    Love the song, but Ronnie Wood lays down a clam on bass that I can never unhear.

      Ariana Grande - Problem ft. Iggy Azalea

      This song is a hit right now. Take out Iggy Azalea's bluster, take out all the hip-hop-isms, the goofy early 90s horn, and what you have is a fantastic wonderful RnB/Soul groove and melody (what a voice!) on the verses that breaks down to a pre-chorus which build and builds to...nothing. An 808 kick drum and some dude whispering. What a let down - with a massive chorus this could be a classic. Now it's just an oddity, soon to be forgotten.

        Hey, this is a fun thread! I was dubious about starting it but I'm glad I did.

        Martin, you'll probably like this parody.

          Oh wow, that is funny, I hadn't seen that, that's hilarious. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that about the song.

            Excellent - I like a good parody - and that's a pop genre that you can take this piss out of by the bucketful.

              As far as I'm concerned, this is musical perfection. Everything is so well balanced and arranged, each instrument arrives and leaves at the perfect time, doing the perfect thing while it is there. The drums provide perfect support while being wonderfully unique. Great melody, great harmonies, perfect ebbs and flows, from the sparse chorus to the explosive ending to the spacey second verse. ****************, I even love the finger slide on the strings at the end. It all adds up to perhaps the richest musical ride I've ever heard....

              So rich, in fact, that it took me at least a couple dozen listens to realize the lyric blows. I mean, it has a few bright spots, but it never goes anywhere and mines the tear thing way too much and not in all that interesting ways.

              But man, what astoundingly great music.

                Yeah if you want to distract from a weak lyric, throw on a cello.

                  And piano... particularly GREAT piano like in the chorus. And that chimey picked electric, that's great.

                  Seriously, listen to the song without any interest in the words first to get the true effect before trying to make them out.

                    Great song, yes, but that production sounds a bit homemade to me - especially the lead vocal treatment. Very good homemade, yes, and I don't think homemade is a bad thing at all, but it means I doubt this was ever a radio hit or put out by a name-brand label. Might make it harder to track down the artist/writer, etc.
