I’ve got a song in my head, which will be a common theme for this blog. It’s Robyn’s “Konichiwa Bitches,” (I don’t know why she spelled it like that either, fellow Japanese speaker) from her self-titled album released in 2005. I don’t love the androgynous style she’s got going on right now, but her music is still great. The song is a tongue-in-cheek rap, devoted to praising her hardcore style and her valuable assets. “One left, one right, that’s how I organize ’em / You know I fill my cups no need to super-size ’em.” And if that isn’t contemporary prose at its finest, I don’t know what is. The accompanying video is maddeningly ridiculous. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is an accurate portrayal of how she views of the world.
Buy Robyn’s self-titled album from Amazon.
And you, what do you think?
