Talk:Didn't Kill Me

From This Might Be A Wiki

Was this song an accident or something? --ΰΌΊπ„žπ„†β“†β“€β“”β“›βŽˆβ’Ήβ“žβ“œβ“œβ“β“–β“”π„‡ΰΌ» 16:36, 10 March 2013 (EDT)

I wondered about it too. I loved Nanobots, but the way it ended was kind of strange. "Accident" might be a bit harsh though. The theory presented in the article with this song being a tribute to the old Dial-A-Song days sounds plausible, yet I still wonder why they had to put this as the last song, as it makes the album feel unfinished. --Freakiosis 17:21, 10 March 2013 (EDT)
I dunno, I think this song is pretty rad. But I feel like I'm in the minority on this one. --I am Zenith. 22:58, 10 March 2013 (EDT)
although i do not really dig the song, i am pretty fond of its aesthetic quality, and i like the humble manner in which it concludes the album. so, it's kind of ~whatever~ on its own, but as part of a whole thing i think it's kinda neat. maybe a bit too "weird for weird's sake", but i'm not complaining. -Apollo (colloquia!) 23:04, 10 March 2013 (EDT)
It really reminds me of the a capella demos of Rat Patrol. I don't mean that as a criticism, it just does seem like an odd choice for the end of the album. Like Flans was singing to himself and didn't realise the microphone was still switched on --ΰΌΊπ„žπ„†β“†β“€β“”β“›βŽˆβ’Ήβ“žβ“œβ“œβ“β“–β“”π„‡ΰΌ» 23:13, 10 March 2013 (EDT)
I like how the album starts with "Hi" and ends with "the end" Wout 04:40, 11 March 2013 (EDT)
My take: Flansburgh deliberately left this song unfinished/unpolished/underproduced. It represents the scant hope Humanity has that the Nanobots will not eventually completely take over our lives. Most of Nanobots is shiny and gleaming like freshly replicated specimens of the titular micro-cyborgs, but here you have a ragged bit of ephemera that closes the album on a dark but not entirely hopeless note. --MisterMe 09:13, 11 March 2013 (EDT)

Her Majesty[edit]

Is situated at end of 2nd side of Abbey Road and is of exact same length and style down to tape hiss.

Nice observation. I reckon there's a definite connection there.
