How Fucking Romantic

How Fucking Romantic from dianale on 8tracks.

Love you obviously, like you really care.
Even though you treat me like a dancing bear.
Toss your bear a gold fish as it cycles by.
Don't forget to feed your bear or it'll die.

waiting around to die

One of the best songs I heard all last year. The wind is real, ya'll.

chiquitita, you and i know

I’ve made all my irl friends watch this video because I think, without any irony whatsoever, it may be the best song/video ever made. Like all ABBA songs, “Chiquitita” is exuberantly tragic, a celebration of sadness, a sadness delivered expressly through Agnetha Fältskog’s facial expressions and Benny Andersson’s piano solo. The world is terribly sad, guys, but we’re going to play music next to a giant snowman anyway. You might think they’re silly, but they are know what they’re doing.

Tamara Lindeman (Weather Station) usually sings about yarrow, mint, and amaranth: her songs are flower-pressings, not pastoral, but fierce pasture. "March" is different; there isn't hand clapping, there's foot stomping, the sound of rusty doors swinging back and forth in a storm, pots and pans clinging, wire fraying, and most of all Lindeman's low, measured voice, patient and possessed.
