A few months back, I was minding my own business (sweating away on the exercise bike), listening to my favourite radio station when I heard something that just blew me away.
A sneering, northern woman being derogatory about the features of anonymous people using unheard of (to me) descriptions.
Then the music kicks in. And from that point on, I knew I was about to hear the greatest song that ever did exist.
As a sucker for female fronted indie / rock / pop / punk music, they were pretty much on to a winner the minute the singer opened the song by opening her mouth. When I heard what came out of her mouth a smile replaced the exercising grimace. And once the music joined the vocals, I couldn’t stop dancing on my bike pedals.
The song I talk about it Don’t Look At Me (I Don’t Like It) by The Lovely Eggs and I encourage you all to search it out. If I can work out how to, I will try and put a link to the YouTube video here.
To give you a flavour of what caught my attention lyrically, here’s some of the lyrics
Look at him with his dog dirt eyes
Look at her with her rabbit’s fur teeth
Look at him with his sausage roll thumb (my favourite!)
If you want to be blown away, cheered up, enthused, invigorated or provoked to think, then search this song / band out.
You’ll like it.
