We’ve got a huge soft spot for Trails & Ways. Their brand of sunkissed indie-pop gets us. It gets us big time.
Having already covered M8s’s ‘Midnight City’ and Miike Snow’s ‘Animal’ today they reveal their newest addition, an altered version of Miguel’s ‘Sure Thing’.
In their own words “We redid the verses with some marxist romance lyrics and added some educational/entertaining links within them.” For the full interactive experience, see those lyrics below.
you can bet that, never gotta sweat that.
If you be the Marx, I’ll be your Engels, babe.
If you be the plot, I can be your ruse, boom.
union baby I could be your dues.
If I’m in prison baby you’re my tunnel loose.
cause you’re the suffragette, and I’m the new vote.
you are the miles, I could be your blue note, true though.
you are the bloc, and I can be the soviet.
you can be the talk, and I can be the walk.
even when the sky comes falling,
even when the sun don’t shine,
I got faith in you and I,
so put your pretty little hand in mine.
even when we’re down to the wire babe,
even when it’s do or die,
we can do it baby simple and plain.
this love is a sure thing.
if you be my jimmy, I’ll be your grace lee.
if you’re the picket baby, I could be your tough feet, line it up.
if you’re benjamin I can be yr quote,
neruda baby, I can be your boat, all aboard
spraypaint, I’m the thinner, jackie o, I’m berliner
and it’s you, what can I do to deserve that
angie davis, I’ll be dissent
ya say that I’m the one, cause boy you are a ten
but nothing normative
