After hearing a certain song a couple of days ago from a friend, I believe it was Don’t let me go, by some rapper, who sampled Lykke Li’s song, Tonight.
I couldn’t make it stop playing in my head. It’s so folksy-indie-Regina Spektor-ey, which I like. Her voice has an eerie-fairy-like quality that makes the lyrics more piercing. The original song itself is very beautiful, but when sampled along with a lyrical twin in the form of a rap, dang, it’s so good.
I have all his songs. Downloaded his mixtape and he’s real talented. Very good lyrics and beats. But this song is my ultimate favorite.
“and it’s because of you, we’re the best of friends, so take my heart and my love, and Imma etch you in”
