Song of the Day #3,338: ‘The Louvre’ – Lorde

While we wait for the result of our final matchup, I’ll offer up another Montauk Madness regret. This is an artist who hadn’t even released her sophomore record when the contest started, and therefore wasn’t eligible according to my two-album rule.

But if I could tweak the space-time continuum a bit and put Lorde’s Melodrama in my earbuds prior to April, she would have awkwardly danced her way into the lineup.

No sophomore slump for this Kiwi. Melodrama is an even more confident, textured and expansive effort than her celebrated debut, Pure Heroine. She definitely has the chops to be in this for the long haul.

[Verse 1]
Well, summer slipped us underneath her tongue
Our days and nights are perfumed with obsession
Half of my wardrobe is on your bedroom floor
Use our eyes, throw our hands overboard

[Verse 2]
I am your sweetheart psychopathic crush
Drink up your movements, still I can’t get enough
I overthink your punctuation use
Not my fault, just a thing that my mind do

[Pre-Chorus]
A rush at the beginning
I get caught up, just for a minute
But lover, you’re the one to blame
All that you’re doing
Can you hear the violence?
Megaphone to my chest
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it

[Chorus]
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it

[Verse 3]
Our thing progresses
I call and you come through
Blow all my friendships
To sit in hell with you
But we’re the greatest
They’ll hang us in the Louvre
Down the back, but who cares—still the Louvre
Okay I know that you are not my type
(still I fall)
I’m just the sucker who let you fill her mind
(but what about love?)
Nothing wrong with it
Supernatural
Just move in close to me, closer, you’ll feel it coasting

[Pre-Chorus]
A rush at the beginning
I get caught up, just for a minute
But lover, you’re the one to blame
All that you’re doing
Can you hear the violence?
Megaphone to my chest
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it

[Chorus]
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it
Broadcast the boom, boom, boom, boom
And make ’em all dance to it

    Well, I’m sure Maddie will be pleased to hear you sing Lorde’s praises. She is undoubtedly a talent and I like what I’ve heard so far from the new album.

  2. Maddie says:

    I am pleased 🙂 Wish she had met the requirements in time to be included, though I assume she wouldn’t have made it very far in the contest overall. I’m glad that SOMEONE in my family doesn’t dismiss her as angsty and is taking the time to really listen to the new album.
