrated in this goddamn world

 

Stars are magic

Light this tragic

Crime of passion

I'm just asking

Offered up my wrist

And you thought you hit it

But your arrow missed

Couldn't kill me with it

All I asked of you

Was to free my pain

So you couldn't do

This to me again

... etc, and at the same time:

 

Words get broken

Cut me open

Breathe out breathe in

Throw me living

Words get broken

Cut me open

Stars are magic

Light this tragic

Oh, that's beautiful! I do love when it's just his voice and piano. It's interesting how the songs develop. This version is more hopeful/pleading, the others are angrier/hurt/disappointed. I love all

For me the best it's still the original demo version   

I've just seen the sinfonia pop version, and was completely blown away by his performance. So I listened to the album version and, I love it. 2 different takes on a great song. Both versions are power

I really loved the demo and I was really touched by it..

Then this version came.. I listened to the acoustic version first:teehee: but then I thought, why not, lets hear it.. I really had to get used to that upbeat.. But I love it! :) It's not too much, I think the song really needed it..

 

btw, the new version from Overrated is lower than the demo :naughty:

 

oh and I miss the higher part (in like the third line from the chorus.. the third time overraaaated)

 

edit; oh and btw, when I first heard that upbeat version (the preview on itunes) I was really annoyed by those weird sounds in the beginning xD I don't know if you can understand what I mean.. But those funny drop sounds..

I think I know what you mean; You mean those synthesizer drumlike sounds, right? Really popular in a lot of club hits :)

I need to get subscribed to this thread :D

 

Btw, I think that what Mika says after 'I'm a crazy fool' is 'I'm a FOOL addicted'. That what I heard at least:wink2:

 

yes i think that's what he says too..

 

I really love what i've heard of this song so far and yes i've heard the demo but never really got attached to it. In any case this is a different song (at least how i look at it) and more suited to my taste.

 

The itunes preview had me a little :blink: with the ultavox sounding beginning before it goes into the typical club beat we're used to on more recent mainstream club songs...can't wait to hear the entire thing!!

yeah I hear Im a fool addicted too..

That club song beat.. its not really something for me.. But I think I should just get used to it hahaha! I still love the chorus and the high part after that.. that 'crime of passion' part.. :)

I think this could be really good live as you get get the urge to scream along with the chorus :boing: and it would probably be awesome at 3 am at the club when you've had a few drinks too many... think I might skip it when listening to the album at home though :blink:

Lyrics are interesting and I really want to hear the rest of the story here...

Clearly, Lara, we've been working toward the same end :)

 

Here's what I hear:

 

I'm a crazy fool

I'm a fool addicted

To the touch of you

To your poison kisses

What you got to lose

What do you think that this is?

Nothing left to prove

And we know that love is

Once again starting from deb's lyrics, but it's really difficult for me to get the first part.

 

Words get broken

Cut me open

Love confine me

Kill me quickly

Breathe out breathe in

Throw me leather (?)

...

While I'm sleeping

 

I'm a crazy fool

I'm a fool addicted

To the touch of you

To your poison kisses

Oh I picked up that throw me off the deep end line immediately. This song is very dark and twisty. It's like a punch in the face after the demo version. :naughty:

 

That's why I'm crazy about it :wub2: But I still adore the demo version too.

This one just kicks ass! :mikalove:

I actually like these lyrics even better than the demo ones :boxed:
