And there was me naively thinking that AFP couldn't surprise/confuse/baffle me any more than she already has...

Guess I'm in the minority here for loving dance pop music/electropop.

Actually, I think people here do like it. (not my cup of tea but fusion is still pretty interesting overall).

I'm in two minds about it. The loyal, unconditionally supporting AFP fan in me screams "like it like it like it" and the slightly more rational side of me says "um...I recognise its uniqueness and it's still very clever, undoubtedly Amanda, but I cannot get on board with it musically." Which would seemingly be the whole point of the song, but after giving it a good few listens its a clever song but so removed from my AFP comfort zone my musical soul seems reluctant to embrace it. Yet. Interestingly if this was created by any other artist I probably would have dismissed it but as its Amanda, I'm much more open and willing to let it grow on me. But I will wait for the full album to fully pass my judgement!

But I do think it represents the beginning of something musically awesome, that I must say. :coolsmiley:

I love it.  But that may just be because I am Tasmanian.

I've had to listen to this song on repeat almost all weekend (mostly for the video shoot!), and surprisingly, it's still stuck in my head and I'm not sick of it! It was exciting to see people's reactions - first hand - when they first heard it (for the video) because it really is unlike anything else from Amanda, it ellicited a lot of smiles and head bobbing.

It's interesting to think about this song because at face value - it's a joke, a play on words, so to speak, but deep down it has an actual message, an important self-image statement, and a message about sexism and female empowerment, but it's wrapped up in a fun little bow so it isn't a heavy song.

The Young Punx phat beats are definitely something new to any Amanda song we've ever heard... i like that the intro still has the simple uke part, it's a nice nod to the origins of the song.

even though i;m not into this kind of music, MOT is stuck in my mind for days now, and since its release yesterday, i find myself listening a lot to the bandcamp edit. BUT, i don't see myself promoting that version in any way, simply because i wouldn't feel proud if anyone on my social networks that haven't heard of Amanda, identifies her with that genre. i'm afraid that even the lyrics, which i absolutely adore, have such a big story behind them for non-amanda fans to get, so they're might be easily misunderstood!

maybe Amanda should include in her blog some info and backstories of the creation of this album, so we could promote both links together and make sure people don't get anything wrong out of the songs

If people get the wrong idea bout the song, it's their problem. It's not Amanda's duty to explain her songs to people.
If they take it the wrong way, they take it the wrong way, not problems.

I didn't get what the song was about until I read on twitter I think, and I get it, but before that I just saw it as tounge-in-cheek jokes about the way people look etc.
Plus, if people don't get this song, and take offense, or take it seriously, they they probably wouldnt enjoy Amanda's music anyway.

i don't care about that, and i wasn't talking about that kind of misunderstanding. i meant that people won't give the A goes down under record a chance if they think its all about phat beats and uncompehensible lyrics. like contradictionary mentioned, i would discard this song at once if it was made from some other artist i didn't know, and if i had no clue of how and why it was created. and by doin so i wouldn't care to explore the possibilities of the rest of the songs of the album that carries MOT in the first place.

i'd rather wait for the actual release and promote the album with any other song that's more representative of what Amanda is all about.

While I don't hate it (just like I don't hate Lady Gaga), I hope she returns to what she's good at soon.

Loving the Peaches-esque artwork.

This is all sorts of AWESOME!!!  O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 Thanks Sean!!!

I posted my comment before reading the others and I just wanted to say I think some people need to lighten up. Music doesn't always have to be deep and meaningful ARTZZZZZ (even though this song does have a "message")... sometimes it can just be uuhhhhh FUN! :glasses9:

This song is impossible to listen to while sitting down without chair dancing... :headbang:
