I love Antony and the Johnsons as you will know if you follow 50odd each day.
I love them mostly because of their bravery.
And the music of course.
I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy.
‘I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy’ is a song with a beautiful melody and production.
It’s as captivating as a live performance as it is in the studio version.
I am not sure what it is about.
Some think it’s about being in love with someone that is ‘dead inside’ so they can’t love you back.
Some think it’s referencing Anohni’s personal journey.
Anohni formerly was male and has now transitioned.
I love how Anohni is creating in a very personal way.
Telling the stories she wants to tell.
No matter how strange they are.
Strange is embraced.
The title of this song would, I assume, be received with puzzlement from a commercially minded music promoter.
But Anohni is staying true to her art.
And I really like that.
Because so many people do not.
The song appears alongside this story at the 50odd website.
