Ok so it’s hard to take anything Jack Black says serious and the original version of this song is certainly no exception to the rule. The G.O.V. version on the other hand adds an entirely new realistic dimension to an otherwise satirical song. His verse is about that post break-up boredom one experiences after sharing so much with your significant other.
Ok I’m an asshole, you ain’t never lie. I been lying so let me testify, that I miss you. I can’t find shit to do…”
There’s something so appealing about simple honesty, in my opinion it makes for the best lyrics in music. You can find this type of writing all over Lykee Li’s Youth Novels, Peter Bjorn & John’s Writer’s Block and countless other introspective records. There’s no place for insecurities in love so when I hear an artist express that understanding I get addicted to the feeling. What can you say about a song that speaks itself, not much. Here’s the latest G.O.V., exclusively on EMPT, enjoy. Download.
