song o’ the day

El Perro del Mar – “I Can’t Talk About It”

Baby, there’s been a lot going on.
Baby, there’s been a lot going on.
I can’t really talk about it.
I can’t really talk about it…

Baby, oh baby. Baby, oh baby.
Lately, I’ve made a life of my own.
Lately, I’ve made a life of my own.
I can’t really talk about it.
I can’t really talk about it…

At times it feels like this album is my life right now, and this song especially so. This song oozes hurt and conflict-avoidance. The song should be sweet, hey it’s got handclaps and girl-group backing vocals, but it’s played off somehow in a way that makes it sound tired and sad, and her voice enhances those feelings.

    I love this album, too. “God Knows (You’ve Got to Give to Get)” has been my theme/nearly too painful to listen to song for a few months now.
