'Cause I Like You

Dandy Warhols
"Bohemian Like You"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: A few days ago, Jake loaded up his iPod mini with a playlist of 34 songs that he wanted me to listen to. This was song #17, and I didn't get past it for a few hours because I played it over and over and over. Yep - obsessed with it. This is the second Dandy Warhols song I've become absolutely smitten with upon first listen (the first was "We Used To Be Friends"). I love the lines Just a casual, casual easy thing. It isn't? It is for me best - such an unbelieveable kiss off.

Youíve got a great car
Yeah, whatís wrong with it today?
I used to have one too
Maybe youíll come and have a look
I really love your hairdo, yeah
Iím glad you like my do
See weíre looking pretty cool, getcha

So what do you do?
Oh yeah I wait tables too
No I havenít heard your band
'Cause you guys are pretty new
But if you dig on vegan food
Well come over to my work
Iíll have them cook you something that youíll really love

'Cause I like you
Yeah, I like you
And Iím feelin' so bohemian like you
Yeah, I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I feel
Wahoo - woo!

Wait
Whoís that guy
Just hanging at your pad
Heís looking kinda blah
Yeah, you broke up thatís too bad
I guess itís fair if he always pays the rent
And he doesnít get bent about
Sleeping on the couch when Iím there

'Cause I like you
Yeah, I like you
And Iím feelin' so bohemian like you
Yeah, I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I feel
Wahoo - woo!

Iím getting wise
And Iím feeling so bohemian like you
Itís you that I want so please
Just a casual, casual easy thing
It isnít? It is for me

And I like you
Yeah I like you
And I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
I like you, I like you, I like you
And I feel
Wahoo - woo!

This is one of my all-time favorite songs. It reminds me of a younger time when all the kids were trying to out-cool each other by being weirder/more alternative/more rockin/whatever. I think it's hilarious. "No, I haven't heard your band, 'cause you guys are really new." "I really dig your hairdo, yeah. I'm glad you like mine, too. See, we're lookin' pretty cool."

Plus, it's totally danceable and addictive as fuck.

I was searching for this song (didn't know the title) and I found your site.
I've been astonished to find a complete mp3 file after clicking the "Listen" link!
Thank you!
