[MUSIC] Feist, "Inside and Out"

Of late, I've found myself irresistibly attracted to Feist's "Inside and Out." It's a catchy song, anchored by Feist's frail passionnate voice and piano chords, accented by the saxophone of one Frédéric Couderc and given a very smooth production. I wouldn't be surprised to discover that "Inside and Out" was slated to be Let It Die's breakout hit single. It's certainly catchy enough to make me sing along to it.

I'm not sure why I feel a bit ambivalent about this song. I don't think that the fact this song was originally written and performed by the Bee Gees weighs that heavily in my evaluation. It certainly shouldn't be that important, inasmuch as a good song is a good song. Perhaps it's the polish of "Inside and Out" that makes me skeptical about the song. Should a song about heartbreak and betrayal be so easy to listen to?

Baby, I can't figure it out
Your kisses taste like honey
Sweet lies don't gimme no rise
Oh, what you're trying to do

Livin' on your cheatin'
And the pain grows inside me
It's enough to leave me crying in the rain
Love you forever but you're driving me insane
And I'm hanging on
Oh, oh, oh, oh

No matter. I'll still listen to "Inside and Out," along with the rest of Let It Die. The music is still good for now, at least.
