‘Blue Lips’ by Tove Lo, I have to title this Narrative with the obvious words?

Believe it or not, but I always feel bad when I have to resort to clichés or common places to describe a person, their jobs or situations. I do not know, I feel very ordinary and unintelligent, but sometimes it is impossible not to do it because the brain is full of all those words and phrases that, although they sound obvious and too heard and said by all it is inevitable to resort to them. It is perhaps because of the ease that these prefabricated phrases give us to express what we feel or simply because of mental laziness, but in this case it is because I do not find a better way of saying it; So, here I go: the album Blue Lips by Tove Lo, is To Be Loved. Do you see? I know it sounds very obvious and maybe ridiculous, but it's the truth! Between 2014 and 2015 I came across one or two songs by this Swedish singer, I saw some of her videos and it seemed to me one more. I did not follow her tracks because I came to think that she would soon disappear from the scene and I did not hear from her again until I came across Blue Lips. Of course, at first, I caught the attention to see the cover of the album: a pair of good buttocks wearing a suggestive thong, held with her hand with passion, and certain rudeness in an attitude of inviting something else. And that was what I thought in principle about what I would find in the songs of the album: themes impregnated with eroticism and a good rhythm, but nothing more. How wrong I was! When I came to the fourth song, "Shivering Gold" I said: "what !!!!", this is to be taken very seriously. Before moving on to the song that I just mentioned, in the first 3 tracks, Tove Lo took me to a very disco atmosphere, still at that moment I thought it was good music to dance, it had everything that is needed: a perfect selection of arrangements and sequences with a great depth in the basses that animate anyone even in the most boring disc of a cruise. But, I insist, getting to "Shivering Gold" opened my eyes as to how wrong I was about the idea that had formed me around this artist in the past. Sometimes this type of mistakes cost me to lose true jewels, just because of the prejudices I have about certain musical styles. But, fortunately, this time it was not like that and I was able to recover everything that I had missed from this interpreter and composer who, for me, already belongs to the big leagues.
