Well, hell, it’s been like a million years since I did one of these, SO.
Music meme #9: A song that breaks your heart.
I don’t understand. Are other people just really dramatic? Do they feel these things unequivocally? AM I A TERMINATOR? (I love how every single entry in this meme has started with me going THIS QUESTION IS BULLSHIT. And yet I continue.)
Anyway, I went with Why Don’t You Call Me by James Blake, because it is the self-loathingest song I could think of. (If you’re prone to that, maybe don’t listen to it.) The lyrics are pretty much just why don’t you call me what we both know I am? over and over again, but…he has a real way of repeating words in new ways until they get into your skin.
I bet you think you hate autotune. Give it a shot anyway. This, my friends, is autotune in the service of art.
