I was scrolling through my YouTube homepage and I saw an official video for the track ‘you should see me in a crown’. The song is a lead single from Billie Eilish’s debut album ‘WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’. For today’s Lyrics Review, we have ‘you should see me in a crown’ by Billie Eilish. Let’s do this.
‘you should see me in a crown’ lyrics review
Billie Eilish has always been able to fascinate me by her music and the dark aesthetics that fit perfectly with the lyrics in her videos. Nevertheless, the music video for ‘you should see me in a crown’ didn’t disappoint me either as the lyrics of the song blend in perfectly with the music video.
Looking At Verse 2
Tell me which one is worse
Living or dying first
Billie Eilish is only 17 as of now and her taste in dark aesthetics is probably the only reason how the depressed young kids are able to relate themselves with her. The messages behind her music are usually “mental health is not a joke”, “anyone can become a victim of depression” and “it’s okay to feel sad”. Billie is able to intimidate grown people by her lyrics as well. So, to young Billie Eilish fans out there, you guys have good taste in today’s music.
The construction of music is haunting. In the lyrics from the chorus of ‘you should see me in a crown’, there is a part:
One by one by one
One by one by one
This part blends in with the beats used in this track perfectly. The visual effects used for this track are explaining these words accurately.
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
In the second part of the chorus, the lyrics touch the title of the song, ‘you should see me in a crown’. In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Billie Eilish reveals that they got an idea for a song from a popular BBC TV show, Sherlock. When a character named Moriarty says “you should see me in a crown”, Billie Eilish looked at his brother and they both knew what song they were coming up with next.
You say, “Come over, baby
I think you’re pretty”
I’m okay, I’m not your baby
The lyrics from the bridge of this song act as strong defence mechanism for her self-esteem. When someone tries to get close to you by a few flatters, you should be aware of who you’re dealing with. Billie tries her best to convey the message to the people that you shouldn’t get excited over someone’s calculated flattering words before you know the true intentions behind those words.
Music Composition, Video & Lyrics
Both the track and the music video are extremely well produced. The beats from this track follow the chord progression. The groovy bass in the chorus section makes both song and the music video sound and look amazing respectively. Although, I’d very much prefer to see Billie Eilish being Billie Eilish rather than her being a cartoon or an anime character.
The song is suitable for people, especially for the teeangers, whose self-esteem practically doesn’t exist. The song is empowering, questioning and is absolutely haunting. I am glad that at 17, Billie is able to put so many musical recipe to the table by her music.
I give ‘you should see me in a crown’ by Billie Eilish a decent 06/10 in the Lyrics Review category.
