Kiss Tommorrow Goodbye...


...is my favorite song on ROTD. I love that self-rightous F.U. attitude. It really resonates with my most basic nature.

I too have decided that KTG is my favorite track on the new album.

Besides the attitude you speak of, the chords and power of the overall song is just more kickass than the more "corporate rock" sound toward the beginning of the album.

Also, the "3-2 Clave" drum beat (think "Wille and the Handjive")
(dun-da-dun-da-dun-da-dun-dun)....

...really makes that song different than the rest of them, because it separates itself from the typical 4/4 rock rhythm that I sometimes find tiresome and boring.

Just an all around good song.

I call it "ragtime" meets "swamp romp" anyone notice the strong resemblence to Speed King, during "I did a bad thing" it reminds me of the build up, toward the end of SK.

Yes. I could feel the buildup similarity to SK.

Other than the first loud wail during Before Time Began, Big Ian's "I Did A Bad Thing" part is my favorite part of the album from him.

I hated the 'bad thing' the first few times I heard it, and that happens every so often, only to grow completely out of.

It's a bit over bearing at first, but then it starts to make better sense for the song.

This is one song he didn't write from personal experience, I take it. emoticon
