Time To Pretend

Time to pretend – MGMT

I think this was the first song to make me feel consciously old.

A line drawn straight between youth, beauty, florescence, warranted hedonism, and people like me whose time is up and should now step aside. This was something i had no connection with and could have no connection with. A foreignness, alienating and antiquating. I could now give no pretense that i could remain in touch, that i could ever belong, or could ever again, because i was no longer someone who could. It bewildered me. They changed what “it” was.
