Going For A Song: ‘It Means I Love You’

Jessy Lanza – It Means I Love You

If I want to give myself an underhand compliment this week I’d say my knowledge of music can make me quite lazy when it comes to writing about it. Instantly I reached for easy comparisons when I started listening to ‘Never Enough’: New Order in that opening beat, and early Madonna in those vocals – this at the expense of pushing myself to say something decent. But what I found, and one of the elements I really like about this song is that, as if aware of my laziness, it keeps shifting, so as soon as my comparisons settle they are trod around and about by the dancing everyone is doing.
