Lorde’s ‘Green Light’: A Brilliant Songwriter Enters Her Prime
By Jason Lipshutz 3 Feb 2017
Quick question: What’s the most impressive thing about Lorde?
Take a breath, because there’s really no wrong answer here. You could say it’s her prodigy status and how quickly and thoroughly she achieved her international success: when “Royals”, her debut single, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in October 2013, Ella Yelich-O’Connor was 16 years old, making her the youngest solo artist to reach the top of the chart since Tiffany in 1988.
You could nod to her singular style, previously a strain of dark pop defined by its sparseness, programmed beats, slower tempos and swirling hooks, all anchored by a voice that can rattle off details (“gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin’ in the bathroom, bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room”) and sprawl out in space (“And we’ll never be rooooyals”) with the same fortitude. Since her debut project Pure Heroine — which has sold 1.66 million copies to date, according to Nielsen Music — was released nearly four years ago, its sound has helped define top 40 thanks to smashes by The Weeknd, Alessia Cara and Tove Lo, among others.
Or maybe it’s her consistency: Pure Heroine remains a 10-track opus bursting with ideas about love, loneliness and lack of representation within modern music, while most of Lorde’s non-Heroine material — her Hunger Games single “Yellow Flicker Beat,” her Disclosure collaboration “Magnets” — is just as textured and carefully orchestrated. Some of Lorde’s songs are better than others, but they’re never phoned-in or forgettable.
So, again, really no wrong answer here. But with “Green Light,” a comeback single that barges into your heart on its first play, Lorde makes a good case that her songwriting, above all else, is her strongest asset.

Hate the fake tan in the vid.

But I hear sounds in my mind
Brand new sounds in my mind

Sometimes I wake up in a different bedroom
I whisper things, the city sings ’em back to you

THAT WAS FAR TOO MUCH OF THE SPOILTCRASS THAT IS LORDE
Signing off…….

sparkle I’m waiting for it, that green light, I want it

    Lorde is almighty, don’t begrudge her
    OPINION: Lorde has become so popular. But damn, ain’t it so much cooler to just cut her down?

    A couple rebel top gun pilots
    Flying with nowhere to be
    Don’t know you super well
    But I think that you might be the same as me
    Behave abnormally

    So let’s let things come out of the woodwork
    I’ll be on my best side, tell you all my best lies

    Our rules, our dreams, we’re blind
    Blowing shit up with homemade d-d-d-dynamite
    Our friends, our drinks, we get inspired
    Blowing shit up with homemade d-d-d-dynamite
