A Breakdown Of Billie Eilish's New Album WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

A Breakdown Of Billie Eilish's New Album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

'Keep you in the dark, what had you expected?'


The first song I had heard from Billie was "When the party's over" in my car on a playlist that was on shuffle. I was like "OOOOHHHH. WHO IS THIS? Billie and her brother Finneas write and produce their own music from their childhood home.

1. !!!!!!

A 13-second track of her taking out her Invisalign and laughing about it. This short track is a hint inside of her quirky personality.

2. Bad guy

Billie confronts a former lover who believes he's so criminal. Billie wants to emphasize that she's the only one in control of her friendships and relationships. She's a vision from your nightmares, she's never the type of girl that anyone dreams about.

3. Xanny

A song about Billie's personal experience with those who are dependent on drugs. At the end of the song, she decided that heartbreak is inevitable when dealing with an addict.

4. You should see me in a crown

She's in control of her own life. She doesn't worry about materialistic things. She could be just as happy being broke with $5 in her pocket than with a million.

5. All the good girls go to hell

This song has a lot of deep meanings about Christians and refers to Saint Peter from the Bible. The traditional middle class is usually very strict on controlling gender and sexuality. She believes that all humans are corrupt in some way, no one is 100% perfect. It just doesn't exist.

6. Wish you were gay

An anti-love song. It's like you're in love with someone but for some reason, they won't love you but they would go to anyone else. That hurts like "dang, why couldn't they have chosen me?" feelings. This song is definitely one of my favorites!

7. When the party's over

My #1 favorite song on the album and the first song that I had heard by Billie! She's reflecting on a short-lived past relationship. After breakups everyone needs space and a moment to breathe and think of themselves. Being independent is a good thing, and it's a growing and learning process.

8. 8

This song has the opposite feelings for all of the other songs on the album. Instead, Billie herself is the heartbreaker and hasn't given her love to someone.

9. My strange addiction

Sometimes it's easier to get into the mindset that all relationships inevitably end badly. Don't get too attached because you'll end up getting heartbroken anyways. Live in the moment for yourself. This is a mindset that people often have to process when a relationship feels like a ticking time bomb.

10. Bury a friend

Another one of my favorites! The music video to this is so creepy and was actually directed by directors who make horror movies. This song is about an anxiety-ridden monster and shows the darkest parts of Billie. She admitted that she loves to do her own stunts in her videos and most of the stuff we see is real, not CGI.

11. Ilomilo

The title is based on a puzzle game in which two friends Ilo and Milo always seem to get separated. It's a fear of separation monster.

12. Listen before I go

I think this is the darkest song on the entire album, fear, and feelings of depression. Billie has been very open about her own mental health and being open to accepting help and encouraging her fans to do the same. Billie lets us know that it's okay to feel this way and to know that we aren't alone.

13. I love you

Admitting that you are in love is a huge step, and it's something that makes you completely vulnerable because you're trusting that person to not hurt you. Sometimes you can't escape the love, sometimes you can.

14. Goodbye

In an interview that Billie did she mentioned that one of her biggest pet peeves is when a song ends, and the album ends but nothing feels like it's over. In case you didn't notice in the track list, the last 3 songs of the album are "listen before I go" "I love you" and "goodbye." LITERALLY HER MIND!

Billie doesn't define her music in any genre, she just says "Billie's music." Every song on this album is 5 stars! Hands down it's 5 stars! If you haven't had the chance yet, go take a listen to Billie Eilish!

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
