Modern Girl
Sleater-Kinney Lyrics


My baby loves me
I'm so happy
Happy makes me
A modern girl
Took my money
And bought a TV
TV brings me closer to the world

My whole life
Looked like a picture of a sunny day
My whole life
Was like a picture of a sunny day

My baby loves me
I'm so hungry
Hunger makes me a modern girl
I took my money
And bought a donut
The hole's the size of this entire world

My whole life
Was like a picture of a sunny day
My whole life
Looked like a picture of a sunny day

My baby loves me
I'm so angry
Anger makes me a modern girl
Took my money
I couldn't buy nothin'
I'm sick of this brave new world

My whole life
Was like a picture of a sunny day
My whole life
Looked like a picture of a sunny day
My whole life
Was like a picture of a sunny day
My whole life
Was like a picture of a sunny day

Professor Chocolate Cake

@Jamie Okay first of all this comment is a complete eye-sore, please split your paragraphs up better, I actually felt nauseous reading it. When people make propaganda films, their sole intention is to spread lies and brainwash people, not to simply share their views openly and put them up for debate or question. It's just like in school, even if the textbook is wrong and you correct the mistake, you get failed anyway because you didn't follow what the book said, even if the book was wrong. I used to constantly get into arguments with teachers over shit like that back in my school years.


Anyway why do you think your version of what Propaganda means is the one totally set in stone yet you're more flexible on your version of socialism? Let me guess, you want to be a commie with full government but you also want anarchy with no government? You want citizens to have their guns taken away but have no problem with leftist politicians having armed bodyguards? You want to get rid of the police? I've seen this all before.


I see what you're trying to do with the whole "Women are oppressed" thing. You want to know why nobody takes feminism seriously? Because the movements mindset is "Women have problems but it's society's fault so women can remain the same but the rest of the world must change, but when men have problems, it's men's fault so men need to change." Feminism by the way is a hoax created by cultural marxists to destroy the traditional family. It's funny how women were actually much happier back when they were "oppressed" compared to now "liberated" women who are miserable and nihilistic. But then again you socialists do have a very nihilistic outlook on life, blaming other people for your terrible choices and demanding that successful people simply hand over the wealth they've earned to you simply because they have more, completely ignoring the fact that they have more because they went out and did something with their lives and don't just sit around leeching like you guys do.


You prefer Vaush? What difference does that make? Both Xanderhal and Vaush are rip-offs of another terrible streamer called Destiny anyway and whatever Vaush says Xanderhal will suddenly believe word for word. Vaush says "Chud", "Smoothbrain" and "Wokescold", Xanderhal starts using them, Vaush stops liking Destiny, Xanderhal suddenly doesn't like him either, Vaush makes fun of Thought Slime, Xanderhal suddenly stops being a fan of him. What I find hilarious is that you proudly display being a white knight male feminist when Vaush has been exposed for being a sexual predator, the chat logs of him grooming disabled girls online has been leaked. It's weird how woke males are always sexual predators LOL


Vaush is also equally as terrible as Xanderhal, neither of them work, they both just sit in their bedrooms playing video games all day, they both verbally abuse and block anybody who disagrees with them and they both have lousy hygiene. For God's sake, it's like Vaush's face is permanently coated in a layer of grease and Xanderhal's pizza face is just getting worse and worse. And does it not bother you that Vaush has openly admitted he thinks assaulting policemen is okay and thinks Israel should be bombed?

Heard this last night at the end of "the pursuit of love" - instantly fell in love with it... it makes me happy..there's something about the chord changes, plus the singing plus the words, oh it's divine

Judith Murphy

@Victoria I think when you said "at least not right now"... that might be true for me and her. I think we will be in eachothers lives again one day, but not sure if now is the right time or not.

You're right about meeting new wonderful people. I met my husband which I never thought would happen, especially with my ill health.

Judith Murphy

@Victoria thank you for your lovely comment. We were best friends for a decade. Haven't seen eachother in person since the end of 2019. I reached out since then, sent her a birthday card. That got us back in contact a bit briefly but I wonder if we are just in very different times of our lives now... We are both married and she's got a child. I feel like her main focus is the child now, which is understandable, but I think she's become friends with women who also have children. I'm in a different situation, won't go into details but I've been chronically ill for 8+ years, house-bound etc... My friend was amazing in terms of my poor health, so that's not why we lost touch. I do wonder whether it's just different seasons of life. Although she was the best friend I've had. I've got other friends who are lovely but it's not the same ❤️

Victoria

@Judith Murphy I feel you. I had a best friend like that too, things came between us, I thought I'd lost her forever but then we got back together. Don't give up, reach out to her, be honest with her and tell her how much you miss her..no blame of yourself or her. Maybe you'll become friends again, maybe you won't. Either way know you did your best and if she doesn't come back just let her go and know that it's not meant to be between you, at least not right now. I know the pain 💔 of what you're feeling, I'm so sorry 😞, it's so hard, but I'm sending you love and please know that you are going to be okay. Also, sometimes you meet new wonderful people!

Judith Murphy

I'm just discovering The Pursuit of Love on BBC iPlayer before it's removed. Loved this song at the end of episode 1 ❤️

Really enjoying the series. Love the friendship between Linda & Fanny... I'm 31 years old. I had a best friend, the most wonderful friend ever. Things got between us and we've drifted apart. Watching this series makes me miss her even more and feel like I want to reach out to her...

@Miranda Bentley Totally the 'correct' demographic .... I'm 60!! It is always great to be introduced via TV shows ... I'm still in 'The Pursuit of Love' too!! 😅

Reminds me of how much I love my wife and wish I had met her 20 years earlier than I did. In a word, I love this song.
