Emo Song Of The Week “Perfect Lie” The Engine Room
I love this song. The beat and the music kind of pull you in, like hypnosis or a trance. All those Nip/Tuck fans out there will recognize it, and the first video. It’s their theme song, and that’s how I first heard it. They fit so well together, the song’s about trying to be completely perfect and the show’s about Plastic Surgeons. I saw the season premiere last Wednesday, it made me think of this song and their opening credits…if only mannequins actually could turn into real people. I always picture that John Hughes movie from the 80s with Kelly LeBrock. Weird Science: when the two nerds build the “perfect woman” using barbie dolls, hocus pocus and cutting-edge 1985 gadgetry. We can manufacture the “perfect face” or the “perfect abs” now, but what if we really could engineer people? No doubt, it’ll be seen sometime this century… From Dr. Frankenstein to Dr. Christian Troy.
I came across a Final Fantasy version of the video, it’s definitely creepy and emo.
