And other songwriting quandaries, discussed by the BBC.
must all have a mental age of 5
although it's more of a Netflix+Spotify model, for both music and films/TV.
It's new(ish) so this is a way you generate clicks now, I guess.
I reckon the only survey they did was of which artists would be the optimum SEO for their target demographic
can't believe the BBC published this
"Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad"
that is a fantastic line!
It's obvious what it means
It's fucking weird in a song about someone you just met, though. The rest of the song seems pretty casual and flirty, so that clanging in halfway throughout the chorus, especially combined with 'I hope you know that' is really creepy.
"wow I fancy you so much" sort of feeling you can get from someone.
you obviously haven't examined carly rae's lyrics at all!!!!
Rae's breakthrough hit 'call me maybe' glides effortlessly between past and present, recounting a pivotal moment in her life. The song is a story of carly rae remembering the time she took those first brave steps to approach a man she cares deeply about.
'Hey, I just met you,
And this is crazy,
But here's my number,
So call me, maybe!'
are delivered by a half remembered carly from the past - maybe a year ago, maybe two, maybe twenty years ago, who knows (there is little in the song to detail the date of the first encounter, all we really know is that it is some time after the invention of the telephone and the popularity of wearing jeans), whereas the lines
'Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad'
are delivered by a present, or possibly future version of carly, maybe an aged and infirm carly, looking back on a happier time in her life, a time when the future was exciting and new, a time when
'all the other boys,
Try to chase me,'
rather than "Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad" being creepy, it's a poignant and moving sentiment about the human need for companionship
before telling me how deeply I've studied CRJ lyrics (CRJ is what her proper fans call her btw - tip for if you try and blag again in the future).
CRJ has stated literally thousands of times that the song takes place in a SPECIFIC TIME AND PLACE and there is no time traveling or anything because she's a Christian.
i've reported you to the fanclub president for saying that carly is creepy
guess i won't see you at the next meet up!
Club Tropicana, drinks are free, fun and sunshine, there's enough for everyone, all that's missing is the sea."
Did these people not do geography at school?
"It's true that song lyrics are sometimes as crazy as a box of frogs"
wow, that's pretty crazy
