Shuffle Song Of The Day (5/21/18): “Time To Pretend” By MGMT

“Time To Pretend” is a song by the band MGMT from their debut 2007 album Oracular Spectacular. The song is commonly heard at sporting events and whatnot, and the music video is basically an acid trip which just makes the song even better. Even though the shuffle picked this, which is a very popular song of theirs, I suggest checking out Oracular Spectacular because it’s a really cool album. I’ve mentioned before how I love when bands can blend a bunch of different styles together, and MGMT does it perfectly with a good mix of indie rock and synth. For the longest time I wondered what MGMT stood for, and turns out it actually stands for management. Still don’t really understand it, but as long as they continue to manage making good music I don’t really give a shit.

Favorite Lyric(s)

I’m feelin’ rough I’m feelin’ raw I’m in the prime of my life

Let’s make some music make some money find some models for wives

I’ll move to Paris, shoot some heroin and fuck with the stars

You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars

This is our decision to live fast and die young.

We’ve got the vision, now let’s have some fun.

Yeah it’s overwhelming, but what else can we do?

Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

Forget about our mothers and our friends

We were fated to pretend

I’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms

I’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world

I’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home

Yeah I’ll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone

But there is really nothing, nothing we can do

Love must be forgotten. life can always start up anew

We’ll choke on our vomit and that will be the end

We were fated to pretend
