Song of the Day #4,075: ‘Take It Back’ – She & Him

I went five years between She & Him songs on Random Weekends, posting the first back in 2014 and the second earlier this month. Now, just three weeks later, the duo shows up again.

Little surprises like this that go hand-in-hand with mathematical randomness are the most satisfying part of Random iTunes Weekends. I love the anomalies and clusters that inevitably pop up when you repeatedly spin the wheel.

As for the song, it’s another nice, mellow beauty performed with typical charm by Zooey Deschanel. I like the vaguely Hawaiian sound of the guitars.

Take it back
Oh, take it back

I don’t want your lovin’ anymore
Let me live, oh let me live
It’s not you who I sing for

So don’t sit next to me
Sit by yourself

I don’t wanna wonder whether you love me
I don’t wanna wonder whether you care

So don’t try to woo me
Don’t try to fool me

Oh, I know all of your tricks

It’s the possibility of stayin’ in my corner

I don’t wanna wonder whether you love me
I don’t wanna wonder whether you care

So don’t try to woo me
Don’t try to fool me

Oh, I know all of your tricks

It’s the possibility of stayin’ in my corner

    Lovely, but shouldn’t the song be titled “In My Corner?”
