Add to the fact, (Re: flavor flav comment). It sounds like Stevie is holding her nose or has a nose plug on her nose in the intro. How did anyone not hear how horrible that sounds?
I love that intro. Itís so weird. It simulates an isolation chamber, which reinforces the angst of the opening lines of the lyric. She sounds trapped in that spaceóand thatís part of the point.

I can see why someone would hate the opening of the song, but I think that discomfort or resistance is part of the experience of the lyric.

When I first heard it, I laughed out loud. It was so absurd and disturbing and smart at the same time.
