Short and sweet post about how anyone and everyone needs to listen to this song. EDM lover? Pop music fan? Have a brain and ears? You must listen to this now.
I came across Dragonette when listening to suggested artists on Amazon Music a couple of months and have been hooked on this particular track ever since. Not only is the production great, but the lyrics are something I think most listeners can chew on and relate to:
I’ve got these big heavy stones and I’ve been piling them up In a circle round my heart, in a circle round my heart
I will be happy alone, I swear I say it out loud
With the circle ‘round my heart, with the circle ‘round my heart
I’m like a statue now, I’m not afraid
‘Cause I don’t feel a thing, and I can’t break ….
Just try to hurt me now, I’m not afraid
‘Cause I am made of things that you can’t break
Your love can’t touch me now
The idea of self-preservation in the form of figurative protection in place may or may not be healthy but it’s something worth pondering about. How much can be felt with a buffer and filter surrounding such an absorbent part of being? Who wants to live like that? How many people do, just so that they can live?
It’s fascinating just how much can be felt from such great heights in an effort not to fall. I find myself wanting to both tear down and build up the wall with her.
Plus, this song is pretty awesome when driving or working out. That’s a given.
“Love Can’t Touch Me Now” is off of Dragonette‘s “Royal Blues” LP released in 2016, and — again — if you don’t know who they are, I recommend that you do yourself a solid and find out.
