Despite being used recently in some shitty song, this is still one of my favorite Imogen Heap songs.

The lyrics are wide open for interpretation

where are we?
what the hell is going on?
the dust has only just begun to form
crop circles in the carpet
sinking feeling

spin me round again
and rub my eyes,
this can’t be happening
when busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads heavy

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines
all those years
they were here first

oily marks appear on walls
where pleasure moments hung before the takeover,
the sweeping insensitivity of this still life

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines (oh, you won’t catch me around here)
blood and tears (hearts)
they were here first

Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say?
Mmmm that it’s just what we need
you decided this
whatcha say?
Mmmm what did she say?

ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
speak no feeling no I don’t believe you
you don’t care a bit,
you don’t care a bit

(hide and seek)
ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs

(hide and seek)
speak no feeling no i don’t believe you
you don’t care a bit,
you don’t care a (you don’t care a) bit

(hide and seek)
oh no, you don’t care a bit
oh no, you don’t care a bit

(hide and seek)
oh no, you don’t care a bit
you don’t care a bit
you don’t care a bit

Fiona Apple - To Your Love

trying to catch up on this week’s playlist.

Pharcyde - Passing me by

My Mental DJ was feeling reminiscent.

4 non-blondes - What’s up

The shit she comes up with while I’m doing algebra homework is astounding. BTW, looking back at the artists of the early 90s is just a massive reminder that I was born 10 years too fucking late to really appreciate the culture and music. 11 year olds don’t get it the way 21 year olds would.

She Wants Revenge - Tear You Apart

Some days, I have no idea what my Mental DJ is thinking when she lines up tracks to play. Not at all sure where this one fits with the other two.

Skin - Trashed

I swear I’m not feeling emo or broken hearted or anything today.

7 notes

One of her many songs that I’ve always loved.

Janet Jackson feat Q-Tip - Got til it’s gone

I’d be remiss if I didn’t post this one on strength of the last one. Hell this is how I found out about Big Yellow Taxi to begin with. My family was not big on Joni.

Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi

No idea why I started singing this at work last night.
