I need a mother is just about the most painful song E's come up with until now. Hearing it for the first time - on my bike to work - I really got angry with him. Things like that should remain unspoken. :-(
"I have to laugh when I think how far it’s gone, but things aren’t funny anymore."Ok, ik denk dat het niet goed gaat met E. Want het is niet funny.
Maar zie nu! En luister! What fun! Nooit zo veel zin in dansen gehad ...
Nooit zo hard met een Eels plaat gelachen. Want al het (humoristisch) negatieve wordt compleet uitgebalanceerd. Meer zelfs: bij wijlen gaat E- geheel hilarisch - helemaal compleet over the top. Yup.
