Ever watched High School movies that usually portray the different types of students present in the school. Well if you have, you would agree with me that Billie Eilish qualifies as that misunderstood weird girl. They are feared and at the same time made jest of. They feared because they do odd things; gothic, Satan worship, or just straight up keep to themselves. Until a group of cool girls (prom queen’s clique) pick on her, probably because her (the prom queen) boyfriend stands up for the girl whenever she’s being taunted by his jock squad. Him probably being the Quarterback, lives next to her, maybe talked before puberty set in and he became the cool kid and she, well, disappeared into the crowd. Quarterback resumes communication with her after an incident; she fell in the public or she was being made jest of by cool girls at the cafeteria, he helps her and slowly, they begin to reconnect, start visiting each other and catching up on all they’ve been up to since they last hung out when they were much younger (before High School). The Prom Queen gets jealous and uncomfortable about the situation and turns up the heat on tormenting weird girl, whilst Quarterback sees beyond the façade created by weird girl that she’s all soft and gooey on the inside, grows to like her, but hey, he has a girlfriend and he’s not about to end that, rather, he’d cherish her friendship. Quarterback then notices the intensity of torment from his girlfriend on the weird girl, which eventually leads to their breakup. He continues to enjoy weird girl’s company, finds out she actually likes to write poems or paint or like to make music as a means of escape and expression, and for that, he begins to actually respect her, have feelings for her. Slow and steady, they share a kiss, they begin dating, and well, they fall in love, puppy love. That’s how a perfect story or movie would go, but hey, we don’t live in a perfect world. Billie Eilish is the weird girl who just wants to express herself, isn’t bothered about what anyone thinks of her, enjoys a relationship with the coolest kid in school and in the real world, he broke her heart, she went all out to talk about her pain in don’t smile at me. The album is simply the pain of a teenager from most likely her first break up. It seems more appropriate to say listening to the album is synonymous to reading a teenager’s diary; the pain section though, where she talks about how she’s feeling, how much she loved him, how he betrayed her love, how she wishes to at least cause him some pain for this betrayal. Billie’s style of music is an interesting one, Alternative is what its called, breaks normal rules of music. She’s just someone who does music for herself and not for the audience or commercial success. Most songs on the album are under 3 minutes and that’s because as soon as the vocals are done, the song ends immediately; No elongation of beat, just an abrupt stop, which even got me more on her train. Her delivery could be better as she seems to swallow her words sometimes and other times I zoned out because it required too much concentration, yes, exam level concentration to be able to get words she keeps on swallowing. Some lines on the album were very impressive though, and it had me amazed at her potential; such metaphors at her age were just very impressive. The line in “idontwannabeyouanymore” “If teardrops were bottled, there will be swimming pools filled by Models” was the most impressive of them all to me, though it took a few for me to decode if it was either there or they. Well, it’s her first album, I just hope her second album was an improvement to her delivery style. Overall though, you get used to her delivery and enjoy the song.
