You can listen to “Rocket Girl” by Lemaitre featuring Betty Who here.
I haven’t written a song of the day since Tuesday. I went for a walk with a friend who had some fantastic news on Wednesday and I just forgot until I was going to bed and by that time I was tired. Then last night I just had a terrible headache. So I’ve been distracted by feeling great and feeling terrible. I felt bad on Wednesday night about not writing anything. This has been a cool project so far and I’ve had a pretty good streak going of writing every week day. I didn’t feel anything on Thursday because my head was absolutely banging.
For the most part, this week I’ve been listening to the songs that came from the “Ojai” song radio that I mentioned the other day. I think the best thing I heard was “Rocket Girl” by Lemaitre featuring Betty Who. I think I like it so much because it reminds me of a bunch of other songs. It reminds me of the abrupt distorted sound of Childish Gambino’s “Heartbeat”. There’s something else there that I can’t place that it reminds me of. I’d love to hear what anyone else thinks it reminds them of. It might help me figure it out. I think reminding me of other songs is a good thing in this case because it’s all stuff I like.
I’ve always liked Betty Who’s voice. I like that she sings pop songs but still sounds kinda Australian. The lyrics are quite neat. There’s pop culture references without going overboard or reaching too hard for them. It’s a cool funky song. I’d imagine there’s plenty of anime montages put to it and it’s hard to blame anyone because it’s pretty kick ass.
