Not a bad track I suppose.

Edit: Cool track.

**Most played song on triple j for 2011**

Not bad, poor choice of follow up to Pumped Up Kicks though.

I don't particularly like the vocals, I find them more annoying than in Pumped Up Kicks, but it's probably due to myself being not used to them. Overall it's a solid track. 4

EDIT: Grown on me quite to the point where I enjoy the quirky vocals. I love the use of the synth, it's very cool and the production of the track is very well done with the upbeat combination of percussion, synth and vocals.

Cool song.
*****
Enjoy this song, but nowhere near to the way that I enjoy Pumped Up Kicks.

EDIT: Time for an update.

This is brilliant! Still not as good as "Pumped Up Kicks" though.

4* -> 5*.

Okay song.

"It's kind of about the dichotomy between partying and the keeping your life together at the same time. I see that a lot in Los Angeles, people looking really good and they've got this big smile on their faces but they're so wasted they can barely get into the car." Mark Foster: FOSTER THE PEOPLE

Peaked at #74 in Australia, 2011.

Peaked at #40 on my personal chart.

Came in at #173 on my TOP 200 OF 2011.

Still like this track a lot but still can't understand how they didn't put 'Call It What You Want' on the JJJ compilation.

An absolutely stunning track, this is Foster The People's best song. A confronting, original beat interlaced with Mark's very unique vocals takes this to a whole new place. Love the hook in the chorus, love the concept of the song and the video is great as well. One of the top 5 tracks of 2011 for me.
****
The song's likeable, and catchy if you listen to it enough...The 'turning into a child' concept at the end of the music video was already taken 17 years ago by my username's namesake.
****
For a while I had this confused with "Call It What You Want" for some strange reason. Enjoyable but the vocals grate a little.
******
Everything about this is just magical. Great vocals as usual from Mark Foster, lyrical flow is great, and the chorus doesn't get old despite being repeated to many times. I love that instrumental bridge so much too. Still my favourite Foster The People track, and it might always be that way.
