Song of the Day: The Kooks - She Moves In Her Own Way

The British invasion continues...

Nice melody and also good to hear a "real" accent in a song (with one exception - the "t" in "better" is pronounced "bedder" with a pseudo American accent as opposed to using a gutteral "t" which is a shame). The lyrics aren't going to get anyone nominated for poet laureate either but still, the song has the ability to pick your mood up a notch (at least it did for me and I hope it does for you too).



Lyrics:

"She Moves In Her Own Way"

So at my show on Monday
I was hoping someday
You'd be on your way to better things
It's not about your make-up
Or how you try to shape up
To these tiresome paper dreams
Paper dreams, honey

So now you pour your heart out
You're telling me you're far out
You're not about to lie down for your cause
But you don't pull my strings
'Cos I'm a better man
Moving on to better things

Well uh oh, oh I love her because she moves in her own way
Well uh oh, oh she came to my show just to hear about my day

And at the show on Tuesday
She was in her mindset
Tempered furs and spangled boots
Looks are deceiving
Make me believe it
And these tiresome paper dreams
Paper dreams, honey
Yeah

So wont you go far
Tell me you're a keeper
Not about to lie down for your cause
And you don't pull my strings
'Cos I'm a better man
Moving on to better things

Well oh oh, oh I love her because she moves in her own way
Well oh oh, oh she came to my show just to hear about my day

yes I wish that we never made it
Through all the summers
They're keeping us instead of
Kicking us back
Down through the suburbs
yes I wish that we never made it
Through all the summers
They're keeping us instead of
Kicking us back
Down through the suburbs

But uh oh, I love her because she moves in her own way
But uh oh, she came to my show just to hear about my day
But uh oh, oh I love her because she moves in her own way
But uh oh, oh she came to my show just to hear about my day

Oh the song is nice, but I just can't bear the cutesy video clip...I just never got into the "clip" aspect of music, although I love the use of rock music in soundtracks.

Video killed the radio star?

Hi Betty, thanks for listening/watching. The video clip aspect didn't bother me as much as the content of the video - it's not very original! I am guessing they were on a limited budget?!
