Won't you save a place for this?
Facing all there is to miss
A change of heart
A change of pain

It was going wrong
For the longest time
I'd rather die than feel this pain


What to do, with old dreams?
To feel a new kind of pain
As the sun pulls behind the sky
I'd rather die than feel this pain

Give up the world give up my life
Give up the pain give up the right
Give up the love give up the shade
Give up the blame for all the hurts we made

Give up the sun give up the night
Give up the fear give up the fight
Give up the guilt for all the ways we strayed
Give up the pain for all the hurts we made

Isn't a 1/2 beat off the downbeat?
 

Thanks for getting what I was saying.  ;)

You're assuming the drumbeat is off, and the artist/producer/label released the song anyway?

Perhaps what you're hearing is the "backbeat" drum stroke.  That's common in a lot of blues and some rock music.  For example, in 4/4 time (1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4)  emphasis is usually place on beats 1 and 3; but it does have to be.

If you count "ands" (1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and-1-and-2-and-3-and 4) you can more easily hear the backbeat.

By the way, consistently hitting the backbeat is difficult, especially when a song's tempo is as fast as this one is.
 
Saying it was "off" was actually a compliment.  I completely GET that it is difficult, that is why it is so impressive.  To say it is "off" is not a negative comment.  Thanks for spelling out more clearly to folks what my point was.  :)  PEACE!
Loving this loud in my headphones.  It's not helping me with the excel spreadsheet though....
Somebody call the wambulance -- Moby's pissin' and moanin' ... again

I love intelligent replies. I just learned something.
Dude, did you just respond snarkily to your own previous comment? Either way, let go of the hangups, man, crank up the RP and poop loudly.

Just hit the mute button. First time ever. I'm inspired to go have a crap, in silence.
Oh putain quelle merde !
I think that if one very sad day Moby and Manu Chao expulse a tune together, it will be the end of the World. Those "artists" should be locked in jail for the rest of their days so our planet can sound a better way.

I enjoyed this tune. Went and checked my phone to see who it was, and I was certainly surprised it was Moby. Has an 80s feel to it, it’s a decent driving diddy.
Is it me or is moby boring

New and Moby?
8 for now, long live RP! 

*EDIT* My 2nd listening of this track (on headphones this time) and I'm only at a 7 now.  Sorry Richard Melville (Moby, ha!) Hall, but your new tune is getting downgraded to a 7 by me...you still get props for inventing your own choir; that's crazy and cool.

*2ND EDIT* I'm double-downgrading to a 5 now.  Something jarring about this track and how it "fits" into the regular Awesome RP mix. 
 
*3rd Edit*
This track hits me differently each time you spin it BillG.  Today, home from the desk job, starting to do yard work and listening (with the neighbors hehehe) on the BT speaker, following the Massive Attack cut, and preceding BillG's playlist-ending "station identification" (still got some FM in ya!) whatchamacallit-thingamajig, I'll go +1 to the 6 rating I skipped before.

Not hearing it on headphones helped a bit. And for sure, being home, in the sun, and legally attitude-adjusted, that helped too.

And I'm still laughing about Richard Melville Hall choosing Moby as his stage name.  Good one, Moby Dick!

Long Live RP!!
A bit thumpy.
This after the Vitamin C Quartet, Everloving, off the album, Tribute to Moby Album = Brilliant!
Bill, 62% of those that have rated this song have rated it 7 or higher. You're not in the minority. 
{#Music}
The first several seconds I thought it was an old Wall of Voodoo track...
This just came on after a magnificent Sonny Landreth tune and all the hair on the back of my neck went into spasm.....so I came over to the computer to express myself, and started reading the comments below and suddenly realized that I have puked about this tune half a dozen times already.........   at least I'm consistent ~ this sucks.
Bill, thank you for introducing me to this album and song. I listen to RP for my own entertainment and to find new music to share with my ecstatic dance tribe. I played this one last week and it got the room moving wildly. Complete success!

Is your apparent dislike of Jack White actually relevant to this song?

'Bill' who?


That Bill
I'm gonna buck the comment trend by saying I think this song isn't bad...not awesome, but quite ok...it has a slight Sisters of Mercy flavor, to me... I really don't love a lot of Moby's stuff, but I definitely appreciate his willingness to try different stuff, expand his range, etc. He's creative, even if not everyone's taste, including my own sometimes...
'Bill' who?

How magnanimous of you.

If Bill feels the need to play to any part of the audience, it's probably to the majority that's rated this 6.something, rather than just those who've commented negatively.  Fortunately, it seems (to me anyway) that Bill feels no such need, and plays what he likes.  Thankfully.

SO, Bill - I don't see any positive comments at all. I thought maybe I was alone out there, but seems like consensus is that this is crap.  I know you read these comments, you make remarks about them sometimes.  Are you just poking us in the eye with a stick or is there some contrarian editorial reason you feel compelled to keep playing it?

crappy is an understatement
How can the person who gave us Play also produce this dross?
Well, I clearly understand that intolerance is not a virtue. But...

...but...

...but...

...this is sooooooooooooooo crappy!!!
Each beat of this "thing" sounds like a PSD appeal!
Upbeat Moby, no better upbeat.  Man does not live by porcelain alone.
Wow it was so bad the first time I heard it a month ago it prompted me to write my first comment..... it got worse!  Drew me to comment again! 

This cacophony is horrible!

I was thinking Covenant (United States of Mind/Northern Light sort of sound).

Even Deadmaus wasn't this bad........ but hope it also gets out of RP rotation soon.

listenin to this pale, pale synthesized riff makes me yearn for BLACK SABBATH
Boy, he's angry!
An unusually jarring transition (for RP) from the smoothness of Jonathan Wilson - Desert Raven. OUCH! I thought an output valve had blown. {#Cheesygrin}

likewise
I will pass this one
new music from Moby....my ears are happy
Definitely works for me...
Deadmau5 and then, "theess"... 
From an big 7 to a deserved 2.
IMHO, Moby is SO overrated!!!
For a liker of both 'Porcelain' and 'Extreme Ways' this satisfies!

More. Moby that's a bit un-Moby, but really catchy. 
He seems to like cover photos of him underwater.
