    Probably up there with Bury A Friend as her best one.

    I have to say I'm kind of with you, I really haven't quite got her yet, but this is interesting and good on her for getting success with someone pretty different from what's mainstream right now.

    I like how voodoo it is. Reminds me of an edgier Taylor Swift.

    I love how this takes inspiration from so many genres. Reminds of the how eclectic British pop could be in the 2000s.

    Does this remind anyone else of Garbage's Push It? I get mad similar vibes whenever I hear it.

    As always with Eilish's songs, it's got me thinking "Good ideas actually, but could've been executed better." Instead of that Beyonce's Sorry-esque drop towards the end, she could've included a 3rd verse followed by another chorus. I like that this song, for once, is a bit more uptempo, and the video (despite the knee bruises and her bleeding nose) is actually a bit funny and shows her laughing instead of it full of teenage drama and horror. Due to the many ideas involved during the 3:14-minutes-song, it comes across as rushed and the transitions are a bit sloppy (e.g. when she sings 'I'm the bad guy - duh!"). If she tried to create less edgy songs and instead had them produced to become more cohesive, the whole thing could actually work. 7/10

    Same! This song gives me so much fire, I've been listening to this each time I walk to work and it makes me feel invincible! Anyone else feeling similar effects with Billie's music? For all we know she could be curing anxiety around the world with her music.

    This is such a cool song, and the video is super awesome. I cannot believe she is only in her teens!!

    This is top 10 since its debut I believe. But it is surprising because all her hits so far seemed to be stream based, and mostly driven by her huge fan base, but her appeal has gone global and radio is probably pushing this song as well.

    This song made me warm up to her, at least a little bit. Of all the whole sedated and sleepy sounding vocalists in the Spotify era, she seems to be the one who's destined to be bigger than those in her genre.

    Now, after 6 weeks, I can honestly say that it really grew on me, which is why I raised the rating in my first post from 6/10 to 7/10. For more points, an additional minute would've been great - I'm still not fully feeling the transition from the last chorus to the outro...

    But yes, it happens to be one of the best songs of the year so far.

    If goofy was a sound it would be this. Well, at least my understanding of what goofy is.

    Both video and song are at least 8/10.
    be kind to every kind (also the unkind kind!!!!! )

    Musically; Britney circa mid 00s wasn't so different from the more poppy side of Billie Eilish, so yes, I can see why the song appeals to Britney ;) .

    This is a win purely based on the volume of brilliant spoofs it had produced

    I hate the breakdown in this song but I remember having to replay the song immediately. Definitely one of the best songs out right now
