Song Lyric Sunday 11/2/18

This week Helen Vahdati, in conjunction with Simply Marquessa have said that songs about Telephone Calls are the Challenge for Song Lyric Sunday.

There are happy songs, sad songs, funny songs about Telephone calls. Songs about, people who have moved, people who have died!

Well I have chosen one about the frustrations that being apart and needing to talk can bring. This song Telemiscommunications. By Deadmaus5 and Imogen Heap explains brilliantly the stress and frustration of trying to use your mobile, long distance. We all been there haven’t we, we keep ringing then when we finally get through we get called away, or there is a loud noise, music, traffic or you are interupted by someone asking you directions or a question. It is so frustrating, it makes you want to scream. Then just when you feel so low you want to smash your phone up , you get a reassuring message, ” have I told you I love you today? xxxx)

This song was a collaboration between Imogen Heap and Deadmaus5.

“Telemiscommunications”
(with Imogen Heap)

Hey babe, how’s your day been?
No, you first..
Oh.. what? The delay’s quite bad
Yeah, sorry..
Where are you, I can’t really hear you
A taxi, distracted..
Anyway you.. You were saying?
Wait, uh..
Now they’re waving me over
Can I call you back?
Yeah, everything’s fine
Why am I.. I don’t know why
I probably just need sleep
It’s been a busy week
Sorry, I’ve got to go
So, ok.. bye

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

Plan foiled
The sirens pass by
Kids screaming
The longest public announcement
Reach check-in, finally got through
Running for a flight, shoes off
You’re calling voicemail
In joke, group laughter
Closing scenes in a meeting
Angel (angel) why didn’t you tell me?
One second, someone needs directions
Can’t you see I’m on the phone?

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

So unlike us (unlike us)
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
(kiss kiss)
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
(kiss kiss)
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today

Writer(s): Joel Thomas Zimmerman, Imogen Jennifer Jane Heap

    That can be the most frustrating thing! This song perfectly captures the frustration. Great pick, Willow!
