SONG PICK: Me Not You – Relief
Our Song Pick of the Day, “Relief” is about how a humiliating experience can turn things for the better. In case of Me Not You singer Nikki it was being kicked out of Catholic school. I’m sure her family wasn’t delighted, but “In a sense it’s a relief”. That scene from Jerry Maguire comes to mind, where he sings to Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’” after he was fired from his job. For Me Not You the experience takes a darker turn, though: distorted guitars keep the song on the ground and Nikki repeats the chorus again and again, as if she still needs to convince herself. I’m looking forward to see Me Not You at SXSW this spring.
