LCD Week #3 “I can change”

Another one off last year’s “This is Happening”, this one seems to capture the simultaneous desperation for and suspicion of love that seems to come with being thirty-something. But in classic LCD style, the snazzy beat and heavy synth work and arguably Murphy’s best vocal performance ever gloss it over and make it something to dance to. That ain’t easy to do, kids. This is them live (and great) on Later with Jools Holland last summer.

And love is a murderer/
Love is a murderer/
But if she calls you tonight/
Everything is all right/
Yeah, we know/

And love is a curse/
Shoved in a hearse/
Love is an open book to a verse/
Of your bad poetry/
And this is coming from me.

But I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change/
I can change, I can change, I can change/
If it helps you fall in love.
