Coming off of her historic night at the Grammys, Billie Eilish has her second top ten hit with ‘everything i wanted,’ the latest single from her lauded debut album when we all fall asleep where do we go.
The previous single, ‘bad guy,’ made it to #1, while this one peaked at #8 and is currently sitting in the tenth spot.
I enjoyed Eilish’s 2017 EP Don’t Smile at Me quite a bit, but I haven’t warmed to this album. It has a few highlights, but too much of it is meandering and shapeless. This song has grown on me with repeat listens, though.
My older daughter Sophia credits me with exposing her to many of the musicians and songs she loves. But the feeling is mutual. I have encountered plenty of great music through her suggestions, or by hearing the songs drifting out of her bedroom or soundtracking her Instagram stories.
A great example is Billie Eilish, whom Sophia first started listening to a couple of years ago before the release of the Don’t Smile at Me EP. She particularly loved the song ‘Bellyache,’ which I was convinced I had already included on the blog, but apparently not. I’ll do that soon.
