Micky Blue - Champagne Reign

9/20/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments


I just read an amazing interview with this girl, and her musical journey sounds very depressing. Which was refreshing to read about, because the music industry is mostly filled with very dark stories. I went to a darty filled with music people just yesterday, and literally no one wanted to speak to me because I wasn't wearing Doc Martens. So Micky, I relate to your statement "You're nobody till you know somebody." When we're both friends with Taylor Swift we can stomp all over the people who treated us like garbage. Moving on to the actual content, "Champagne Reign" is a delightful floaty pop track. It represents one of my favorite musical models in existence: the sad song with the happy tune. On the surface, this song is la laaaa cotton candy hook and sugary vocals. Lyrically though, I believe it is about some pretty fucked up shit. Consider the following lyrics: "Trying to find life / dancing on a table / champagne reigns over you" To me, those lyrics embody the girl who is the life of every party, but really she is a huge trainwreck that everyone is secretly worried about. Like, it's all fun and games when you're wing-manning a rando's bachelor party, but when you wake up in a Best Western on the floor the next day, maybe it's time to reevaluate your relationship with boyfriend Dom Perignon. HYPOTHETICALLY.
