"Did you hear what I said?" -- a powerful device in this song, somehow. Its repetition makes it.

Loved the little instrumental interlude too.

Very well done, thank you. Also, I happened across "I Can't Breathe" by C.E.O while spamming flapjax's song across facebook pages.

Is it really "anonymous" if its famous people doing it under their real names? Or does one involved person being anonymous suffice?
