Marina and The Diamonds sing their own anthem to the American Flag in this sassy, trashy, brassy frolic through a parody of everything from HighSchool cheerleading to who comes to Hollywood and for what. It’s a grand ol’ party where you can’t tell the confetti from the popcorn and you could choke on either. It’s a fairly heavy grind for a poptastic beat.
This new direction suits her well, and the video is vivid and luscious, but I miss the emotional, “I Am Not a Robot,” crooning that she did a few years back.
This is damn catchy, though..with astute lyrics cloaked in tongue and cheekishness.
“American Greed is the American Dream”
“Hollywood Infected my Brain,
Do You Really Want to Kiss Me In the Rain?
I’m Obsessed with the Mess, That’s America,
I’ve been living in the movies, Seeking American Dreams,”
And please send me some of your Memorial Day moments – Styleyedolize should be about all of us – I’d love to hear your input – in the comment boxes and on the sidelines….
