Not my fav track by them, but great group. And the other songs on this same album are great FYI.

I just love these dorks - they're so much fun, but they've got such talent, too - vocals, incredible instrumentals, and that quirky, devilish, tongue-in-cheek humor. They take risks not many artists would take, and they don't underestimate their listening audience. That's so cool... {#Music}

  All music is derivative to some extent.  Anyhow, I think that comment was intentional word-play.

"Meant to Be" from SNZ was my wedding song, but for my money, ya can't beat "Blue Angel." Sweet, hot sounds. And great in concert. Too bad about the sour breakup and all the pursuant lawsuits, eh?

This one is cute, but D-A-M-N-A-T-I-O-N is among the best off this one and not overplayed. "Plenty More" off The Inevitable album is nice too.

Sure - haven't you ever known an ugly hot chick? She's the one that isn't all that physically attractive, but she's just so damn cool that she's hot anyway. I've dated a couple - they make very high quality, low maintenance girlfriends.

SNZ have taken a bunch of very derivative elements and come up with something thoroughly original. And timely, too, if you ask me - right about the time Hot came out, it was just the right thing. Clearly that's born out in the way their popularity skyrocketed at the time.

For my part, I'm totally psyched to hear SNZ on RP any time, and this entire album is excellent!

Derivative adj.-Copied or adapted from others.

Original adj Not derived from others. Fresh and unusual.

and my favorite bar has my favorite martini (what I call the Mugro, of course, made with Grey Goose mandarin vodka and a splash of Gran Marnier, and a slice of orange as garnish, shaken not stirred and ice cold!),

Yeah, I don't get the shaken not stirred thing. They invented the swizzle for a reason - not to chip the ice and water down the drink. So if you like 'em weaker, shake 'em up!
