I die way before Methuselah
So I'll fight sleep with Ammonia
And every morning with eyes all red
I'll miss them for the tears they shed

But I'm actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted

I miss prosthesis and mended souls
Trample over beauty while singing their thoughts
I match them with my euphoria
When they said, "Je suis plus folle que toi."

But I'm actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted

Nous et la man on est de sortie
Pire qu'une simple moitié on compte à demi-demi
Pile sur un des bas côtés comme des origamis
Le bras tendu paraît cassé tout n'est qu'épis et éclis
Ces enfants bizarres
Crachés dehors comme par hasard
Cachant l'effort dans le griffoir
Et une creepy song en étendard qui fait:

I'm doing my face
With magic marker
I'm in my right place
Don't be a downer
I'm doing my face
With magic marker
I'm in my right place
Don't be a downer

I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted

I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I am actually good
Can't help it if we
I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted

I am actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted

Bill, please! This version is nice, sure. It's a six in a t-shirt.

But the French version is a nine in a tiara .
Interesting picture on the Wiki tab. Looks like she is giving a Ted Talk™, not singing. 

Also, that odd third arm sprouting from her right hip....
First time hearing this one, going with an initial rating of 7, which is a +1 from my default initial 'new to my ears' rating system. 

I like the beat the best, and the French lyrics are cool too. 

Long Live RP!!

As soon as I heard the opening riff I was reminded of the very same performance, and am amazed to find that it was back in 2016 - 8 years ago!

I've long known that music can transport one's emotions back to a particular point in time, but this example has just blown me away.

Great to hear Christine and the Queens here on RP.  Let's get some more songs in the mix.  Her Chris album contains some great songs.  Suggest:  5 Dollars, Girlfriend, Doesn't Matter, and Comme Si.



My first exposure to her music was on Late Show with Stephen Colbert and a few weeks later on the Late Late Show with James Corden (both aired in 2020, iirc).  Both times she sang "People I've been Sad" and both times she stopped me dead in my tracks - she's AMAZING!

Moi aussi !!!
Great video to this tune!
Incredible dancing on the video too

Catchy groove...a welcome addition.  Eight outta the gate...
Christine opened for Florence and the Machine at Red Rocks, May 20, 2019, during a freakin' blizzard for the entire show. Only saw the last couple songs of her performance, but she captivated the crowd and received a very enthusiastic response. I really enjoyed her and wish we had gotten there sooner to see the whole set. 
Really like this singer !
Great to see this here. I'm a real fan of Chris/Christine. Massive talent and exellent quality of music production.
I had the pleasure of catching Christine and the Queens during an episode of Later...with Jools Holland and then was given a chance to go to a show shortly thereafter.  Delightful and fun to groove to.  Thank you for adding this into the rotation!
Really a fan - there's some other good tracks in their catalog!~
