Party girls don't get hurt Chandelier by Sia 15

Sia begins the song with almost a dubious invincibility. The alcohol shield / IDGAF-barrier makes the party girl immune to feeling anything real… or at least until it wears off.

The dark-party-theme-masquerading-as-an-anthem is similar to Bright Eyes‘ “Lover I don’t have to Love”, which also chronicled the emotionally detached falling deeper into the party numbness.

She builds on a concept she introduced on her 2008 album Some People Have Real Problems.

Got my guards down in God's garden, Eve and Adam eatin' all of it
Before I left and I was leaving
Took a bite and it was sweeter than a bitch, now I'm bitter
Don't Wait (Remix) by Mapei (Ft. Chance The Rapper & Social Experiment) 3

A powerful allusion to the Original Sin, but instead of just Eve, Chance too (the Adam here) is guilty. He not only bites but eats the entire apple!

Chance’s apple is actually the girl of his desire or their love. He bit and couldn’t stop with just a taste.

The “left/leaving” might refer to when Adam & Eve were then expelled from the Garden of Eden for eating the apple. As an allegory Chance points to the vulnerability of love — running towards it and away from it all the time.

Also note how Chance pronounces “eatin'” like Eden.

April 11th - 18th             2014 Tour Dates by Outkast (Ft. Andre 3000 & Big Boi)

Hard to believe these superstars aren’t closing out the festival, regardless, day 1 of Coachella will be one of the most memorable, not only because it kicks off the festival, but also because it kicks off the Outkast Tour!

Two weekends, 3 days: Outkast performs 4/11 and 4/18

Sadly, Outkast is so dope that BOTH weekends of Coachella are SOLD OUT, but you can try your luck buying tickets here.

June 6th – 8th 2014 Tour Dates by Outkast (Ft. Andre 3000 & Big Boi)

Last year it was Kanye and this year Outkast?! Governors Ball is probably the best music festival in the North Eastern U.S. Sure, it’s a bit of a trek from the other boroughs, but it feels like you’ve left NYC when you get there.

TIP: Check the forecast, because if it rains again like last year, you’ll want to bring rubber boots!

Festival is 3 days. Get your tickets soon!

Used to borrow dollars, now my sense ain't so common Made in Black America by Common (Ft. Ab-Soul)

Soul makes a subtle nod to the other artist on this track, Common, whose first album was entitled Can I Borrow a Dollar? and whose original moniker was Common Sense. He also sneaks in some clever wordplay with the homophone for “sense” with dollars/cents.
