Nobody's Gonna Love You - Cee-Lo Green (Paul Epworth remix): I know I've shared this video before (way back in August 2010) but both the song and the video is sublime and I'm revisiting it because I can. There is something about this song that makes me feel incredibly anxious and upset, but it's probably just the video. Or maybe it's the repeating line, "No one. No one's gonna love you more than I do." which is just a really sobering and depressing lyric.
You Know What - N.E.R.D.: Yeah, I don't know. These are just three songs I've been listening to a lot lately.
Escape - Rupert Holmes: I can't decide if the lyrics are upsetting or not. It's about a man who has grown tired of his wife ("I was tired of my lady / we'd been together too long / like a worn out recording / of a favourite song"), replies to a personal ad, goes to a bar to meet stranger with the intention of "planning his escape" only to find out the "stranger" from the personal ad was in fact, his wife. He then realises they have more in common than he previously knew ("I never knew / that you liked pina coladas / and getting caught in the rain"), and they "plan their escape" together. Most people I've discussed this with say that it's ultimately a happy song because the marriage is saved by a renewed interest in each other. BUT THEY WERE UNHAPPY IN THE FIRST PLACE and 75% of the song was the husband going on about having full intention to cheat on his wife. Either way this is a solid song and I find myself singing it quietly to myself on public transport, which is never a good idea. Outfit post tomorrow.
