if you don’t listen to this, you are an elitist

16 Nov

Honestly, this song is one of the catchiest songs in my music library, which has got to be saying a lot. Not only does it possess some addictive rhythmic and melodic hooks–it also sports frenetic basslines, a guitar solo that actually exploits the liberating nature of playing one, and a video that has brooding japanese men (I think they’re 40 now…uhhh) wiggling their hips in an inherently dancefloor “i-can-sex-you” manner.

The song Stay Away (elitists can’t make two clicks…don’t be incompetent) was released as a single in 2000 off the album REAL, by L’arc-en-Ciel. Okay so now that you know who wrote the song, and are probably disgusted, don’t label me as some creepy fangirl part of a cult formed to rape Hyde. Because the only Japanese bands that will ever hold a place in my heart are Guitar Wolf, Eastern Youth, and the Ex-girls.
