Pharcyde og hende med afvisningerne

04.04.2020 | youtube

Jeg faldt Pharcyde's (Far Side) nummer Passing my By. Fald selv:

Nummeret er fra 1993. Beatet er typisk rap fra den tid, tror jeg. Teksten handler om at blive brændt af. Tjek feks. dette stykke:

Now there she goes again, the dopest Ethiopian And now the world around me begins moving in slow motion when- Ever she happens to walk by - why does the apple of my eye Overlook and disregard my feelings no matter how much I try? Wait, no, I did not really pursue my little princess with persistence And I was so low-key that she was unaware of my existence From a distance I desired her, secretly admired her Wired her a letter to get her, and it went My dear, my dear, my dear, you do not know me but I know you very well Now let me tell you about the feelings I have for you When I try or make some sort of attempt, I symp Damn I wish I wasn't such a wimp Cause then I would let you know that I love you so And if I was your man then I would be true The only lying I would do is in the bed with you Then I signed sincerely, the one who loves you dearly, PS Love Me Tender The letter came back three days later: Return to Sender, damn

Oh, i've been there, man. Det står noget i kontrast til mere moderne "skralde damer" musik. Dengang samplede man blandt andet Weather Report:

Return to sender.
