Mixtape Mondays | About a girl

Monday, November 28, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

I don't think I've had a playlist in the making for any longer than this one. It was on the verge of entering its 12th month, so I thought I might as well celebrate PMM 1 year anniversary by finally putting it together. Yay!

It is an incredibly personal playlist. Before you ask, yes, it started with a couple of songs which seemed at the time like an introduction to a future biography, but as time went by, it watered down slightly. Some favourites are surely Oasis' She's Electric, Ash's Girl From Mars, Arctic Monkeys' She's Thunderstorms, James' She's a Star and from the same title film, God Help The Girl.

Olly Alexander (from Years & Years), Emily Browning and Hannah Murray in God Help the Girl, directed by Belle and Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch

I could possibly go on and on forever about these songs, lyrics and what they mean to me, but I don't intend to bore anyone to death, so I'd rather you listen to it and make your own mind. But before I leave you, I thought it wouldn't do any harm to indulge myself a little (if there is a post when I can do it, it surely is on the blog's anniversary, right?) and share some of my favourite bits from these witty, sometimes cheeky and fun lyrics. Have a great week folks and happy listening!

Mixtape Mondays | About a girl


"I love my room,
I'm getting used to sleeping
Some nights I really like
To lie awake"
God Help The Girl 

"All I need's a soul to squeeze Eloise, 
Not a worrisome and weary 
way of weakening the knees"
Please Eloise

"She came and substituted
The peace and quiet
For acrobatic blood
Flow concertina cheating heart beat, rapid fire"
She's Thunderstorms

She's been in disguise forever
She's tried to disguise her stellar views
Much brighter than all this static
Now she's coming through
She's a Star

So now you pour your heart out
You're telling me you're far out
You're all about to lie down for your cause
She Moves In Her Own Way

And so if you're crazy, I don't care you amaze me
But you're a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk
I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
Whistle For The Choir

Going through the motions of
Strange ways here we come and teenage love
Can see there's something inside
Her voice is telling her to stay behind
She Said
