Title: Rocky Took a Lover
Artist: Bell X1
Rocky Took a Lover is one of those songs that you like without meaning to, with its quirky lyrics and interesting choice of instruments for a primarily soft rock group. It uses soft tinkling xylophones/bells, juxtaposed against a primary background of electronic guitars and bass to create an ethereal, dont-know-what-to-make-of-it tone. The lyrics, typically, don’t seem to make a lot of sense, especially when viewed with its even more quirky music video, and the only connection I can seem to make is that the cartoonish characters look like rocks, hence, er, the title of “Rocky”, who is, er, romancing another stone-like toon.
