"After sex, the bitter taste. Been fooled again, the search continues."
Another weekend in the city over, another night in bed alone. Well if you count pizza I guess I wasn’t alone, but as for actual, animate, inedible, dairy free beings, I was alone. But enough of my white girl problems.
"Kreuzberg" by Bloc Party is a song that addresses the feeling of loneliness pretty well. A song about looking for love in a city (in this case Berlin), finding somebody to fuck, and waking up knowing that it was a mistake. A real 21st Century heartbreak song. Written about frontman Kele Okereke’s botched experiences of looking for love with other men, "Kreuzberg" is a song that really pulls at the heart strings of anybody, straight, gay or bi, that has looked for love in all the wrong places. I’m sure there are plenty of you out there that woke up this morning feeling what Kele is singing about. Hopefully you woke up next to a person and not pizza though.
