I’ve Got My Father’s Eyes
This is the kind of song Andrew Falkous was put on this earth to write and sing: A hyper-masculine and aggressive tune that is basically about feeling horrible about male privilege while knowing that mindless, natural lust will always get in the way of good intentions. There’s so much guilt, ambivalence, and self-loathing in this song, and the big dumb AC/DC style riff in the first half is pointed self-parody, as if to grudgingly admit “I’m just so bro caveman.”
