This song is so weird. It’s mysterious, chaotic, all over the place, sort of soothing at the same time and since I discovered it in the period of time that I visited Leipzig so much – I either heard it on the train, had it on repeat everywhere I went – its rap, it’s different, the song doesn’t make any sense and the video is weird. I love it. And yes, I also know the lyrics by heart. Did I already mention I love it? Yes, I do.
But then two or three weeks ago, I tuned into Release Radar (like I do every Friday) and heard a song that I couldn’t exactly place.

We all have dreams and we, little girls in the age of 14, could relate to Violets situation so well. Come to think of it, maybe I was a little young to watch the movie. But well, the damage has been done (who else thinks of Cry me a river now?). Out of all the teen movies from that time, and there were a lot, Coyote Ugly is my favourite.
