Darwin Deez, “Bad Day”
Why do I keep thinking of this as a rap song? Maybe it’s the tiny drum machine, or perhaps the hand-claps, or how Darwin talksings his painless revenge fantasies. It’s not fair, because every play I groove hard to this “rap song” without a care in the world, and every time I’m caught off guard by the halfway point: the music suddenly cuts out except for the aforementioned tiny drums, and Darwin spits “maybe you should wonder why your apartment is always so empty.” Up to that point his burns seemed silly and lighthearted, and the song picks back up right after … But this line cuts like a knife no matter who you are. I guess we should take Deez a little more seriously.
