Marcus Marr & Chet Faker - The Trouble With Us

For as long as I can remember (2012), Chet Faker has been singing about fucked up relationships. Me guess he likes some crazy. #callme . Whoever his Taylor Swift is, we must send her flowers to thank her for giving the world this song. "The Trouble With Us" is Chet Faker at his very best. Great melody, spittin amazing lyrics. Although I do have to say, I cannot disassociate the line "we're fighting naked / nothing's sacred" with the scene out of Borat when his naked manager wrestles him to the ground. If you didn't think that before...you're welcome for this trauma. For real though, I think this song has really poetic lyrics. Before I say something mean and acerbic to cancel that sincerity, consider the phrase, "That's the trouble with me / I need the trouble with you." So simple. So wise! Even without that stuff, the song is perfect. Who knew a fusion of disco, funk, and (country? eh I'll call it bluegrass) would yield such a beautiful product? It's like when two ugly people have hot kids. Or when Kate Hudson appears in a good movie. Or when two foods that seem nasty together are actually great complements. Pickles n peanut butter. Try it.
