"D2 Boyfriend" as written by and Kimya Dawson Adam Green....
When I was in middle-school,
I had a group of friends,
we wore jean jackets and sunglasses and listened to Duran Duran.
There were 6 of us so when we played it didn't add up, you see- everybody had a Duran Duran boyfriend but me.
I wasn't dating Nick Rhodes, I wasn't dating Roger Taylor, I wasn't dating John Taylor, I wasn't dating Andy Taylor, I wasn't dating Simon LeBon.
I was sitting by myself with my collar up, a tear in my eye and an ache in my heart- my Converse on. And my Converse on.
My glow-in-the-dark with pink fat laces zebra-striped Converse on. So if you are a kid and no one will play with you, stick it out, stay tough, and you'll turn out super-cool!
When I go to a party everybody looks the same. I'm the one they recognize. Everybody knows my name, everybody knows my name. Be yourself . Don’t do- what everybody- tells you to do. Be yourself. Be proud of yourself. You'll be cool. Super cool! (don't be uncool).

    General Commenti'm just gonna be honest and admit that i had no fucking clue this was about duran duran. i had only heard the song till tonite and couldn't understand what she was saying. i can just imagine her dancing around a tiny ass cheap as hell keyboard. doing some sort of robot.
