"We're Still Here" is the third single not the second. So I have to ask, just how big of a fan are you?

:lol:

We're Still Here is by far the best of the singles, vocally, in my opinion. Only listened to it 2-3 times, but I had no complaints beyond Perry cramming "brother to brother" and "sister to sister" into the song randomly. That's been a recurring theme: these unnecessary lyrics, syllables, or vocal inflections that trip me up.

I have the same issue with "Someone" from Journey's ECL1P53 album. Everyone loved the song. As did I, until I heard Arnel drop the pitch significantly at the end of the lyric "a place in your heart you've never been befooooooore" in the chorus, which took an otherwise soaring and upbeat thing and took it into a nosedive for me.

JM2C. Good stuff, though.

Not as big of a fan as when he was singing for Foreigner, but I'm sure he is still a big fan!

Singing for Foreigner? Seriously, what the hell are you talking about and because I am not a big fan of what I have heard so far somehow means I’m not a big fan? Defensive or arrogance my friends and neither is flattering on either of you. Attacking someone for having a different opinion is a clear indicator of a lack of maturity. Totally unwarranted and a complete bully tactic.
