I cant even post one lyric from this song because it really is #EVERYGODDAMNLYRIC. Jess and Lisa are my girls for fucking life.
I have a few other real life updates to post but due to the fact that The Veronicas just released their third, self titled album today in Australia I need to take a break to review my favorites from the album. Even though it doesnt come out in America until the 25th I have heard every track on tumblr hahahah.
Did You Miss Me (I’m a Veronica)
Jess & Lisa, Toby Gad, Josh Alexander
Jess has said that Billy Corgan worked on the riffs for this track which is a nice throwback to their relationship. I was really excited to learn that he was jamming out with them and even though I think the chorus is kind of corny, the song itself is bad ass and I like the sample from the movie The Heathers. Also I like the ego sentiment of the title. Because they do miss you.
Jess & Lisa, Dan James, Leah Haywood, Rob Ellmore
This song is increasingly growing on me. I like when Jess describes the message as “I cant stand seeing you with this other person” And it does have this very fun upbeat sound despite how unpleasant the actual lyrics are. I’m making out like I dont care, but in her sleep I’d cut her hair. Actually I’d fucking shave it all off so they could be twins. :D
Chris Loco, Emeli Sandé
I respect that Jess and Lisa arent afraid to record a song that was written by someone else. On their second album, they recorded an excellent version of This Love which was written by Kesha. I think it actually shows true talent and versatility when an artist can perform a song that they didn’t touch. Always is probably my favorite track on the album. Its such a beautiful love song and I think the girls vocals are really strong especially since this has an R&B feel to it. They will definitely be able to do a killer acoustic version live. I adore this emotion of always. An evolution on forever I suppose.
Jess & Lisa, Toby Gad, Josh Alexander
The girls performed this song years ago during that awkward interim period between albums and I reblogged the hell out of it then and now. I find it very very catchy and fun. And obviously I know a lot of crazy bitches in the corner that can relate to being driven mad by someone they have fallen for…..
More Like Me
Jess & Lisa, Dave Bassett, Josh Katz
This track is sickkkkkkk. Im definitely going to have to look into these two co writers I know nothing about!! Whats funny about this song is that I think certain women in the world could try to use this against ME, but obviously I don’t feel that way:
There’s no competition
Don’t you know who I am?
With me he’s a better man
The truth hurts
And someday you will see
If you were more like me
This song is a declaration of confidence in herself and in her power. So just go ahead and try to spin it. We ALL know it. I love the line about getting down on one knee. If she was more like me she would.
If You Love Someone
Jess & Lisa, Anthony Egizii, David Musumeci, Josh Katz
Damn this record is really eclectic. This has been tapped as the next single in Australia and the girls just finished wrapping the video shoot. I think its a perfect upbeat counterpart to their first single You Ruin Me. Sort of what the masses are used to hearing from these girls. I mean….. I used to believe in a thing called love. So of course I agree with the message of letting someone know asap how you feel. We never know when our time is up. I feel like I have been harping on this forever. Live openly and honestly.
Jess & Lisa, Gary Clar
As stated before, this song hits me down to the core and I have been waiting for the studio version for YEARS after they performed it during a sneak peak at the Viper Room in LA. Unfortunately I think the studio version doenst hold a candle to the live performance where you can really hear the guitar better. I think the classic Veronicas songwriting rhythm involves Lisa killing the verses and Jess’s insane high notes bringing home the chorus. And of course the wailing screamo harmonizing at the end is like pop pain incarnate! God I just die for angry chick music. New favorite break up song. Hell hath no fury….
You and Me
Jess & Lisa, Alex Dezen
This is the sweetest song ever as it focuses on the twins relationship to one another. I sent it to my wifey and told her its our wedding song. Love & Fate. <3
