The key change doesn't really sound earned you know?
That whole argument is hilarious. It's like saying I can't enjoy listening to Britney repeatedly sing about how much she wants a good shagging because I'm still a virgin. I feel like the whole point to a lot of music is escapism.
I can't enjoy LoveGame because I'm not a bottom ":(" Won't they think of the tops!?
^I agree with the above arguments, but I feel like I understand the emotion that makes people feel negative about a track when the relatability is not there for them, especially when it's an artist they previously connected with. The attitude ultimately doesn't make sense and it limits artistic agency, but I could definitely see somebody who related deeply to Melodrama having a bit of a "what the fuck is this shit?" moment.
Still, there's so much music out there that one can relate to that there's no reason why one artist should be boxed in.
I can’t relate to a lot of Melodrama. I’ve never waited for a green light (gays don’t drive!!!), never been sober, never made dynamite at home, never been to the Louvre. Such a shame cause it sounds like a really great album.
Melodrama is an interesting album for me in that I don't relate to a lot of the specific experiences but I do relate quite a bit to the emotions behind them. That's not really happening with Solar Power but I can still appreciate it as a bit of witty earcandy.
Lorde: *releases the most pleasant, inoffensive song of her career*
What key change lol
Me making this goddamn crop circle for her
Call me basic but the song does hit differently when the sun is burning outside.
I hate the summer. Can't stand the hot.
(Not even joking. It's so fucking hot and my apartment pool is filled with screaming kids all day errrrday.)
You have an apartment POOL?
Haha yes. The apartment complex does. I hope it gets less busy soon because I want to drop my cellular device in the water.
My book arrived today and this is printed on the inside back cover:
Anyway…this has debuted at no 17 in the U.K., her second highest charting single after Royals..
This is good, but also an absolute crime.
I think Lorde's pretty much the definition of an album artist (which is fine) so that's a really good result.
