Tunes & Tales: Get Weird

I honestly am surprised that it took me so long to listen to a full album by Little Mix! I have had plenty of their singles on my playlists, since I'm into catchy pop tunes, but it never occurred to me to actually look them up on Spotify and listen to their album. End result? I'm hooked! I really love Get Weird, and not just because the title is amazing. It's got such fun pop tunes, and very sassy lyrics, and I'm totally looking forward to their next album as well now!

VIBE: Pure, unadulterated girl power pop
WHY: I'm a pop girl through and through, so their sound is right up my alley.
TRY: Black Magic and Hair will be familiar to many already, but I love both those songs. For the lesser known ones, I really love Lightning and I Won't.

If you're lookin' for Mr. Right,
Need that magic
To change him over night.
Here's the answer.
Come and get it,
While you've still got time.
Take a sip of my secret potion,
I'll make you fall in love.
For a spell that can't be broken,
One drop should be enough.
Boy, you belong to me,
I got the recipe
And it's called black magic

Love Me Like You / What I Did for a Duke
Used to get it when I wa-a-ant.
You were pouring out your love, I could never get enough
Now I'm dealing with these bo-o-ys
When I really need a man who can do it like I can
Last night I lay in bed so blue
Cause I realized the truth, they can't love me like you
I tried to find somebody new
Baby they ain't got a clue, can't love me like you.

We're gonna get weird all night
I said, "Now let's get weird all night."
Weird people on the dance floor
We're just doing what we came to do
'Cause we're all weird people and we love it
Don't let them other suckers hate on you
'Cause we're all weird people and we're shaking
From the basement to the roof
You know the people on the bus and the people on the street
People like you and the people like me
Weird people (let's get weird)

Secret Love Song / Timekeeper
We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It'll never be enough
It's obvious you're meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought, I'm in so deep
But I'll never show it on my face
But we know this.
We got a love that is homeless
Why can't you hold me in the street?
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that?
'Cause I'm yours

Hair / Sugar Daddy
I call my girl 'cause I got a problem
Only a curl is gonna solve it
Then I don't really care,
Just get him out of my hair, yeah
Let's switch it up, get it off my shoulder
I've had enough, can't take it no longer
I'm over him I swear,
I'm like yeah
'Cause he was just a dick and I knew it
Got me going mad sitting in this chair
Like I don't care
Gotta get him out my hair
I tried everything but it's useless
He pushed me so far
Now I'm on the edge
Make him disappear
Go get him out my hair

Hold up, wait, you used to be a frenemy
Back then boy, ya didn't even notice me
Why now, you trying to get a hold of me
We never even spoke so what makes you think you know me?
It's funny how the tables turn
I'm sitting back baby watching you burn
No regrets, it's a lesson learned
'Cause what you think ain't my concern
About time that I let you know
My ride and I assume control
You blew it baby years ago
Can't get with me, now I'm grown

I Love You / The Mistake
Uh oh, uh oh, here I go again, baby, baby
I hear your name and it's like I'm breaking, aching
You still got that power hanging over me
It's always over but still happening
Uh oh, uh oh, here I go again, baby, baby
I just wanna scream out 'til my voice breaks
Even if the tears fall and my heart hates me
Baby I love you

I don't even know how I did that
Need a round of applause
Just like cream to a kitty cat
Lining up at the door
Maybe it's the way I work it
My beach bring the boys to the shore
Maybe it's the way I flirt
That they get hurt, they just don't learn
I don't even know
Why they fall like dominoes
Oh my gosh, I did it again
He said I broke his heart, it keeps happening
I don't know why they always fall for me

Lightning / The Perilous Sea
I'd cross a desert and an ocean
To get away from the pain of your storm
I chased the sun light, been running from your shadow
So that I could heal and I didn't feel
That zig-zag shooting through my heart
That zig-zag hit me like a dart
Electricity, electricity
Oh, this love's tearing me apart
I've been running like the light from the dark
Electricity keeps on hitting me

A.D.I.D.A.S. / Changing His Game
Since I met you I've been thinking all day
I've been Googling ways to keep you entertained
It's been 3 weeks since we started to play
Now we're serious, babe, 'cause what you do is crazy
I never had somebody who could do them things
Make me say ooh, ooh, ooh
So come on, baby, baby, come on pretty, baby
You're gonna get it tonight

Love Me or Leave Me / Love, in Spanish
You used to tell me that you loved me once
What happened, what happened?
Where is all of this coming from?
What happened, what happened?
You say I'm crazy and there's nothing wrong
You're lying and you know I know
Baby, what have we become?
What happened?
We used to never go to bed angry
But it's all we ever do lately
And you're turning away like you hate me
Do you hate me, do you hate me? Oh
You, can take this heart
Heal it or break it all apart
No, this isn't fair
Love me or leave me here

The End / The Score
I can't keep breaking up with you,
You messed with my heart baby,
Now it's black and blue,
Love isn't fair,
So I swear,
That this time,
This is the end.

I Won't / Cloudwish
I got my pride, my self-respect
Need nothing more, want nothing less
'Cause all that I got should be enough to make it work
'Cause all that I want is to love and just be loved
I'll never let it go cause we can do this on our own
I'll never let it go, we have too much to let it fall
I'll never let it go 'cause we can do this on our own
I'll never let it go, we have too much to let it fall
And I won't let anybody tell me no
I won't take anything for granted
'Cause I know that nothing good comes easy

Secret Love Song, Pt. II / Daughter of Smoke and Bone 
It's obvious you're meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought, I'm in so deep
But I'll never show it on my face
But we know this, we got a love that is hopeless 

And now I'm older, it's never over
It don't stop affecting me, the world keeps testing me
I'm getting on track with every knock back
On a bad day, I just gotta stay, stay, stay, stay
I stay clued up and I'm ready
To love the good and live the bad
Clued up and now I get it
Just make the best of what you have
Cause sometimes it's beauty, sometimes it's pain
Sometimes it's sunshine, and sometimes it's rain
I'm clued up and now I get it
Just make the best of what you have

The Beginning / The Queen of the Tearling
Let's take it back to where we first began
They turned us strangers into closest friends
Turn the page and see the wonder
That's here for you and I
Was all so different once upon a time
But now the spark we got won't ever die
Close your eyes and feel the magic
Don't ever let it go
