Lorde - Mustachian musician?
« on: October 01, 2013, 11:05:26 AM »
I discovered this song a few weeks ago (it might be old hat by now, I don't know - I don't really keep up with pop culture these days...)  After grooving to it for awhile, it occured to me that it might well be a mustachian anthem:

"Royals"

[Verse 1]
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no post code envy

[Hook]
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.

And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I we've cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this,
We didn't come from money.

[Hook]
But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your time piece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals (royals).

That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We're bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I'm in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair.

And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

I had the same thought when I heard it! Cool how the production is sparse and simple, like the singer's claimed background.

I'm not sure she is Mustachian...who knows. 


But regarding music, I love that song, and the Pentatonix acapella cover is amazing.

If you think about it Pentatonix are mustachian because they save a lot on not having instruments!

Thanks for that link. I love acapella music, going to have a good listen to their stuff today. That guy singing bass is amazing. You know it's good music when it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

EDIT ----

God-damn, just listened to some more of their music on Spotfy these people are awesome. I think you may have just introduced me to my favourite group of the year!
