"Rather than whiny, the vocals are typical of a kind of anti-whine that it seemed every singer in Britain agreed to adopt in the wake of Ian Curtis."

Huh?! An "anti-whine" is still a whine. Ian Curtis never "whined."

When in Rome, by a country mile! Come on, this isn't even a fair fight. Sure, you'd say Echo and the Bunnymen when you're ordering PBRs at a Decemberists concert, but when you're alone at home in the warm confines of your own conscience, you're a When in Rome man!

But seriously, this is a great song.

I don't think I'll ever get over how stupid the When in Rome lyrics are. It's actually part of the reason I love the song so much, though, because the song addresses how stupid and inadequate the lyrics are.

Anyway, it popped into my head today.
