“I have taken out my Invisaline… and THIS is the Album”
“AHAHAHAHAHAH” – Both Billie and Finneas.
I had NO idea who this young girl was. I knew she was incredibly popular and there was a part of me (when you get older) that initially wanted/needed to ignore and dispose of the idea of her message.
I was wrong.
I was familiar with “When the Party’s Over” for a while.
Then I watched the video… GAWD… I loved it. I was fascinated and wanted more.
She’s (Billie) and an INCREDIBLE artist.
On a business trip in Seattle, from the train into downtown and all over, I listened to the entirety of that album.
Good, lord… I was enamoured. It was the perfect soundtrack. A beautiful and broken soundtrack to a beautiful and seemingly broken city.
The bounce and resolve of a huge city followed up with the most rampant homelessness I have ever seen.
Billie is a force. That album became my Seattle soundtrack.
Every time I hear that whisper of her lyrics… I am reminded of her and Seattle’s outstanding magic.
