Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot

This song is about your classic amateur league lovers, you know, the ones so stuck in their insecurities and limitations that they feel the need to assume a particular style or attitude when it comes to love affairs. I’ve always found it amusing when my girlfriends, the kind and loving P.Y.T.’s they are, try to switch up on me and act tuff instead of just communicating their honest emotions…

You been acting awful tuff lately, smoking a lot of cigarettes lately.
But inside, your just a little baby.
It’s ok to say you gotta weak spot, you don’t alway have to be on top.
Better to be hated, then loved, loved, loved for what your not.”

While the posing may seem necessary and even get you what you want at the time, your partner will never really know who you are and before you know it another relationship gone, another story is told…

It ain’t nothing really, ayo dun spark the philly…” – Mobb Deep (Shook One’s Part 2)

I’m sure all this sounds cliché but most of the worlds wisdom inevitably is. Enough ranting, here a fantastic song and video by Marina & The Diamonds, enjoy.

The Black Lips – Starting Over

The intro to this song is noticeably similar to one of my favorite MGMT songs, Time To Pretend. However, that’s where the similarities end and an amazing song about rejuvenating begins. In martial arts there is a fighting style known as Druken Style. Dating back to the Sung Dynasty it is a style in which the fighter mimics the rolling, unpredictable motion of a drunken man to deceive his opponent into thinking he is incapacitated by a drunken stupor. The way lead singer Cole Alexander sings in Starting Over would be the musical equivalent of Drunken Style. His performance offers feelings of hope and sadness as he wabbles through the track anthematically claiming a new beginning, very cool. I think I went through my starting over phase about a month ago but I still get hyped up by the song. Flower Punk at it’s best, enjoy.
