it’s depressing seeing all these coming of age films with white girls who are allowed to experiment with their outfits and have a fun soundtrack and the whole tone of the film is lighthearted like why can’t non white girls have more films that are like that? sometimes i just wanna see a group of cute black girls dance to crew with pink lighting covering them or something idk
“I hid myself behind the masks that changes every day, I just wanna be more honest right now. I just wanna dance the night away, in the beat that my city has made. I’m falling deeper. In this moment, I feel the real me.” - IJWD
I just wanna slow dance with you, I know all the other boys are tough and smooth… but I just wanna slow dance with you
So, I wanted to give you guys a bit of a backstory on the song I wrote called “Slow Dance” (it airs on Cartoon Network’s Adventure time this sunday!!!!!!!). I wrote slow dance about this girl I had a big crush on, and she liked me too but she had a boyfriend. The girl in question is actually the person talking in the intro of the original demo of “Slow Dance” ( https://soundcloud.com/babeobaggins/slow-dance-demo ) She had a boyfriend and I wasn’t a boy… (to her). I identify as Genderfluid, and I feel very he/him most of the time. I was so heartbroken because I knew I wasn’t a “boy” in her eyes but I thought I could be, if she let me. Hence, “I know all the other boys are tough and smooth”. It’s okay tho, she’s a very lovely girl and I wrote a really good song out of it. I’m happy you all like it so much. Just wanted you all to know the root of the song.
Be sure to watch the episode Marcy & Hunson on Adventure Time this sunday at 730 pm so you can see marcy see sing my song on big little screen :)))))
p.s a full finished version of slow dance will be on my album that comes out next year for everyone who keeps asking lol
