Strange it didn't affect me
Strange it didn't affect me
The Day You Died by Phantogram

This is the alpha female in her trying to protect her emotions by saying that it wasn’t that hard for her either. But if you examine it closely, it’s just a defense mechanism that spits these words out.

What would I do if it didn't affect you
Merry-go-round and round and round
Tell me the truth, I know that you're leaving
Tell me the truth, I know it's you
The Day You Died by Phantogram

She tried to hurt her lover in a break-up, but he didn’t react with the kind of devastation that she expected.

It’s making her head spin to think of the idea that he wasn’t as into her as she thought…

Fuck The Grammys, fuck that. Fuck Imagine Dragons Rant by Josh Homme (Ft. Queens of the Stone Age)

Homme’s disdain for the Grammy’s doesn’t stem from the fact that they didn’t win an award, as much as it’s likely due to the producers cutting away from the Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails closing performance.

As the awards show came to a close and the bands were playing together (joined by Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham on guitar and Dave Grohl on drums), the credits began to roll on the screens at Staples Center and the audience started filing out. It was a disrespectful move to say the least and NIN’s Trent Reznor was quick to show his disapproval on Twitter as well:

Check out the 1:44 mark of this video when you can see how the broadcast begins to cut out before the Queens of the Stone Age performance ended:

Cause I'm not a puppet I will work against your strings Money On My Mind by Sam Smith

Solid imagery from Smith here that evokes the feeling of the tugging against the tension a puppeteer puts on the strings of a puppet.

Furthermore, the phrase “a puppet on a string” refers to someone who is at the mercy of someone else’s will. Like the all too familiar relationship of an artists and a record label.

But tonight we'll try a different route
How bout we start, with a salad, a fresh bed of lettuce with croutons

It's like, how can you understand the pain
When you never had to stand under the rain?
When it rains, it pours
And it's about to come down hard,
Book of Life by Common

Quite possibly the most powerful line on the entire record. The concept of standing in the rain is vivid imagery to going through life’s ills and perils, but coming out of it as an experienced individual.

Might as well say, “if you haven’t been through it, you wouldn’t get it” or been through “SOMETHING”, for these are the happenings that shape us. The line calls the stark emotional delivery on “Retrospect For Life” as one of these moments.

Common begins using “it’s like” as a qualifier throughout the song and it gives insight into his narrator’s age/youth.

[Chorus] x 6 Always Let U Down by Blood Orange (Ft. Samantha Urbani)

On February 6th, 2014, Blood Orange played at Webster Hall in New York. Dev Hynes joined Samantha Urbani on the song’s final chorus and damn near tore the roof off. They have a very real artistic chemistry.

You're holding on for life, holding on for life
Holding on for love
You're holding on for life, holding on for life
Holding on for love
Holding on For Life by Broken Bells

This insinuates that she’s taken a wrong turn in her life…The prostitution metpahor in the first verse adds to this. She seems like young girl, who’s lost her way and he’s there to provide comfort and solace.

15 - Nick Castellanos, 3B (DET) 2014 Top 100 Prospects by MLB

One could say that Castellanos is the reason the Tigers were willing to part with Prince Fielder (in a trade for Ian Kinsler) this off-season. Miguel Cabrera moves to 1st base and Castellanos takes over the hot corner.

He absolutely MASHED in Single-A, but has taken some time to adjust in AA and AAA. He had 18 jacks and 100 strikeout to go with a .793 OPS last season at Toledo, but his metrics are trending up. Should be a safe bet for a good 400+ AB’s in Detroit this season.
