Day 68: According To You

When me and my family went to watch the “This Is It” documentary, I was immediately turned into an Orianthi-fan.  She’s so cool, you know.  I mean, it’s not everyday I get to see someone rocking it out the way she does it.  So, when she and Alison sang a duet on American Idol a few years back, I was ecstatic.

I knew she had an album out but I never did try to find where I could get one.  When my dad finally gave in to the urge to buy the Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock bundle (the one with the drums, the mic, and the guitar), I managed to listen (and play) Orianthi’s “Suffocated” (that’s the title of her song there) and I knew, at that moment, I had to give my hundred percent in finding the said album.

It took a while but the “hard work” paid off as I now have her album, Believe.

The moment I put on my earphones and played the tracks from her album, I knew I was hooked.  Her first song immediately became my favorite and I think I could very well understand and connect with the song.  This song, the first song from her album, is our sixty-eight song and is entitled According to You.

The song is so upbeat and so rock-ish that I liked it.  It’s not the screechy kind of rock, though.  It’s more like an Avril-Lavigne-Pop-Rock kinda thing.

Anyways, I liked it and I wanted to share to you guys the awesomeness that is Orianthi.  You can buy her album off of iTunes and even on a music store near you.  Below are the lyrics to the song.

Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

According to you I’m stupid, I’m useless
I can’t do anything right
According to you I’m difficult, hard to please
Forever changing my mind

I’m a mess in a dress, can’t show up on time
Even if it would save my life
According to you, according to you

But according to him I’m beautiful, incredible
He can’t get me out of his head
According to him I’m funny, irresistible
Everything he ever wanted

Everything is opposite, I don’t feel like stopping it
So baby tell me what I got to lose
He’s into me for everything I’m not
According to you

According to you I’m boring, I’m moody
And you can’t take me any place
According to you I suck at telling jokes
‘Cause I always give it away

I’m the girl with the worst attention span
You’re the boy who puts up with that
According to you, according to you

But according to him I’m beautiful, incredible
He can’t get me out of his head
According to him I’m funny, irresistible
Everything he ever wanted

Everything is opposite, I don’t feel like stopping it
So baby tell me what I got to lose
He’s into me for everything I’m not
According to you

I need to feel appreciated
Like I’m not hated, oh no
Why can’t you see me through his eyes?
It’s too bad, you’re making me dizzy

But according to me you’re stupid, you’re useless
You can’t do anything right

But according to him I’m beautiful, incredible
He can’t get me out of his head
According to him I’m funny, irresistible
Everything he ever wanted

Everything is opposite, I don’t feel like stopping it
Baby tell me what I got to lose
He’s into me for everything I’m not
According to you, you
According to you, you

According to you I’m stupid, I’m useless
I can’t do anything right
