Sandy Vile - Gangster of Love (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

I hope you like it, I had a lot of fun making it. Yes, I did everything myself so that’s why it’s so simple and cheesy and Windows-Movie-Maker-y (ha). Feel free to message me with any questions or comments about the video and don’t forget to share, like, reblog, and subscribe! Thank you to each and every one of my supporters, you guys make this worthwhile.

Hard Knock Life - Sandy Vile

I’ve been working on this what feels like a long time and it’s not going to get much better than this; I’m no producing or recording whiz. Full of clicks and crackles. It means a lot to me on an emotional standard, though, so I guess that’s what matters.

LYRICS

Dance all night by myself, give the world to someone else

Pack your bags and say goodbye

Ready to take off to paradise

I want all or nothing,

Is that all you’ve got?

The flame alight in a kiss

Don’t take me home ‘til I know what rough is

Hard knock life for the better

Please don’t cry for the weather

Hard nights spun together

If love is a lie, lie to my face

We’ll lie to each other

Pop the reds and drag the steel,

Mercy if you know how I feel

Years wasted in the dark,

Curtains closed and lights turned off

I want all or nothing, 

Is that all you’ve got?

The flame alight in a kiss

Don’t take me home 'til I know what rough is

Hard knock life for the better

Please don’t cry for the weather

Hard nights spun together

If love is a lie, lie to my face

We’ll lie to each other

Can I get an answer, just for a little while?

Forget the past and the future,

Just tell me now

Can I get an answer, just for a little while?

Forget the past and the future,

Just tell me now,

Tell me now

Is it for the better?

Hard Knock life

Tell me now, can I get an answer?

Hard knock life,

Hard knock life

Starry now available on Spotify! Thank you, Routenote! ♥

Such a duty of happiness, I cannot explain

How do meteors stay on fire when it rains

Tonight, tonight is more

Tonight, we dance nuclear

Tonight, we fight the war

With glitter paint

On our face

Tonight is Starry

Tonight is Starry

Little paper boats in the park fountain

How does paper float if it’s wet again

Tonight, tonight is free

Tonight, we take the street

Tonight, we are soldiers

With warrior shoes

On our feet

Tonight is Starry

Tonight is Starry

Don’t be sorry

Don’t be sorry

Tonight is Starry

Tonight we dance nuclear

Tonight we fight our war

Tonight, with spray paint and pop guns

The radio will play All The Young Dudes

Tonight is Starry

Tonight, tonight is free

Tonight, we take the street

Tonight, we are soldiers

With warrior shoes

On our feet

Tonight is Starry

Tonight is Starry

Don’t be sorry

Tonight is Starry

Tonight we dance nuclear

Tonight we fight our war

Tonight, with spray paint and pop guns

The radio will play All The Young Dudes

Tonight is Starry

Tonight, tonight is free

Tonight, we take the street

Tonight, we are soldiers

With warrior shoes

On our feet

Tonight is Starry

Tonight is Starry

Don’t be sorry

Tonight is Starry

I keep putting off the video because I’m so self conscious about it ugh…

I feel bad so I’m gonna release some info about it:
There’s homages to the Beastie Boys, Marc Bolan, and a couple of other artists. It’s a cheap ripoff of the “I’m a woman and I wear the pants in the relationship” pop hit but is satirical of it. It’s about the way women so often have to fight to be noticed that they’re an equal half in the relationship. It’s about being young, being bad, and embracing female sexuality for what it is rather than using it to exploit women and create a sexist vibe. It’s glitter and dancing and burning down the trailer park. It’s a manifesto for “I refuse to let you or anyone else control me and my body”. Love is dangerous, and it’s so easy to mess things up.
