dld: I Never Meant To Start A War by XenonXylophone dld: I Never Meant To Start A War by XenonXylophone
COME AT ME!

Seriously though, it's an amazing song. I feel like most people have (understandably) focused on the video (www.youtube.com/watch?v=My2FRP…, and the song itself hasn't been discussed as much as I feel it deserves.

I could probably make a short piece elaborating on why I think it's so successful as a breakup song. That would make a nice addendum to this strip.
EDIT: I did do that! It's a video! It's here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uBg0C…

Oh, and it looks like I need to be a bit more careful with my scanning, or at least draw on thicker paper!

I have never listened to this song until seeing your comic today. You sir, have helped me make a wise decision. xD

Actually, I haven't heard the Miley Cyrus song nor seen the video, so I guess this is just some kind of reference to it that flies way above my head. :D

I only watched the video out of curiosity. There were so many people talking about it on my Twitter and Tumblr feeds that I felt the need to see what the fuss was about. And I was surprised to find that I quite enjoyed the song!

It's not my favourite 'Wrecking Ball', though. That would be this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avmoik…

I have surprisingly managed to not hear that song, but I know what people are saying about it. Apparently the song itself IS good and meaningful, but is overshadowed by the music video.

Pretty much. The video is almost great too. The shots where Miley's singing into the camera are packed with emotion, and the wrecking ball smashing through stuff is a perfect metaphor.
It's just...all the sexy stuff they've included as well. I know that's the image she and her management are going for right now, but it just doesn't sit too well with the lyrics or music of the song.

Interestingly, there's a director's cut of the video with just the singing shot, and it works so much better.
