50* Heaven knows

Hell, this sounds bad from the start. But NOT bad as being a bad song on the contrary too good by listening a bad-girl singing!

“The Pretty Reckless”

Cheers up to their perfectly according name of this american rock band formed in 2007.

Just out of curiosity:

Do you remember that “Grinch” movie starring a little girl called “Cindy Lou”? Or did you ever watch “Gossip Girl”? and if so, remember little “Jenny Humphrey”? Okay, great. Say “hi” to actual Jenny Lou all grown up, being rude and leading this band!

This song gots the ideal, classic, missed rock vibe we all crave since Guns n’ Roses, Nirvana or Joan Jett.

From the start of this song and when watching the official music video it reminded me of “I love rock and roll” the beat as hand claps, the shout of “sing it” and the chorus eco voices!

At the end, the repetitive lyrics in this song can’t be call unnecessary since this song tries to make a point (that is actually scary when you watch kids singing while watching kind of diabolic scenes and Taylor Momsen naked)

But “hell yeah” singing out loud to this song makes you feel like Kurt Cobain knowing that maybe heaven is too mainstream and living in the fast lane will pay off. Anyway bad kids never listen to what people say.

…And the pretty lyrics (spanish/english):

Jimmy’s in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close you can hear him cry
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing it
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below

Judy’s in the front seat picking up trash
Living on the dole
Gotta make that cash
Won’t be pretty
Won’t be sweet
She’s just in here on her feet

Sing it
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Go
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing
Oh Lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Oh Lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

I’ve had better days, man
I’ve seen better days
I’ve had better ways, man
I know better ways

One, two, three and four
The devil’s knocking at your door
Caught in the eye of a dead man’s lie
Start your life with your head held up
Now you’re on your knees
With your head hung low
Big man tells you where to go
Tell ’em it’s good
Tell ’em okay
Don’t do a goddamn thing they say

(…)

Gina’s in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close
You can hear the crying
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh Lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Oh Lord, Heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh Lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
