Some thoughts I had while listening to this song…
- "I washed your dishes, but shit in your bathroom" is an odd line. I'm not quite sure what that is supposed to mean. Is it a metaphor for something? And if so, a metaphor for what? Is it meant to imply that she is domesticated, because she does the dishes and takes number two's in the appropriate location?
- The chorus is great. Simple, but great. A perfect mantra for any hungover morning.
- This song would make for a very great Ryan Adams cover. Something about it just feels like it would sound perfect being performed by him.
- I wonder if the vampire theme of the video was inspired by her last name. ‘Van Etten’ is very vampire-ish after all.
I guess my last though would be that it's probably my favourite track off the new album. And if you'd like to hear this song sandwiched in between some other songs, you should check out the latest episode of the Mix Tape Radio show, as you will find just that.
