This song is from 2006, but I thought about it in the middle of the night and had to write about it. I’ve always loved Sean Lennon’s album Friendly Fire, especially the song “Spectacle”. He also made a short film out of the album’s music (I can’t find the whole version on the internet anywhere. Come on, SL!)
At the time when the album came out in 2006, he dated/was hanging out with Lindsay Lohan (the good years: Think red hair, nice teeth and well before TV movies). And for some reason, whether true or not, I like to think this song is about her, because it fits her public persona so well.
Well I thought you were shallow/but then I fell in deep/why couldn’t you keep it our little secret/you’re my only weakness
You’re always such a spectacle/Guess it was the best you could do/Your favorite dress for the world to see through/ you spilled your drink but you didn’t mean to
Doesn’t that fit our Lilo perfectly?! Whether or not it’s about her, the lyrics definitely emulate the spectacle that has become Lindsay Lohan, even in 2006 when she was an It girl instead of (cringe) “Shit, gurl..!!”
