What Does A Stepford Wife Song Sound Like?

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

You may be wondering, is it Music for Washing and Ironing?

Perhaps you fancy some songs quoted in Mad Men, especially Astrud Gilberto’s Agua de Beber. What could be more perfect than falling in love with your washing machine?

But here is one we’ve always taken a shine to:

The Primitives’ I’ll Stick With You

Witness the great Stepford like lyrics: (Music and lyrics by Paul Court. He writes the words, she (Tracy Tracy) sings them. Just the way it should be!

Noise from the city drives me off my head
Wish you could fly away
Rain comin’ down from the sky
Colder than yesterday

I’ve seen places fall apart
Same thing with people too
Don’t wanna be here when it gets dark

Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you

Hey
(x3)

Noise from the city drives me off my head
Wish you could fly away
Give me your hand a guiding light
I’ll do anything you say

I’ve seen places fall apart
Same thing with people too
Don’t wanna be here when it gets dark

Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you
Think I’ll stick with you

Hey
(x3)

Think I’ll stick with you
(repeat)
