5.0 out of 5 stars To Truly Connect With 30 Jan 2001
By A Duke Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" is one of my favourite songs of all time. I'm not religious, I'm not even a Christian - but this song can be connected with on any level you like. It's very simple (Gospel Choir, piano chords, gorgeous beat) but extremely effective. The lyrics follow the same line of simplicity, in fact there's only really three lines ("why does my heart feel so bad? / Why does my soul feel so bad? /These open doors, These open doors...")
It's somehow uplifting, and I never get sick of hearing it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of weak. 4 April 2001
By Daniel Cerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This single re-releases the radio edit of "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?", along with a new hip-hoppy take on "Honey", and a previously-available B-side. The whole CD clocks in at less than ten and a half minutes.
"Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" is truly a good song. Built around vocal samples from an old recording by the Shining Light Gospel Choir, it is a great example of the richly harmonious bluesy style that permeates Moby's album _Play_. WDMHFSB was already released as a single one year earlier, complete with good remixes and better B-sides. Given Moby's staggering backcatalogue of unreleased tunes (to say nothing of his environmental stance), this redundancy seems inexplicably needless.
The second song is amusing. "Honey" is overlaid with a simple drum machine beat by Fafu and silly vocals by Kelis. After quoting lyrics from "Bodyrock", Kelis admonishes listeners to get on the dance floor and acknowledge that Moby is "the disco king". The resulting song is worthless, yet fun enough to break out at a party or two. This tongue-in-cheek music is reminiscent of Moby's goofy self-effacing antics with Gwen Stefani in the "South Side" video.
"Flower" is down-tempo and earthy, similar in style to the album version of "Honey", but slower. It's a good track that many people will recognize from the opening credits of the 2000 movie _Gone In 60 Seconds_. Previously available on the motion picture soundtrack, "Flower" also appears on the much-sought-after _Play: The B-Sides_ limited edition 2CD box set. As with some other Moby songs based on Alan Lomax recordings, its exact lyrics will likely be a subject for perpetual debate among fans. I'm a bit disappointed that the hand clapping introduction (present in the movie) was removed for the CD releases.
Overall, I see this CD single as somewhat of a lame gimmick, lacking in good new content. A different song should have been released instead, with new B-sides and/or remixes. "Machete", "The Sky Is Broken", "Find My Baby", "Everloving", "Rushing", and "If Things Were Perfect" all come to mind. The Kelis collaboration I don't mind so much, but I believe that Moby and Mute Records could have offered better value for the money spent on this CD. Taken alone, however, this single is fairly decent, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get ahold of "Flower".
4.0 out of 5 stars Great New Mix and Great B-Side 25 Nov 2000
By Anthony Stokes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Track 1 is the version of Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad which is already available on the 'Play' album and the previous singles. It's a cross between gospel-sounding soul-searching and slower dance hit, as odd as that sounds. A good track on it's own merit, but something new would be nice for the fans who might already have this song.
Track 2 is the new version of Honey, featuring Keils and remixed by Fafu. The version on disc #1 is a shorter radio-friendly 3 minute track (a longer version appears on disc 2). The original song had sort of a gospel-meets-funk with drum programming, but the Kelis vocals give a new R&B twist to the song, breathing new life in this track.
Track 3 is the B-Side "Flower." This song has a definite gospel/funk/dance feel to it, much like the original Honey or Natural Blues tracks on the 'Play' album. This b-side is among my favorites.
A must-have for the Moby fan and a highly-recommended introduction to Moby's music.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth it 18 April 2008
By Said Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got this wanting to hear the song 'Princess', as I don't believe it is on any other releases. The song, clocking in at over 8 min, is an utter waste of said amount of time. I thought it would be a nice ambient track, but it's an over-rated Paul Oakenfold rip-off.

Yeah, you know, Oakenfold, the techno 'musician' that makes money just for making crap that a 10-year old can make with the same equipment. I remember hearing Oakenfold's 'remix' of 'Natural Blues'; it sounded like he had this 8 min piece of techno garbage lying around, which he put a few vocal samples on and called it a remix. Well, that's pretty much what 'Princess' is, very disappointing to see Moby stoop so low; I take it he must've been bored one evening.

The track 'Flying Foxes' can be found on the 'Play B-Sides' album so that would be a much better buy. The title song is an edit, which doesn't work well, as this song needs more time to pull you in.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great 27 July 2004
By M. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I listened to the 'Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?' remixes, and i was very dissapointed, as in the south in america, this is classified as soul music, and it relates to me very much, and people in other countries or even parts of this county don't understand the type of music that this song introduces, so they change it to somthing they know.

So i decided to get this single.

Track one is one of my favourite tracks off 'play', and i bought this single hoping to get the original version. alas, like the 'natural blues' single, it has been edited by about 40 seconds, removing some of the best parts of the song. i love this song, and removing any of it seems like removing the book of genesis from the torah, or removing the gospels from the new testament.

Track 2 is a beautiful, moving track that has the same feel as the first one does, but in an entirely different way. it has to be my favourite b side from play.

Track 3 seems out of place at first for this cd, but in a way, it seems just right. It balances out the feelings given in the first two tracks, and leaves you entirely satisfied. I got every cent's worth for this cd.
