“It’s about lying to your boyfriend while trying to get up the courage to tell his you don’t feel anything because you’re destined not to be in love with anyone, ever,” “I went around the room with different instruments, and eventually decided they all wanted to be soloing at different times. The sound of all that aimless jamming made it sound like this ambient, loungy, jam session. And then putting all these voices on top would create this atmosphere of an ongoing ambient party. The gal in the song feels alienated from all this, she’s not part of the party even though she’s in the middle of it. There are all these people, all these voices around her, and she can’t hear what they’re saying.”
I’ve been bumping Madvillainy for like 3 days straight now. I just really like how Doom talks as if he’s a rapping supervillain lol. Viktor Vaughn makes an appearance, rapping about Doom is taking his girl. The whole concept of the album of being a supervillain- from the instrumentals to the lyrics to the short skits at the end of songs- is on point.
Listen to Madvillainy and you’ll have a new appreciation of hip-hop!
