Well I'm obsessed. It's something I have come to terms with in my life. Hello, my name is Dana and I have an obsessive personality trait. Specifically when it comes to music that I like.
What happens is that the song is on repeat for days on end and it's hard to get me to listen to anything else. I certainly TRY, but before I know it I'm listening to the new obsession again. It happens all the time.
And the past couple of weeks, it has been the RAC (Remix Artist Collective) remix of a song, "Feed Me Diamonds"by MNDR.
It is so hot, I can't stand it. Literally-I have to dance when I hear it-I cannot just stand (or sit for that matter).
I accidentally downloaded the original one and then realized it wasn't the one I wanted and I was astounded at the difference. And actually the remix is 1000 times better.
It is always so exciting to me to think about how this person in the collective(whoever s/he was) heard the original and came up with the remix.
I suppose it's not different than having a song on guitar and vocals and then turning it into a mega pop song. But let's be honest, that's exciting to me as well.
So I'm going to give you each version here. The original first. And then the remix and you tell me if you agree that the remix is better, and if you are also amazed and excited by the idea that the RAC listened to the original song and heard it as what is now the remix.
Ok cool. so here is the original "Feed Me Diamonds". Lyrics are below.
Lie with me, lie to me Come on, dismantle me, do it slowly My hands, my feet, my voice, take everything Reduce it all to crystal blackness Cause blind discipline it's useless What's the good in being good?
So go ahead, feed me diamonds Feed me diamonds Feed me diamonds, diamonds Feed me diamonds
A look, a glance, a gesture Can mean everything and nothing A sediment adrift in crystal blackness I won't pursue, I won't, but I can't stop it either <------------------------- - MY FAVORITE LYRICS I'll let the world make it's decision No matter the consequences What's the good in being good?
So go ahead, feed me diamonds, Do what you want to, Feed me diamonds, Bleed me slowly, Feed me diamonds, Feel my heart beating In love completely, Feed me diamonds, diamonds Feed me, feed me diamonds Why won't you save me? Feed me diamonds
Oh oh oh oh...
Blind discipline it's useless What's the good in being good?
So go ahead, feed me diamonds, Do what you want to, Feed me diamonds, Bleed me slowly, Feed me diamonds, diamonds Feed me diamonds Feed me diamonds
