Overpowered
Róisín Murphy Lyrics


When I think that I'm over you
I'm overpowered

Your data, my data
The chromosomes match
Exact as in matter
A matter of fact

These amaranth feelings
A cognitive state
Need the love object
To reciprocate

When I think that I'm over you
I'm overpowered
It's long overdue
I'm overpowered

When I think that I'm over you
I'm overpowered
It's long overdue
But I'm overpowered

As science struggles on
To try to explain
Oxy-toxins flowing
Ever into my brain

As science struggles on
To try to explain
Oxy-toxins flowing
Ever into my brain

A chemical reason
If reason's your game
A chemical needing
Is there in the brain

With pre-programmed meanings
Like a little more pep
Alien feelings
We have to accept

When I think that I'm over you
I'm overpowered
It's long overdue
I'm overpowered

When I think that I'm over you
I'm overpowered
It's long overdue
I'm overpowered

As science struggles on
To try to explain
Oxy-toxins flowing
Ever into my brain

As science struggles on
To try to explain
Oxy-toxins flowing
Ever into my brain

I'm overpowered

So charming, so beautiful, you're so sweet Róisín.

After all these years that acid bassline still rips....

Guy Stevens

The TB303 sound is ubiquitous but this is one of the best applications ever.

This bassline reminds me the track "Man Power - Renamed"

Ano Nym

@Nick Hyder Thank you

Nick Hyder

@Ano Nym it's from acid house/electro which is a 80s genre known for that squelchy melodic synthesizer known as a TB 303. So it's a positive reference

Ano Nym

Why do you call the bassline acid? Is that a positive adject in this context?

I cannot believe this song is 12 years old. She was way ahead of her time with her sound and innovative style. I loved her in 2007 and I love her now!

@robertorolfo there's room for both. I am no fan of Swift but tbh I have barely heard her music. The good thing about major pop stars like that is really the show biz attitude, the image. it's no longer about the music.

@drsw36 saying something is ahead of it's time is saying it is shit for it's time and would be more relevant in retrospect to another era. What, is this song more of a 2015 song?
it's a dull and generic electronic anthem. it sounds like an album track rather than a single. I don't hate it, but it sounds like I've heard it before when I haven't.

The real "ahead of their time" artists mentioned above were breaking new ground and their work holds up 40 years later. This video we're commenting on to me sound very much of it's time.
the distortion effect at a minute in is extremely tacky and out dated, people liked doing this when the technology was new but then realised it's shit.
other bits of the song, it has that sort of acid house bubbling sound. that was cool and ground-breaking in 1988, not 2007. This is a weak song that is trying to just be a generic same-as song.
It's not a bad song, but it's the same dark electro sound you had through the 2000's. It's not taking any risks like the real ground breakers do.
