"Royals" by Lorde #RelativelyNEW #FullyDressed #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton #IMissU


Introduction:


We all want to be seen not for the choices we made ten years ago, but for who we are today.” 
― Elaina Marie

I thank you for putting up with my nonsense in the last post. Seriously speaking, I just found a beautiful talented #fully dressed artist from New Zealand which I must share. Her stage name is Lorde. Her first EP, The Love Club, which was released on November 22, 2012 has a song titled, "Royals"(2). This is the song I that I picked to feature tonight. By the way she has the most amazing eyes. I hope you like this fresh new pop genre. Her message adds to the songs value...

Behind the lyrics:
"Having said this, the song is filled with jealousy and insecurity. Lorde resents the status, privilege, and trappings of success that the royals have achieved. You can feel this in the transitions to “But ever song’s...” and “But everybody’s like Cristal...”; these transitions don’t make logical sense (what is the point that precedes and justifies the “but”‘s?) and sound like someone complaining about someone that they are jealous of and can’t stop thinking about.

The great irony of the lyrics is that “we’ll never be royals” but she keeps talking about becoming Queen and talks about “ruling.”

So on the surface, this sounds like a revolutionary group that wants to overthrow the current power, but who is subject to the same temptations and corruptions. Will Lorde’s new rule be any better than the current regime? Who knows.

So in summary, this feels to me like competitive jealousy, rationalized as moralistic judgment and a comparison of values.."(3)

I have added the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Royals" (4)
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair.

And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

My friends and I—we've cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we're fine with this,
We didn't come from money.

But every song's like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin' in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin' the hotel room,
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair

And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We're bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I'm in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren't caught up in your love affair.

And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.

Let me live that fantasy.

This second Post is short and sweet and I hope everyone is having a blessed HUMP evening…LOL!!!

Peace Diana
I miss you and need you Sugar...
