40: ‘Beautiful Dirty Rich’ by Lady Gaga

Steven and Natasha are still a couple. They are rich and their daughter, Gaga, gets the full benefit.

She is a beautiful young woman and a completely shameless party girl. She happily spends her parents’ money on watching sexual activities, getting expensive haircuts, buying tight, fashionable clothes and getting shitwrecked on drugs while dancing. She hangs out with young people just like herself: beautiful, dirty and rich.

When the money slips up, Gaga has no problem coming crawling to Steven with fake apologies in order to get more.

Their parents are public figures, so they are used to the press and expressing their lack of shame about their lifestyle in such a charming and sugar-sweet maner, they dance around potential scandals

39: ‘What You’re Made Of’ by Lucie Silvas

Pink and Grey Eyes have been together for years now – and Grey Eyes is no longer happy with it being a secret. She wants more. And she has met a man, who might be able to give her that, even if Pink is the one for her.

Pink doesn’t take that well. She takes it to mean, that Grey Eyes isn’t in love with her.

She knew, this would happen. At some point, they would hit the point of no return and Grey Eyes would no longer be able to live with not being an official part of Pink’s life. They can’t go on like this and it won’t be too difficult to detach their lives because they don’t share anything but emotion.

Grey Eyes disagrees. She insists, she is in love and that this was not inevitable and they can go on – Pink just needs to give her more than the occasional secret date with no actual attachment being made. She wants them to share things, a life, anything.

Pink argues, that it makes no difference, who is right or wrong. She deserves that Grey Eyes commits to keeping the secret, being more careful and not risking Pink getting revealed. This is the only thing, she wants, and if Grey Eyes can’t give her that, she’s not what Pink is looking for.

However much Grey Eyes is willing to give more in the ways of becoming an official couple instead of a secret one, she can’t . And since there’s no way, Grey Eyes will change, they have to break up. Grey Eyes isn’t in love – and that’s alright.

Grey Eyes continues to insist, that she is in love, but it means nothing to Pink. She instead expresses her doubt, that Grey Eyes ever put her heart into anything, because it really can’t be too much to ask for, that Grey Eyes puts as much into this as Pink has!

But Pink doesn’t really blame her for anything. She chose the waters, she’s in. She will either sink into despair or be alright after the breakup, but she chose it herself.

She says following to Grey Eyes for her to consider: ”What’s your definition of the one? What do you really want him to become? No matter what I sacrifice it’s still never enough.”

So they break up. When Grey Eyes leaves, Pink knows in her heart, that she will fall into despair, but hopefully be alright later.

38: ‘Back to the 80’s’ by Aqua

It was in the 80’s Natasha worked at Service and Devotion and first began dating Steven. This is now years ago and the two are sitting together watching the 80’s with technology, that makes it seem as if they are in fact back there when she helped Service and Devotion put satellites in space, before Harmony surpasses her and their then-boss, Ronald Reagan.

They see the trends of the 80’s again: Don Johnson from Miami Vice and his style, commodore 64, Soap,  Rocky, Cherry coke, Mr. T, Twisted Sisters on MTV, Iron Maiden, 7UP, Bananarama, Breakfast Club, David Hasselhoff, too many man with heavy make-up on, too many poodles with guitars and Ferris Bueller.

They agree, that those were the days. M&M was just a snack back then. Huey Lewis was the news. The two of them went flying with Tom Cruise.

Natasha sees the things, she loved in particular: Cosby, Rubik’s Cube, Dynasty, Moon Boots, Devo, Barber Curls, Poltergeist and Barbie Girls, all still standing tall, with a big smile on her face.

I recommend ‘Service and Devotion’, but ‘Steven’, ‘Natasha’ and ‘Natasha and Steven’ would also give you some background information as well as ‘They/Them’, I guess? There are a lot of tags, that might give some background information, but ‘Service and Devotion’ has the only necessary information, is what I’m saying.

Also: this is the second song that might suggest this race/species/whatever, these people are, can fly. I can’t wait until/if the narrative lets me explore that.

 

37: ‘ Call me when you’re sober’ by Evanescence

Pink has disappeared. She is gone and Brad is alone. The mental image of her, that he kept with him, while he was imprisoned, grows up in front of him and shouts blame at him: ”Don’t cry to me. If you loved me, you would be here with me. You want me? Come find me. Make up your mind!”

Make up your mind. Stop sitting around drinking and figure out what to do about this! Take the blame instead of blaming it on Them.

This Pink says, what he imagines the real Pink meant with her silence: ”Should I let you fall, lose it all, so maybe you can remember yourself.”

Remember what he did to her and all of Their victims.

”Can’t keep believing! We’re only deceiving ourselves and I’m sick of the lie!”

The lie of their happy life. What can he do to get her back?

Nothing apparently: ”You’re too late.”

She accuses him of not taking the blame, taunts his shameful secret.

”Must be exhausting to lose your own game.” she taunts.

The game he played balancing secret, Them and Pink. Managing the selfhate he has for his shameful secret.

”No wonder, you’re jaded.” she says hatefully. ”You can’t play the victim this time.”

She doesn’t believe his genuine sorrow over his loss of her, when he only calls on her, when he’s drunk: ”You never call me, when you’re sober. You only want it, ’cause it’s over.”

This makes him argue with her, claiming that she was the one, who burned down their paradise. He was out of Them! He was hers alone!

This doesn’t impress her: ”How could I have burned paradise? How could I!? You were never mine!”

He was theirs, chose Them rather than letting her in on his secret.

”Don’t lie to me. Just get your things.”

He has to untangle his life from hers. Declare her dead. He has to let Pink go.

36: ‘I Love You’ by Avril Lavigne

Grey Eyes is deeply insecure. How could hers and Pink’s relationship last, when it ended before?

So Pink tries to explain her, why she loves her.

It’s not any specific thing. Those she just likes. Like her smile, vibe or style. Her beauty. How she has handled this secrecy like a star or the way she misbehaves when drunk, in great contrast to her usual cool and collected personality, another thing, that Pink likes very much, because it fits well with Pink being so passionate and complicated.

No, the reason Pink loves Grey Eyes is just Grey Eyes being Grey Eyes, with everything that means. And even if there were years between them being together Pink will always be there for Grey Eyes. And Pink asks Grey Eyes if she feels the same and needs Pink as much as Pink needs her.

No new post… Again

I had a sudden job interview quite far away, so the day I was supposed to write the posts, I was stuck in internetless transportation. And now I’m both computerless and wouldn’t have internet even if I had the computer, so I can’t write this week’s post. They are written, just not on the computer, so within two weeks you should have three posts up. I’m very sorry.
