    So I never post on forums much, but I think I may start a bit more and I will start with this. I enjoying "Rick Rolling" people as much as anyone else, but I am amazed to see Rick Astley making the comeback of a lifetime with this song called "Lights Out." It has a great vibe that reminds me of Coldplay. I cannot get enough of it!

    I liked his catchy pop tunes from back in the 80's... I actually still do, they're somewhat cult classics icon_smile.gif

    His hand movements when he on top of the building are really bothering me for some reason. It looks...forced?!

    Well, it does look like he is directing fighter jets off of an air craft carrier, but aside from that, he sounds fantastic and is still cute as hell icon_smile.gif

    Not bad! I used to have a big crush on him too... icon_lol.gif Thought he was cute as hell... 25 years ago... definitely older looking, but still has a baby face... Let's hope he has a great second career, especially in these times... icon_wink.gif

    Good ole Rick from Liverpool, this song is okay although I get the forced hands thing going on does become distracting to the music.

    I prefer Ronan Keating. Hopefully Rick makes some money this time, I seem to remember he was a contract singer and his producer/label made all the cash last time around.

    Get your name on the writing credits Rick, that's where cash is!

    Still has a great voice. good song......but I definitely see a DJ turning it into a dance remix and hearing it a club soon. Not sure that is always a good thing. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well, bless his heart. Good to see him again.

    Oh, and yes his arm gestures are a little choppy and forced, BUT they can't be any worse than his arm twirls and reaches in this:

    Now that I look at the weird hang movements he is making, It reminded me so much of this scene from Talladega Nights! icon_biggrin.gif

    Better than I remembered him and he looks great... still rather a boring song.
