  • i like the music, but Mike should be kept far far FAR away from writing lyrics. sounds like some kind of Stuart Smalley inspirational self help crap to me.

    i can see Mike running through the rain singing about being a human light. its not a pleasant picture for me :)

    Mike running or Mike singing? ;)

    I slightly cringe at the lyrics, the only line I like is 'It's an inside job today'. Still, I get the encouragement out of the song. It is my job interview song.
    When I was standing in the cold and rain at the Christchurch concert, I really wished they would play this one. It was the last song I was thinking of when I went there, but when I was there, it was the only song I hoped for. Not that I didn't get more then I expected. :)

    Job interview song...I love it. I will have to remember that if/when I interview for a job in the future.

    I know everyone gets caught up with Led Zep, Beatles, Stones, Floyd and so on..... But i sincerely believe that Inside Job is the best song ever written. I agree its one that you have to relate to to really feel it but in my eyes it is perfect.

    Am I crazy ?


    ladies and gentlemen, i present to you the single, most absurd post this board has seen... since someone said evacuation was the band's best song ever written a few days ago.

    you people need to have your heads examined.

    :roll: :lol:


    lol - there is a lot of competition out there! And yes, Inside Job wouldn't make the grade. As a live therapeutic experience however, it can be very moving!

    I wouldn't really know where to start with best song ever written - girlfriend in a coma, drive my car, break on through, moonlight drive, like a rolling stone - shit - there are a lot of fucking good songs in the world!

    Agree, Inside Job can't stand up against them - but then even PJs best songs are often as much about the passion as the craftsmanship. I would say Sometimes, In Hiding, footsteps - I could see myself defending them - garden, yes. mmmmmm.... this thread is doomed to a mass outbreak of arguments I fear! Hotel California is a brilliant song - I never liked Stairway much, I think four sticks is my favourite from that album!! :o Now TANGERINE - now you're talking!!

    Song helped me find inspiration when I was in serious need of overcoming self-doubt.  Like others, I remember seeing the advance track list and expected it would be a mediocre political track.  Turned out to be one of my favorites.

  • I love  Inside Job. Lyrics are a little cheesy but that’s what makes it fun. Reminds me of a great 80’s hair metal sing along but with great music. Always puts me in a good mood. Great song. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.
