"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 #8006 8-2-11 3:17PM Like  Reply

Lol, me neither dina8! - Spoonful_O_Sugar   535.2 #329 8-2-11 3:18PM Like  Reply
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   535.2 #329 8-2-11 3:27PM Like  Reply
But balloon wouldn't give it enough syllables  - cesium55   531.6 #332 8-2-11 4:04PM Like  Reply
Wondered if she was promoting littering... - BaseballMickey_CM   6086.1 #13 8-2-11 4:06PM Like  Reply

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   535.2 #329 8-2-11 4:57PM Like  Reply
I have to agree with you...plastic bag, although I use them, sounds Trailer trashish ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz   1060.3 #140 8-2-11 4:58PM Like  Reply
Agreed. Who really compares themself to a bag? This isn't American Beauty. Lol. - DannieLand921   30.4 #5234 8-2-11 5:00PM Like  Reply
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 #511 8-2-11 5:05PM Like  Reply
She probably picked it because saying balloon doesnt go with the rythym and it sounds weird replacing it. - Starr   550.3 #314 8-2-11 5:07PM Like  Reply
Very true, polka, but "plastic bag" ruined the song. So, "balloon" would have a different connotation...Maybe "rose petal" is better. - Spoonful_O_Sugar   535.2 #329 8-2-11 5:12PM Like  Reply
I wish I've seen more rose petals drifting around than gross littered plastic bags  - Polkadobo   382.4 #511 8-2-11 5:16PM Like  Reply
And it's a more feminine phrase :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar   535.2 #329 8-2-11 5:22PM Like  Reply
I saw a plastic bag floating aimlessly on the freeway. It made me think of you and I chuckled  - cesium55   531.6 #332 8-4-11 6:03PM Like  Reply
