[Super-Secret Friday Night 5-Minute Dance Party] Are You Satisfied?

 

 

If you watch a few Marina & the Diamonds videos, you will see right away that Marina (Lambrini Diamandis) is a quick study.

I look at this song particularly, and I think to myself— it is as if she consumed all the public volumes of Kate Bush, and all the public volumes of Madonna, and mixed the whole mess up with some mad crazy ambition and then added a big splash of peroxide.

And that, my friends, is Marina & the Diamonds, to date.

  1. One of my favorites…thanks BB for finding this lovely live gem. This gal don’t need no stinkin’ auto-tuning…love her gnarly, sweet, swoopy voice.

    I appreciate her lyrics greatly. They’re self-absorbed, but about other interesting things than a mere broken heart in the love arena.
