Riff: She & Him – “Somebody Sweet To Talk To”

May 7, 2013

You keep trying to forget about the good times/Does it make you feel a little better

from Somebody Sweet To Talk To lyrics by She & Him

Those who find it hard to stomach Deschanel’s pixie-girl shtick would be best advised to skip this middling stab at 70s AOR for the fact her off-the-wall persona is cranked up to 11 as she pleads with a lover, who perhaps understandably wants a bit of space, to stay just a few more hours; [LISTEN].
