“Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole”

“Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole” by Martha Wainwright:

Song I happened across this evening while watching season 3 of the show “Orange Is the New Black.” Struck me enough to stop and look it up and to track down the lyrics.

Probably deserves to be stated here that I don’t always (or usually) hear the lyrics of a song correctly, as was the case when first listening to this one. I interpreted it initially as saying “aren’t you glad I’m not a fucking asshole,” which was all I was able to make out, hence why it was a difficult song for me to track down. Heard it wrong. Totally different than what I had in mind initially, but still interesting nevertheless.

Update 6/26/2015: Dawns on me also that no one can read my mind and so it should be stated that I do recognize this song’s lyrics as crude. But sometimes crude stuff with artistic value can serve a purpose. Sometimes. Not always. I view this one more as novelty-of-sorts. Wouldn’t care to listen to it aside from on rare occasions beyond the day I first stumbled across it. Her vocals sound good though.

Just struck me while watching my show, in the scene where Bennett drives away in the end. Rarely did I normally track series, that is until recent years and since I’ve watched all of “Breaking Bad,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” most of the older “Robot Chicken” episodes, all of “Desperate Housewives” (that one was actually at my former’s suggestion, which I did get into), and now all of “Orange is the New Black.” (Not to mention my ongoing appreciation for the old show “In the Heat of the Night,” but I don’t seek it out on Netflix).

“Orange Is the New Black” introduces some really cool tunes that I intend to track down more of to post up on here eventually.
