Single Review: Sandi Thom-Love You Like A Lunatic

74970_10151384075743933_607378358_nAfter we posted our review of Sandi Thom’s new album Flesh and Blood, a comment storm erupted on the thread as Sandi herself commented, and dyslexic/just plain idiotic blues fans decided to make accusations that the review was fake and manufactured. Let’s clear something up. Sandi Thom is talented, and the 20 year old reviewer enjoyed the song, therefore the review was positive, so shut the fuck up.

A SONG IS AN EXPRESSION. A REVIEW IS AN EXPRESSION ABOUT THAT EXPRESSION. AN ILLETERATE, DYSLEXIC AND QUITE FRANKLY STUPID COMMENT ABOUT A REVIEW MAKES YOU A FUCKING MORON. A WELL CONSTRUCTED COMMENT, HOWEVER, WOULD MAKE THAT AN EXPRESSION TOWARDS AND EXPRESSION ABOUT AN EXPRESSION.

Love You Like A Lunatic is the third single from Sandi Thom’s new album, Flesh And Blood, and is a slow love ballad. It was written with the intent to be a love ballad. Sandi says that everyone can relate to it, because everyone loves the insane and crazy feeling.

This song bleeds. It bleeds love. And it also bleeds lame. Yes, love is pretty rad, but so are computer games, so are a pair of new shoes, and so is the thought of 1 million fans #cutting4bieber. That is a bit far. Love is one of the finer things in life. Not everyone gets to feel it. Many people don’t deserve it. But when you think of love songs, this is something you would think of. It’s the song that you would expect from Sandi. It is still pretty awesome, because she is so damn talented. But it is nothing like the others from the record. There is a little known secret that you don’t release your best songs as singles. Put out the average ones so people are kinda impressed and buy it, then their mind is blown when they listen to the full record. I hope this is the case.

Love You Like  A Lunatic uses all those talented musicians in her arsenal of an ensemble, such as two of the Black Crowes, and having a husband as epic as Joe Bonamassa (Never mentioned to actually have played on the album though. Like they say… Don’t screw the crew! You will end up like Chris Brown and Rihanna……) you are sure it will be masterfully crafted by the most powerful music gods. There is plenty of piano. There is plenty of soft acoustic guitar. There is plenty of swooning and crooning vocals. The drums are gentle. Words like angel, dear, promise, heart, inside, life, together, and other pretty standard love ballad words are scattered amongst the bombardment of the L word.

While it is corny and lame, there is a goofy side to it. The fact that Sandi uses the metaphor Love You Like A Lunatic instead of something like Love You Like A Rose or something generically boring and bullshit (that’s what chicks say isn’t it?) means that there is a fun side to it. She also mentions her ass. More so the fact that she is a pain in the ass, but if this was a song by a male, the title could be more something along the lines of Love You Like A Perfectly Rounded Set of Buttocks, as we as males are so damn stereotypical ourselves. So don’t be hard on Sandi for the fact she was stereotypically lame. It was from the heart, and unfortunately, the female heart is lame when it comes to love. Whereas males… males just love ass. Sing more about your ass Sandi!

  1. Its pretty good for a sappy love song. Probably would have to listen to another song or two before I bought the album but I still like it. Love how full of sound it is. And the pain in the ass line is great.
