Bat For Lashes – What’s a Girl To Do?

These guys sampled the drums from “Be My Baby,” one of my favorite 60’s songs performed by The Shangri-Las and produced by one of my musical heroes, the pop mastermind Phil Spector. At face value, this song is about the thrill being gone, the end, going from liking someone to indifference. The callous overtone may turn some off but being a romantic realist I find this stage of a relationship just as interesting as actually being in love. Hey, if you can’t find the good in the “bad,” well then your just not that creative ; )

This video is great, it’s spooky, creepy, disturbing yet very fitting. Having grown up BMXing I was a huge fan of the bike gang doing ollie’s and flatland tricks while this girl is pouring her heart out about falling out of love. I had to turn off the video to actually listen to the lyrics but I you probably won’t have that problem. Cold as ice. Enjoy.

We walked arm in arm
But I didn’t feel his her touch
A desire I’d first tried to hide,
That tingling inside was gone
And when he she asked me:
‘do you still love me?’
I had to look away
I didn’t want to tell him her
That my heart grows colder with each day.”
