You're So Dark by the Arctic Monkeys


Arctic Monkeys - You're So Dark (Official Audio) von domino

Since I saw them live last month I am pretty much hardcore fangirling the Arctic Monkeys, so you can imagine how excited I was when this song came out. It is the B-side for their new single 'One for the Road' and I fucking love it. The references are great, and I love the images that this song brings to mind (no naughtiness here, I swear). I always try to picture the woman or girl he sings about and I love what my mind creates when I do that, it is like a small short film about her really, and about him, admiring her from afar, hiding in the shadows and keeping his own imagination busy. In my mind I always see that whole thing in black and white, god knows why, but it really suits the song. God, I wish I could share what I imagine better, but science is not ready for that yet I suppose.

"And you're so mysterious
Got that obsession with death
I saw you driving your Prius
And even that was Munster Koach-esque
You watch Italian horror and you listen to the scores
Leather-clad and spiked collar
I want you down on all fours
'Cause you're so dark, babe
But I want you hard

You're so dark, babe
I know you're nothing like mine
'Cause she's walking on sunshine
And your love would tear us apart
And I know I'm not your type
'Cause I don't shun the daylight
But baby I'm willing to start"

Infallible by Pearl Jam
















I bought Pearl Jams new album 'Lightning Bolt' today and I love it, I listen to it all the time. Especially this song, I don't know, it just stands out to me from all the songs on the album, it's such a masterpiece.
And there are great news: they are coming to Europe again, and I will go and see them in Berlin, tickets will be available from next friday 10 am, and guess who will buy one then, haha. But I am still looking for someone to accompany be, because none of my friends likes Pearl Jam (or at least not enough to spend 75 bucks on a concertticket) (yup expensive, but they are so worth it!). I am already so excited, I almost hyperventilated when I found out about the show. If any of you are planning to go too, just leave me a comment or message me on last.fm or anything, I'd love to not go alone.

"Wanna third second chance
Put your faith in big hands
Pay no more than a glance

All good things come to an end
This could be good as it gets
How's the view from the fence?

You think we been here before
You are mistaken
Of everything that's possible
In the hearts and minds of men

When progress could be plausible
In reverse we curse ourselves
By thinking we're infallible
We are tempting fate instead"

Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song) by Oscar Isaac and Marcus Mumford
















Ever since I've seen the movie Inside Llewyn Davis, which I love so much that I don't have words for it, I listen to the soundtrack and especially to this song. It is just so beautiful and I love love love how Oscar Isaacs and Marcus Mumfords voice harmonize with each other. Somebody should go and have them make an album together, please.

"If I had wings like Noah's dove
I'd fly the river to the one I love
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well"

Beautiful Girl by William Fitzsimmons


It's no secret that I love William Fitzsimmons and that I am inexplicably attracted to his beard (isn't everyone?). So when I heard that he would play shows in Germany again, I did not hesitate one second and bought a ticket, and I don't regret it. I will actually go and see him again, when he comes back in february and I am already excited about it. And I am also very excited for his new album, 'Lions', which will come out next year. It's weird but I kind of love it already, not only because I've heard some of the songs live at the concert, but because of the title. It sounds so strong and good and proud, haha I really can't explain it.
Anyways, Beautiful Girl is one of my favorite songs by him and when he played it live I almost cried a bit because it was so beautiful and heartbreaking and overwhelming.
Actually, this song has helped me get on with my life and my mental health so much, I could never express how thankful I am for it. This is why I get so emotional about it mostly, because I makes me remember old times, when I was doing terrible and how much has changed since  then and how much better I am now and how good life is actually, even though I have my bad days, where I just want to jump off every bridge that I cross, but those days have become quite rare. I can eat normal, I do not throw up after eating anymore, I can accept my body, I do not have panic attacks anymore, I do not harm myself anymore, even though I sometimes feel like it, but I am strong enough to resist the urge. I am able to work, to have a relationship, to live, I am functional.
Those times feel so far away, I feel like I've come a really long way and those bad days are really an okay thing to still have, considering that I do not have to deal with all this other stuff anymore.
Phhh that was a long text and I did not mean to write all this but I'll publish it anyways, because it is honest and honesty should not be covered up only because it is not pretty.

Team by Lorde
















It's kind of weird because when my boyfriend showed me some of her songs at first, months ago, I did not like it. Not at all. And then she became popular and 'Royals' was all over the radio (and it still is) and it annoyed me so much and now here I am, listening to her album and actually enjoying it a lot. This song is my favorite so far, I love the beat and the lightness of the melodies and sounds, it feels like summer a bit. Which is great because winter is here and there is a heavy storm coming later today and I can already hear the wind howl around the roof under which I live now and it is really loud and a bit scary.

"We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team

I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air, so there
So all the cups got broke, shards beneath our feet, but it wasn’t my fault
And everyone’s competing for a love they won't receive
'Cause what this palace wants is release"

Still Take You Home by the Arctic Monkeys
















Sorry for my long absence first of all. I moved and everything went alright, now I live high up under the roof and I have a fantastic view over the city which is great and I have to climb about one million of stairs everyday to get home which is not so great, but oh well. I'm getting used to it already. Perfect body shape I am coming!
A while ago I went to Berlin to see The National and the Arctic Monkeys live and surprisingly I liked the Arctic Monkeys better (a lot, actually). So here is one of my favorite tracks by them, which they unfortunately didn't play but whatever, the set was great anyways. Eversince that evening I am fangirling Alex Turner like a mad thirteen-year-old and I love it.

"I fancy you with a passion
You're a Topshop princess, a rockstar too
You're a fad, you're a fashion
And I'm having a job trying to talk to you
But it's alright, yeah I'll put it on one side
And everybody's looking
You've got control of everyone's eyes
Including mine"

I am moving next weekend and I have to get so many things done until then tht my head starts to ache when I think about it and I wish I could invent timetravel so I could relax a little. And meet Elliott Smith, who died exactly 10 years ago. But anyways I just wanted to inform you that from next week on there will be more posts again. Yay! Have a great week everyone :)
