OPINION

Wow – this starts off with a bang, it’s very rocky! Sadly, that’s where my interest peaked and didn’t ever come back. It sounds like an old record that’s being played on the wrong speed and it’s not for me!

PREDICTION

Won’t qualify!

LYRICS

“Ahhhh!
Ahhhh!

Inside you
Take me a little closer
Inside you

Cos you got speedy shadows on the walls
I see you
Inside them

Feel it

Yeah

I’m gonna fight for your love
Gonna run, gonna feel good
I’m gonna feel what my body knows
Gonna fight for your love
Gonna run, gonna feel good

I’m the real thing
I’m the real thing
I’m the real thing, real thing, real thing
