Song of the Day #1,527: ‘Anytime You Like’ – Robyn

Like Pink, featured a week ago, Robyn is an unlikely occupant of my music collection. Or maybe I have a previously unrealized penchant for R&B/pop singers with super-short white-blonde hair.

The artist Robyn most reminds me of, based on the one album and one EP of hers I own, is Prince. She has a similar vocal style (evident on this track) and employs a similar fusion of funk and pop balladry. And as with Prince, I find a little of Robyn goes a long way.

While that sounds like a criticism, I don’t entirely mean it that way. Some things are just better in moderation. Similarly, I love Green Day’s American Idiot, but I listen to it only occasionally and I have no desire to seek out the rest of their catalog. What I have serves its purpose just fine.

It’s like you’re waiting for me to start
There’s no right moment to break my heart
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like

We could talk any day of the week
I cry myself to sleep in my pink silk sheets
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like

Under pressure
Alright
Under pressure
You and I
Under pressure
I was uptight
Under pressure, yeah

I keep quiet and hope you forget
You know that kitchen table, let’s buy it
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like
Anytime

If I was brave I wouldn’t keep my mouth shut
I’m selfish, I don’t wanna give you up
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like

Under pressure
Alright
Under pressure
You and I
Under pressure
This love is uptight
Under pressure
Yeah

Hey baby
How’you doing?
How was you day?
What’you do?
I said I love you
Yeah?
What’you thinking about? x2
Tell me what’s on your mind
Won’t you tell me what’s on your mind?
I love you so much

Boy, you can tell me
Boy, you can tell me anytime you like

    Never heard of her before. Nice vibe to this song, but nothing that leaves me wanting to hear more.
