21 Iconic Lyrics From Lorde's "Melodrama"
Brian van der Brug

It's been a little over a month since Lorde released her new album Melodrama and if you listen closely, you can still hear me screaming about it. It has definitely become my album of the summer and in honor of its greatness, I figured I'd compile some of my favorite lyrics from Melodrama. These are either lyrics that will seep deep into your bones or hit you with an extreme wave of relatability. Basically, these lyrics will have you saying "Melo-damn, Lorde."

1. "She thinks you love the beach, you're such a damn liar." - Green Light

If you don't sing this lyric through gritted teeth, you're missing out.

2. "Well those rumors, they have big teeth. Hope they bite you." - Green Light

3. "Well summer slipped us underneath her tongue." - The Louvre

Personifying summer is something I think many of us are here for.

4. "I overthink your punctuation use." - The Louvre

It's safe to say Lorde isn't alone on this one.

5. "But we're the greatest, they'll hang us in the Louvre. Down the back, but who cares -- still the Louvre." - The Louvre

Still the Louvre.

6. "She's so hard to please, but she's a forest fire." - Liability

7. "We slow dance in the living room, but all that a stranger would see is one girl swaying alone, stroking her cheek." - Liability

Lorde singing about self-love will pretty much fuel you for the rest of 2017.

8. "But every perfect summer's eating me alive until you're gone." - Liability

9. "They're gonna watch me disappear into the sun. You're all gonna watch me disappear into the sun." - Liability

10. "Please, could you be tender? And I will sit close to you." - Hard Feelings/Loveless

11. "I care for myself the way I used to care about you." - Hard Feelings/Loveless

This line can definitely apply to anyone. Whether they're reminded of a relationship or a friendship when they listen to it, it's a lyric that definitely speaks volumes.

12. "Bet you wanna rip my heart out? Bet you wanna skip my calls now? Well, guess what? I like that." - Hard Feelings/Loveless

13. "We're L.O.V.E.L.E.S.S Generation." - Hard Feelings/Loveless

You can't resist boppin' to this part of the song.

14. "And the terror, and the horror, when we wonder why we bother." - Sober II (Melodrama)

15. "Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark." - Writer In The Dark

16. "I'll be your quiet afternoon crush, be your violent overnight rush..." - Supercut

17. "Cause in my head (in my head, I do everything right)." - Supercut

Too real. Too relatable.

18. "We were wild and fluorescent, come home to my heart." - Supercut

19 . "Aah!" - Supercut

This is a scream that Lorde does at 2:33 and it's that good that it's on the list. You won't regret listening to it. It's the scream of the year.

20. "All of our heroes fading..." - Perfect Places

21 . "Trying to find these perfect places. What the f*** are perfect places anyway?" - Perfect Places

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
