The 188.8.131.52’s - I’m Blue
I’m Blue ue ue
doo be doo be doo be doo
Thought this tumblog needed a little kick.
4 Non Blondes - What’s Up
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
No doubt their best song.
Sleater-Kinney - ‘Night Light’
I wanted to post ‘A Real Man’, from their self-titled 1995 album, but I only have it in .mp4. So instead of scuzzy lo-fi man-hating Early Days Sleater-Kinney, here’s some hard-rocking, expansive, reaching-their-full-potential-as-musicians Final Album Sleater-Kinney instead. It’s not a bad trade.
The Distillers - Young Girl
We were young girls in a small world
I’m on your doorstep, man
Ringing your bell again Ringing your bell again
I’m sorry Gerti Rouge all that you’re through
Looking for love that never stabbed your heart
And probably never will
It’s a lie when you are telling the truth
It’s the truth when you are telling a lie
Spread your legs then get down on your knees
And pray it never happens again
Well here I am on your doorstep again
I let the winds of time pass through my life
Maybe there’s an end
Who the fuck protects you?
Who the fuck is going to resurrect you?
It’s a sorrowed truth the truth is not a lie
Come on up baby
Don’t go and burn in the fire’
I heard this was about her childhood best friend who was molested and abused.
As upbeat and raucous as this tune is, and many other songs that include Gerti Rouge, I sometimes find myself tearing up.
