Shuffle Song Of The Day (9/12/18): “Los Angeles” By Sugarcult

 

“Los Angeles” is a song by Sugarcult from their 2006 album Lights Out. As you might be able to guess the band is from California and the song is primarily about living in the city of Los Angeles. Funny how that works out. The video I posted isn’t even the official video but is instead just a cool video a Youtuber by the name of MaKs_IV so shoutout to him on the great shooting and editing. This song is relatable for a number of reasons, particularly when he lists off all of the things he wants. Who in their right mind doesn’t want a car that won’t break down, a girl that doesn’t talk back, and a job that gives you slack? That’s the dream right there. I also like the repetition that’s used during the verses because there’s just something so catchy about it. I’ve never been to LA, that’s more Budd Dwyer territory, but I can only assume that the heat must really suck since they keep talking about it in this song. Fuck heat, I’ll take shitty Boston winters over constant swamp ass any day.


LYRICS

I want a girl, girl that won’t talk back

And a job, job that gives me slack

And a car, car that won’t break down

In the heat of Los Angeles

I want to go, go without a map

Far away, away, I won’t get trapped

By the sound, a town, the sun beats down

In the heat of Los Angeles

One more holiday

I will not celebrate

I’m almost desperate

‘Cause I’m down, I’m down, I’m so beat down

This city’s killing me

I want, I want, I want everything

This city’s killing me

In the heat of Los Angeles

I want a love, love that won’t hit back

Want sex, sex without a catch

Want a face, to trust, to feel, to lust

In the heat of Los Angeles

Want to fuck, fuck, fuck this up

Gonna feel, feel, feel you up

Had enough, enough, enough, enough

In the heat of Los Angeles

This city’s killing me

I want, I want, I want everything

This city’s killing me

In the heat of Los Angeles

What has become of me?

I want, I want, I want everything

This city’s killing me

(I want everything)

Come on, come on

It’s alive and breathing

Come on, come on

Come alive today

Come on, come on

It’s a heartless beating

The sun is burning down Los Angeles

Los Angeles

Los Angeles

I want a girl, girl that won’t talk back

And a job, job that gives me slack

And a car, car that won’t break down

In the heat of Los Angeles

Come on, come on

It’s alive and breathing

Come on, come on

Come alive today

Come on, come on

It’s a heartless beating

The sun is burning down

Come on, come on

It’s alive and breathing

Come on, come on

Come alive today

(This city’s killing me)

Come on, come on

It’s a heartless beating

The sun is burning down Los Angeles (One more holiday)

The sun is burning down Los Angeles (I will not celebrate)

[Repeat]
