HOLD ON, HOLD ON
Neko Case/The Sadies 2005

THE MOST TENDER PLACE IN MY HEART IS FOR STRANGERS
I KNOW IT'S UNKIND BUT MY OWN BLOOD IS MUCH TOO DANGEROUS
HANGIN' ROUND THE CEILING HALF THE TIME

COMPARED TO SOME I'VE BEEN AROUND
BUT I REALLY TRIED SO HARD
THAT ECHO CHORUS LIED TO ME WITH ITS "HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON"
IN THE END I WAS THE MEAN GIRL
OR SOMEBODY'S IN-BETWEEN GIRL
NOW IT'S THE DEVIL I LOVE
AND THAT'S AS FUNNY AS REAL LOVE

I LEAVE THE PARTY AT THREE A.M.
ALONE, THANK GOD
WITH A VALIUM FROM THE BRIDE
IT'S THE DEVIL I LOVE
AND THAT'S AS FUNNY AS REAL LOVE
AND THAT'S AS REAL AS TRUE LOVE

THAT ECHO CHORUS LIED TO ME WITH ITS "HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON, HOLD ON"




So this is what I've been listening to. I'm going out to get the CD today if possible. There are sometimes when music comes out when you are working on a project that really speaks to you in the same vibe. Neko Case is a musician that leaves me wondering, "How the hell did I not hear of her before?". I had seen the name and her mentioned on the radio, but never heard the music. Her voice is very hypnotic and has a retro throwback to Cline and that others from the 50's. I have a suspicion that I'm going to be a devoted fan by soon.
