am devenit obsedată de acest cântec prin iunie, după ce l-am auzit la vh1. iniţial nu ştiam de unde cunosc eu mutrele din videoclip – pe urmă m-am prins că auzisem un alt cântec de la ei înainte, „electric feel”. de unde a rezultat o mare curiozitate la adresa acestei formaţii, aşadar am aruncat un ochi pe wikipedia şi altul pe youtube. rezultatul a fost că mgmt a devenit una dintre trupele mele preferate.

„time to pretend” rămâne piesa mea preferată, nu numa’ pentru instrumentalul care te ridică instantaneu de pe scaun (când am auzit în lăptărie piesa, am sărit ca arsă), ci şi pentru versurile al naibii de deştepte. so… de pe „oracular spectacular” (2008), piesa nambăr oan (la propriu şi la figurat)…

i’m feeling rough, i’m feeling raw, i’m in the prime of my life
let’s make some music, make some money, find some models for wives
i’ll move to paris, shoot some heroin, and fuck with the stars
you man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars

this is our decision, to live fast and die young
we’ve got the vision, now let’s have some fun
yeah, it’s overwhelming, but what else can we do
get jobs in offices, and wake up for the morning commute

forget about our mothers and our friends
we’re fated to pretend
to pretend
we’re fated to pretend
to pretend

i’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms
i’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world
i’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home
yeah, i’ll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone

but there is really nothing, nothing we can do
love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew
the models will have children, we’ll get a divorce
we’ll find some more models, everything must run it’s course

we’ll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
we were fated to pretend
to pretend
we’re fated to pretend
to pretend

i said yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah
