A friend just sent me this—it’s the beginning of I Write Sins Not Tragedies slowed down and layered over The Ballad of Mona Lisa. IDK who did this (if you do let me know), but it’s kind of fucking genius. And a little sad.
i’m sick of hearing female artists write songs that are just like, “oh, we used to date, and things didn’t work out and you dumped me, but you’re with someone new and i hope you guys are really happy together because you were a super nice guy actually and i grew from it and we’re just really great individuals, you know?”
what about a song where the whole gist is, “check out how fucking rich i am now! this shit is craaazy, man! i’m like this celebrity and you’re just the same old guy working at his uncle’s lawn care thing! it’s so weird! hahaha ahahaha.” that’d be the chorus, just maniacal laughter.
