"Maxim's I" as written by and Julia Holter....
Tonight the birds are watching me
Do they have more important things to do?
What of hearts in diamonds?
Oh I don't understand
I don't understand

Into Maxim's we will see them walk
Will they eat a piece of cheese or will they talk?
When they're loud enough we can hear their words
By night we are inquisitory birds
Some nights we are asked if we ever tire
Of gazing at their heels and everyday desires
Remember every dewy tale written of their loves?
Compare them to the ones they touch in front of us

We do not dance a story for you
Gil Blas bored whispers awakening the beast in me
Go!
Find your feet
Drink some blood
Say it to my face
If you want to be starting something
If you want to be starting something

    Song MeaningNo comments? But this is brilliant.

    This song is sung in two voices. Firstly the bemused reality TV star, secondly in the middle section the voice of the reality TV watcher, or consumer. The finally back to the TV person, castigating the watcher for their voyeurism.

    In some ways it is a bit disingenuous because a reality TV participant knows what they are getting into, unless they are particularly thick. But I prefer to see it as a commentary on how far social media has pushed back boundaries so that even minor flaws are picked over with the benefit in internet anonymity to a degree that goes beyond rude. Say it to my face.
