"Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?" (Katy Perry, Firework). Worst opening line for a song? What do you guys think? I mean, she could have at least said "balloon."
I'm just not a big fan of her music - dina8 12.8 #7912 8-2-11 3:17PMLikeReply
Ain't that from like Americam Beauty movie - Cricket 224.4 #1537 8-2-11 3:18PMLikeReply
Cricket, I didn't even connect the scene in American Beauty to the song--maybe that's the significance! Whenever that song comes on the radio I think, "Geez, that's like the worst opening line ever!" - Spoonful_O_Sugar 527.5 #334 8-2-11 3:27PMLikeReply
But balloon wouldn't give it enough syllables - cesium55 531.6 #329 8-2-11 4:04PMLikeReply
Lol, cesium. But "blue balloon" would work. I mean, there's always a random balloon that floats up while the fireworks are happening! - Spoonful_O_Sugar 527.5 #334 8-2-11 4:57PMLikeReply
I have to agree with you...plastic bag, although I use them, sounds Trailer trashish ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz 1052.0 #140 8-2-11 4:58PMLikeReply
Agreed. Who really compares themself to a bag? This isn't American Beauty. Lol. - DannieLand921 30.4 #5199 8-2-11 5:00PMLikeReply
Plastic bags caught in a gust of wind are floating passively as compared to a helium balloon which floats straight up on it's own power. The meaning conveyed would have been different. However it really is an unusual word to have in a song. - Polkadobo 382.4 #502 8-2-11 5:05PMLikeReply
She probably picked it because saying balloon doesnt go with the rythym and it sounds weird replacing it. - Starr 550.3 #308 8-2-11 5:07PMLikeReply
Very true, polka, but "plastic bag" ruined the song. So, "balloon" would have a different connotation...Maybe "rose petal" is better. - Spoonful_O_Sugar 527.5 #334 8-2-11 5:12PMLikeReply
I wish I've seen more rose petals drifting around than gross littered plastic bags - Polkadobo 382.4 #502 8-2-11 5:16PMLikeReply
