Riff: Tegan and Sara – “Guilty As Charged”

Jan 29, 2013

I rethink everything I’ve ever said/Desperate, I still can’t get you out of my head.

from Guilty As Charged lyrics by Tegan and Sara

Making Kylie‘s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” appear a picture of restraint, this twinkling electro-ballad is yet another admission of obsessive love, which with its “I am sure you’ll always be mine” sentiment, suggests the object of their affections may want to take out a restraining order.
