I get the feeling that "Masochist" will be Liberation's "Best of Me" or "Cease Fire". They're all very emotional songs about rocky relationships, with great vocals, nice arrangement, but will never really take off and will be relegated to an album-only existence.

I really like it, though.

It’s literally the best song on the album and the only song that has a huge hit potential.

I don’t understand why people keep saying that sounds like a leftover from lettuce, yes is pop but at its finest

Her emotion on every song tho.

The woman is flawless when it comes to using her instrument. I believe every word that comes out of her mouth even if she sings the same song 1000 times.

Flawless.

easily my most listened track. it goes well with my soft pop inclinations. am adding it to my 80's inspired pop Spotify playlist as we speak.

OT. Masochists haters are ugly and are Trump supporters.

I wish she wasn't belting the first chorus. The vocal is too strong for the music.
This for Deserve as well. It ruined what could have been a great song for me.
I disagree.

I admit I thought the same after my first listen but after digesting the lyrics and meaning of the song, it only makes sense to me that she belts out the chorus, reflecting the pain and torture suffered in the relationship.

I kept waiting for the drums to hit but there ain’t none, I think it lacks a beat in the chorus at least
I’m sure they will add the drums on the tour :love: it will be muuuch better!

This is the stand out track from the album in my opinion. The song is so solid and its almost hypnotizing.

I hated the clip when it first came out a couple months ago, but the song is in my top songs on the album and could become one of Christina's biggest hits if released as a single. It's so catchy.

Masochist really stood out for me, cause its touches a topic that doesn't really goes with the storyline of the album. I understood that the "Masochist" isn't in relationship with the "Sadistic". She keeps coming back for a little more, but she isn't with him. She only goes back when she gets needy, but its a repetitive mode. She knows she will continues with it, he knows she will continues with it. She knows he will continues to use it against her, but it still worth somehow, for this long, to keep coming back for more. Its different than when she talks about conflicts and some kind of sabotage in the relationship on the others songs.

This song is what I call effortless magic. It is SO GOOD! My only issue is that the vocals don't always match the music. I guess that is what they were going for.

Either way, great song!

Masochist is an 80s bop and I will fight anyone that tries to shade it.

This song goes so well with Deserve.
It has such a nice 80's beat, but still sounds modern.
All this! :shook:

The 80's vibe is seriously amazing on this! I can imagine this song in a soundtrack of 80's movie (well, this is clearly modern, crisp-clear producing but that aside), I could see an 80's themed video for this!

And sonically it's so versatile, I love the melody, especially the ascending synths! :shook:

Masochist is one of the best tracks on Liberation. I know a lot of you don’t care for it and have said it’s too basic. While I do think the song is very simple and the structure of the song is a bit weird, what makes this a GREAT pop song for me is the fact that the lyrics are a universal theme that we all can relate to. Her emotion and her vocals also shine strongly especially towards the end. You FEEL her pain. I love this song. :icant:

I can't get my head around this song.

It is one of my favorites because of the lyrics. GOD, THE LYRICS. It's so fucking relate able to my life. and SO many other people I know, too. I sometimes cry when I hear it! And her vocals are so fucking strong and emotional. It's just so amazing.

But I just can't get the 80's bop at the beginning. It throws something off for me. But yet I love it all at the same time. And the fact that it's right before UIWY also throws me off.

HELP. am I crazy??
