Marina And The Diamonds & Charli XCX – Just Desserts

At this very moment on NYC there is thunder, lightening, and rain pouring down in buckets.  And the strange creature that I am loves this kind of weather, my mind feeds off of it.  It’s like right after you have just had the most amazing orgasm of your life and your body has electricity running through it, in short it’s a rush, it’s dangerous and beautiful all at the same time.  I listened to this yesterday and have heard this track by Marina and Charli XCX before, but was a bit hesitant to post it.  One because it couldn’t speak more truth to my life and two because I wear my heart on my sleeve and have questioned whether this is a good idea or not.  But what I have realized  recently is that I don’t care what other people think, I pretty much haven’t my whole life, but I am human and sometimes for a moment we can lose track of the greatness we have in us, I bounce back quickly and that is something I am grateful for, and I remember how valuable my emotions and my passions are.  I speak honesty, I breath truth as though if I didn’t I would die.  Sometimes we live in fears and we can either take those fears and let them drive us or we can let them weaken us..I choose driving forward!

This is something I appreciate so much about Marina’s music, her lyrics are so deep and yet her voice and her delivery of the words have so much strength and power that it reminds me at least, that weakness just doesn’t have to exist.  It takes a certain type of person and a certain passion and vulnerability to deliver a song like this the way Marina and Charli do.  As well the production which couldn’t have been more spot on in making this one dark, but uplifting with the electro pop, bitter sweet subtleties.  You cannot fake these types of words, emotions and truth, so for that I applaud this song and Marina and Charli, two dark beautiful women exuding a certain type of rare power. All the words must be seen, so here you go:

Your heart breaks hard…

Charli XCX – You (Ha Ha Ha) (Goldroom Remix)

CHARLI-XCX1

When things are falling apart there’s nothing better than to find yourself with a catchy hook. And if you listen to the original, Charli XCX samples Gold Panda’s You — and that my friends, is as catchy as it gets.

Josh has done it again, a nu disco remix that stays true to the meaning behind the lyrics yet injects the original with a bassline with its own personality and the usual Goldroom tune flavour. The bridge and its synth chord progression with the kicks and snares is something that gives the remix some breath of fresh air, a balearic air of sorts — for moments at least. We await the official release of this remix that’s forthcoming on Asylum Records on February 10, until then find a promo copy after the jump. Enjoy your afternoon with this one.
