Song of the Day #3,655: ‘Hang With Me’ – Robyn

Swedish dance-pop star Robyn hasn’t released a new album since 2010, when she dropped her Body Talk series of records. That release consisted of two EPs, Body Talk Pt. 1 and Body Talk Pt. 2, followed by a full-length album (Body Talk) that included tracks from both EPs plus a few new songs.

Today’s random SOTD, ‘Hand With Me,’ appears on both EPs in very different versions. The version embedded below was the lead single from the second EP and it’s an upbeat dance track.

‘Hang With Me’ first showed up in a slower, acoustic version on Body Talk Pt. 1. Take a listen to that track either before or after hearing this one.

Two very different but very good recordings, and a reminder that it’s been too long since Robyn graced us with new material.

[Verse 1]
Will you tell me once again
How we’re gonna be just friends?
If you’re for real and not pretend
Then I guess you can hang with me
When my patience wearing thin
When I’m ready to give in
Will you pick me up again?
Then I guess you can hang with me

[Pre-Chorus]
And if you do me right
I’m gonna do right by you
And if you keep it tight
I’m gonna confide in you
I know what’s on your mind
There will be time for that too
If you hang with me

[Chorus]
Just don’t fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me
Cause it’s gonna be
All heartbreak, blissfully painful and insanity
If we agree you can hang with me

[Verse 2]
When you see me drift astray
Out of touch and out of place
Will you tell me to my face?
Then I guess you can hang with me

[Pre-Chorus]
And if you do me right
I’m gonna do right by you
And if you keep it tight
I’m gonna confide in you
I know what’s on your mind
There will be time for that too
If you hang with me

[Chorus]
Just don’t fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me
Cause it’s gonna be
All heartbreak, blissfully painful and insanity
If we agree you can hang with me
Just don’t fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me
Cause it’s gonna be
All heartbreak, blissfully painful and insanity
If we agree you can hang with me

    The song is a bit too basic musically and lyrically vapid for acoustic treatment, but works well in the dance version.
