Posner – så mycket bättre akustiskt

Mike Posner av

Ni har hört I took a pill in Ibiza bli söderspelad på radion.

Det finns en annan version.

En orignalversion – som är så väldigt mycket bättre.

För mig har Mike Posner alltid varit en pop-dance-snubbe. Inte så konstigt med tanke på hans platta 31 minutes to takeoff eller att han har skrivit låtar åt Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, Wiz Khalifa, Nelly och Avicii.

Det var ingen skillnad när jag hörde remixen på superhiten I took a pill from Ibiza på radion. Jag blev desto mer förvånad när jag hörde EP:n The truth.

Där finns I took a pill from Ibiza som den var tänkt att låta. Det är avskalat. Det är singer-songwriter-stil. Och framför allt är det väldigt, väldigt bra.

Vad hände där egentligen? Så här låter väl inte Mike Posner? Tydligen gör han det. När han vill. Om han vill.

Vilken version är bäst? Remixen?

Den avskalade?

För mig är valet enkelt …

I took a pill in Ibiza

To show Avicii I was cool

And when I finally got sober, felt 10 years older

But fuck it, it was something to do

I’m living out in LA

I drive a sports car just to prove

I’m a real big baller ‘cause I made a million dollars

And I spend it on girls and shoes

 

But you don’t wanna be high like me

Never really knowing why like me

You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone

You don’t wanna ride the bus like this

Never knowing who to trust like this

You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing

All I know are sad songs, sad songs

Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

 

I’m just a singer who already blew his shot

I get along with old timers

‘Cause my name’s a reminder of a pop song people forgot

And I can’t keep a girl, no

‘Cause as soon as the sun comes up

I cut ‘em all loose and work’s my excuse

But the truth is I can’t open up

 

But you don’t wanna be high like me

Never really knowing why like me

You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone

You don’t wanna ride the bus like this

Never knowing who to trust like this

You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing

All I know are sad songs, sad songs

Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

 

I took a plane to my home townI brought my pride and my guitar

All my friends are all gone but there’s manicured lawns

And the people still think I’m a star

I walked around downtown

I met some fans in life I earned

They said tell us how to make it ‘cause we’re getting real impatient

So I looked ‘em in the eye and said

 

But you don’t wanna be high like me

Never really knowing why like me

You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone

You don’t wanna ride the bus like this

Never knowing who to trust like this

You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing

All I know are sad songs, sad songs

Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

EP:n består av fyra låtar. Alltihop är avskalat och bra.

Övriga låtar är Buried in Detroit, Not that simple och Be as you are.

People used to say I didn’t deserve you

I was cool with that, cause I felt the same

But then they played my song on the radio

And I don’t think you liked who I became

 

And so you left, yeah you left

On someone else’s arm now

And I’m trying, yeah I’m trying to let go

 

Musikälskare sedan liten skit ... Fem album man måste ha i samlingen? Oasis - (What's the Story?) Morning glory, The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 sound, Tom Petty - Full moon fever, U2 - The Joshua Tree, Dire Straits - Brothers in arms och Bruce Springsteen - Born In the U.S.A. Det gick inte att välja fem ...
