In den Stropehn erinnert sie mich richtig stark an Marina&The Diamonds, was natürlich nur positiv sein kann!

Aber dieser Refrain und dieser Beat, boaaa *nerv*

Generation #YOLO

#myanthem (it still is kind of a jam though)

For what it's worth, I don't endorse "getting high and getting wrecked" at all, and honestly it's quite sad to see so many youths embracing and promoting this nature in such an almost positive fashion. It puts me off ever using drugs/getting drunk/other alternatives further.

I suppose I love this irrationally because I have no other reason besides the [s]heavenly[/s] builds before the choruses (most effective in the first and last choruses imo) and not wanting to go to school which, well, relates to me quite well. Otherwise it goes into the sort-of-guilty-pleasure category where "Fancy", "How We Do (Party)", "We Can't Stop" and countless others live. You win Charli, this time (except that I like nothing else on your album muahaha :P).

A bit messy and a real letdown after Boom Clap. It may grow on me though as BC did.
****
It has a nice build-up but the end result is a tad too average.
**
Too repetitive and lacks substance.
***
To be quite kind, it's average.
***
Not too bad, better then Boom Clap.
***
It's not as safe-sounding as 'Boom Clap' (I did not mean it that way!) but also not as effective for me. Decent effort.

Edit: Hmm. Initially enjoyed it but not really feeling it now. 3.5 -> 3

For sure better than Boom Clap. The Garbage-like verses are a winner, but the chorus could have been better. Not to mention the lyrics. 3.5
****
Not usually my type of song, but this works for me for reasons I can't quite explain.

Charli XCX's best.

Ok

This song should say "I don't wanna break the rules, I just wanna go to school" I always get confused and I sing that line like that.
*
This is just the perfect embodiment of music I dislike. The whole high school "bad person," "let's break rules," "yolo," "rebellion!!" attitude is repulsive to me and extremely immature. I despise how this attitude is glorified in the media even though this 'image' is always destined for failure. You wonder just how successful one gets with this sort of mindset to life. Actually, you don't need to wonder at all because the obvious reality is, these people don't get anywhere at all. Sure, it may work for a couple of hit songs, but say goodbye to a successful career if you decide to stick to it. Those hit songs will probably be forgotten in a few years too. You might say "but Linkin Park and Evanescence have had great careers and have produced brilliant songs in the process!" While I do concede that the angst that they embodied is not too dissimilar to this, their intentions and thoughts were on a much deeper level than shallow, immature lyrics such as "Getting high and getting wrecked, I don't wanna go to school, I just wanna break the rules." I mean, how about you just go do that and never come back. It is this vile attitude that has led me to despise this artists' music so much, as it was clearly evident in "I Love It" and "Fancy" too. It is not just her though. The long list continues with the latest Avril releases and most of Kesha's early releases, and this is the reason why I couldn't stand Rita Ora either. The list goes on and on for artists that go down this path really, and where are they now besides being washed up?* I don't care if I am taking this too far; this song personally offends me. It is simply not fair when someone tries to make something out of their lives and works very hard at it, and then here comes a most likely privileged, well-off 'star' who instantly becomes mildly successful by cashing in with a bitchy, rebellious, shallow and immature song. I guess I should be glad I haven't experienced this personally. If you want to rebel against the status quo, there are other ways to do it. This method has already been tried and flogged to death so much, that it is pretty much mainstream anyway. So maybe this is ironic instead? I doubt it. Especially with this song coming from probably the worst album name of the year: "Sucker." This absolutely reeks of immaturity and I find it vile and repulsive.

*Yes, Kesha and Rita are still relevant. But that is clearly because they have moved away from this awful attitude and have gone to perform more interesting, or at least more innocuous material, or have at least continued this tirade ironically.

This is just the tip of the iceberg with this song. Terrible production just makes this extremely uncomfortable and and difficult to sit through. There is absolutely nothing to salvage here. Please go away and come back with something new.
****
I was very disappointed when I first heard this as I was expecting something more explosive and fun yet we get this. The "break the rules" type lyrics are rather lame and not very interesting. If it had something more fitting production wise added to it I could probably pass it since it would fit and I could at least ignore the lyrics. The production here is rather neat but doesn't really suit the song. It has grown on me though and there's actually only a few lyrics that are annoying, though sadly they're in the hook which makes them all the more noticeable. My opinion is probably closest to Chemmical's, though I still think "Boom Clap" is much better. I don't think it's good that it has been in the top 50 when it has (Schoolies was happening a month ago as well as holidays which make people, especially teenagers more susceptible to potentially bad behaviour) but I don't find it too offensive. At least it's catchy and not totally a disaster. Something better next time please, Charli.
****
Certainly a grower for me. I wasn't that fond of this initially. Catchy enough with the different structures. The build up into the chorus itself is probably the weakest part as that synth gets a bit noisy. Not up to 'Boom Clap' standard for me. But a fair effort overall. 3.5*
***
In retrospect this is really lame but I got an immediate Prodigy feel from this instantly. Was more than likely the reason I was drawn to charting it.

Peaked at #21 on my personal chart.
