New Music To My Ears

I consider myself a bit of a music buff but when it comes to new music, I usually have no freaking clue who any of these solo artists and bands are.

I think it’s one of those old people phenomenon things.

Yet every once in a blue moon my daughter will introduce me to something that I really like. Then I’ll spend a considerable amount of time on YouTube listening to every song of the artist/band that I can dig up.

My most recent find is an extremely young and (I think) talented girl named Billie Eilish. Her voice is whisper-like and haunting, some of her videos are akin to watching a horror movie, plus they’re downright depressing.

She draws out my inner sad woman which probably isn’t a great thing but I do like to indulge that side of myself sometimes. I’ve read that people call her genre gothic romance which I didn’t realize was something that even existed.

I mean, you can listen to 80’s music over and over again for only so long before you start craving Aquanet and rotary phones.

No wonder my back hurts so badly now in my elder years…

I’ve missed doing my random music posts so…here we are.

This song is my favorite from Billie Eilish but I do recommend checking out her other tunes as well.


Billie Eilish – Hostage

I wanna be alone
Alone with you – does that make sense?
I wanna steal your soul
And hide you in my treasure chest
I don’t know what to do
To do with your kiss on my neck
I don’t know what feels true
But this feels right so stay a sec
Yeah, you feel right so stay a sec
And let me crawl inside your veins
I’ll build a wall, give you a ball and chain
It’s not like me to be so mean
You’re all I wanted
Just let me hold you
Like a hostage
Gold on your fingertips
Fingertips against my cheek
Gold leaf across your lips
Kiss me until I can’t speak
Gold chain beneath your shirt
The shirt that you let me wear home
Gold’s fake and real love hurts
And nothing hurts when I’m alone
When you’re with me and we’re alone
And let me crawl inside your veins
I’ll build a wall, give you a ball and chain
It’s not like me to be so mean
You’re all I wanted
Just let me hold you
Hold you
Like a hostage
Like a hostage

  1. I like her – though I’m more partial to her first album. Ocean Eyes is my favorite song by her. She’s pretty good – I just hope she doesn’t go all mainstream and her music turn to garbage. Then again, I’m a 80’s, 90’s, and Indie Music kind of girl.
