While checking for cliff jumping videos in Salagdoong Beach in Maria, Siquijor on youtube, I got led to vevo’s new music video releases from Britney and Rhianna, and then an interview of Lorde.
It’s the first time I’ve heard of her so I checked out her music video of Royals. That’s when I got the last song syndrome.
The song is an apt commentary of the excesses portrayed and projected in most music videos out there and in contrast, the simplicity and honesty of Lorde’s song. It’s just refreshing.
Also, check out’s Pentatonix cover of Lorde’s Royals. Lovely to listen to.
“My friends and I – we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come from money.”
