Nothing is as Good as They Say It Is


The new song from Sparks, "Nothing is as Good as They Say It Is," is told from the viewpoint of a newborn baby who encounters (waves hands around generally) all this and decides this is not a good place, and wants to go back to the womb less than a day after birth. Besides the depressing implications, or more so specifically because of them, it's rather funny. Really, can you blame a baby for being appalled at our modern world? Don't we all feel that way sometimes? The song is accompanied by a parade of cute crying babies in the video, but thankfully we don't hear their protests. The tune is a real banger.

Makes sense to me, I've spend a lifetime getting into wombs to escape the world for awhile.
