Song of the Week is a weekly meme of some of my current favourite songs or songs that I can’t get out of my head. Leave your favourite songs and I’ll be sure to check them out.
Mal Blum writes often self-referential, first-person narratives, sets them to music containing elements from anti-folk, punk or folk genres and tours nationally, usually alone in a little car, but sometimes with a band or another songwriter for company.
With a song that’s so sad yet so relatable it’s crazy that I haven’t heard of this girl before. The song, albeit whiny really gets to you. Why? because her lyrics and the images they create are extremely vivid and smooth that you feel like the one watching the events unfold. It’s a long song but every time it comes on, I don’t have the heart to stop it when I reach my lectures. I just let it play until the crying is over.
We’re not friends
Friends don’t do the things we did
And the ones you’ve done since then makes think we’ve never been
When is this night gonna end?
Are you lying in her bed?
All these questions hit my head
Hey where’s the whiskey at again
You were discombobulated
When you showed up at my door
Leaving glitter on my floor
But I don’t like you anymore
Listen to the song here.
Lyrics are here.
