EMPT Classics: Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot

I am sure everyone is winding down from an incredible Thanksgiving, I know I am.  I chose this classic because when you’re with all your family and friends giving thanks, whatever anger and tough act you have been putting on lately seems to melt away.  You reach out to someone special regardless of the situation and regardless of whether or not they will reach out too you, it’s about letting the guard down and remembering the good times, not dwelling on the bad.

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 cliche but most of the worlds wisdom inevitably is. Enough ranting, here a fantastic song and video by Marina & The Diamonds, enjoy.
