SONG OF THE WEEK
I Was Born (A Unicorn)
Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
October 21, 2003
First song of the week, hey hey! So, why not start off with a song about the band that made it?
Although I've only discovered this album and song a couple of nights ago while staying at my dad's, it already means so much to me. But! This isn't about the album, but the song.
Even though it's not my favorite song on the album, it's certainly one of them, and for good reason. The lyrics are genius and so wonderfully human, even if it's a song about being the last unicorns on earth. It's like it's screaming "hey, bitch, just 'cause I'm different from everyone else doesn't mean I'm not a person," y'know?
The vocals are messy, but a good messy. The kind of messy that's comfortable and familiar - the kind of messy that makes you feel like you're being hugged by your best friend in a way. Their voices crack and go off tune, but all in a way that fits so well.
Basically: this song rocks. Go listen to it.
