Ah, well. I suppose the title of this song is truly appropriate. It’s a little bit hesitant, in that the sound of girls emerges in vocals that kind of linger but don’t punch. There’s an adorable tip toeing quality to the music that comes forth from here, like it creeps up on you and then all of a sudden it’s a banger. We’re talking a dance tune in a not so conventional midnight club, a song to listen to maybe with the ladies or maybe with a bunch of your best friends. Or maybe even while you’re dancing on top of a bar couch seat. This is the song that the sexy DJ has decided to put on next. So you’re waving your denim jacket in the air with one hand, simultaneously holding a whiskey ginger, while snapchatting pics/vids of yourself to potential lovers, exes, friends, enemies, whatever. You’re smiling at another life lover who has decided to join you on the pedestal. A bouncer comes up to you and tells you that it’s time to get down, they’re doing it in that hush hush kinda way where the music is really loud and their voice isn’t really speaking so much as their body language is, as if their size could talk. You blow them a kiss, maybe even attempt to kiss them on the cheek, seeing as your red lipstick is just begging to be smeared. You don’t even attempt to remember his name, but your unaware of the charm that you’ve somehow managed to give off. He leaves you alone after you eventually kiss his clean shaven bald head. Your hair is a mass of volume and thank god for some great hair spray and teasing, it’s still large and in charge tonight. Your eyes close. You imagine a warm place with tan people and crystal blue waves. That’s where your mind goes when you’re listening to this song, despite the fact that you’re in quite a happy place, physically.
The realness is that this song embodies our midnight dance love affair with ourselves. All of us, not just girls. It’s that point in the evening where you could be home, or potentially eating a burger with a kind hearted semi-stranger with smiling eyes, but instead, you’ve prevailed for some solo you time within the confines of a not so solo setting. You’re still participating, but it’s mostly for you.
I love me some French Horn Rebellion any day. This remix provides personality and character, while still creating a unique connection with anyone who listens to it. Play this song with that in mind.
