Now that I work in the office from 8(ish) to 5(ish), I often go home for my lunch hour. While I was eating my leftover potato and cauliflower curry yesterday, I turned on Logo’s NewNowNext PopLab to watch a couple of videos while I ate. “Lose You” by Peaches was one of the videos that came on while I was home. I immediately fell in love: 

“Lose You” is not only my song of the week; it’s also in contention for a spot on my year-end list of favorite songs and videos for the year. I love the simplicity of the video, its homemade feel, and the fact that it just keeps visually expanding and expanding. The backup dancers are fabulous. 

When I got back to the office, I downloaded Peaches’s album, I Feel Cream. I love it too. Soon, I’m sure I’ll be getting into her previous music. 

Peaches is an f-ing genius! 

Here are the lyrics: 

I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you

How does it happen
All of a sudden
fingertip button
Push it and nothin
How does it happen
All of a sudden
Can’t fight the feelin
Someone just stealin’

I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you

Touch on the surface
I’ve lost the purpose
Hittin’ the ceilin’
No more concealing
Why does it crossing
Turning and dancing
Tossing and turning
your insides are burning

I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose youu
I dont wanna lose you

Ooh Oh
Ooh Oh
OOh Oh Oh
Come over here
Or do we stay clear
Theres nothing to fear
Except when were near
I got a bad additude
I’m changin my mood
I wanna bring you
But its not true
Ooooh Ooooh Oh Oh

I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
I dont wanna lose you
