We don’t really like songs without clips, especially when we watch them on YouTube. This piece with the length of almost 4 minutes is one of those – it uses simply the steady picture of tags with low price on something – just 99 cents (the name of the album).
Santigold has become widely popular outside the US after the emergence of film Paper Towns in 2015, where there were many joyful tunes, like this one. Though the film didn’t manage to make the huge box office, it starred Cara Delevingne, for whom this film was a step on her career breakthrough, or rather it will be better to say – one of the grades of the ladder that she gradually ascends.
In the lyrics, there are many lines but when you do listen to a song, you don’t really understand the complexity of lines. Or rather, their quantity. The quality is also dubious – too many repetitions and too less essence is laid down. So, there is a girl (a singer), who says she used to know this big fellow, wearing a million dollars suit, when he wasn’t that big and fancy. He was like everybody else from the place where she is. He could be rude, but he was funky, handsome and enjoying for her and for the people around. Now he is a big star and holds all that money, but when she was trying to make him a phone call, looks like he was too busy to talk to her, as she was on the long waiting list for an answer. Of course, she is extremely dissatisfied with him and his behavior. Looks like she even was unnoticed when he was around. If it is true, it gives way another hue to the entire song – she was in love with him, but now, as she is unnoticed, she could say some nasty things about this person, as she is trying, like many people, to have some profit from the fact she knew him once. It changes the situation – he doesn’t want to talk to losers around and strives only for the best and new heights. While she is the representative of long-gone days for him. Yes, we’ll stick to that point of view.
‘Who I Thought You Were’ is the part of an album 99¢, released in 2016. It holds the average approval rating of 7 out of 10 if to consider the review scores, aggregate scores, and professional ratings (according to wiki data). As for the pea positions in the various charts, the best result is fifty-first in Swiss Albums (Schweizer Hitparade) and the worst is 178 in the Belgian Albums (Ultratop Wallonia). We are sure these are not too good positions for you to consider to listen to this music and buying this album if you haven’t been the admirer of this singer up to now.
