Citáty St. Vincent

„I enjoyed, and I tried to soak up and learn everything as fast as I could from doing any kind of music. It's good to have a gig.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I enjoyed, and I tried to soak up and learn everything as fast as I could from doing any kind of music. It's good to have a gig. If you're a musician, it's good to be working. I love doing all of it, but Marry Me is my baby, St. Vincent is my child.

„If I could substitute another drug to be consumed in the country as much as alcohol is, it would be helium from children's birthday party balloons. Try not laughing when someone sounds like a chipmunk!“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: The drug issue is hard to separate from a class issue, an education issue, a wonky foreign policy issue, and a race issue. What I do know is, be it caffeine, alcohol, cocaine, or adrenaline, let's face it: people like to get high. From Starbucks to Budweiser to your own brain, everybody's a pusher these days. If I could substitute another drug to be consumed in the country as much as alcohol is, it would be helium from children's birthday party balloons. Try not laughing when someone sounds like a chipmunk!

„I was kind of doing this before I did anything else.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: The first thing I did when I picked up any instrument, when I was five years old, was write a song. It's kind of funny; I thought about it, statements that it's a "solo effort" — it's kind of like, "Oh, well I've been doing this since I was five." I was kind of doing this before I did anything else.

„They always want more — they want more.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: Romeo, where'd you go? It's been years and still no sign, But I'm keeping hope alive. Juliet, how you been? You look like death like you sure could use some rest from this place human racing and the faces of people who pound at your door They always want more — they want more. "Human Racing"

„I think anyone who is creative or self-aware in any way, there’s like a humility to it, or I should say a humiliation to it.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I think anyone who is creative or self-aware in any way, there’s like a humility to it, or I should say a humiliation to it. But there’s also a self-delusion — the provisional ego, as my uncle would call it. The self-delusion is the thing that makes you go, oh you know what, all the music that I’ve ever loved in the world, I want to be a part of that — hey, listen to what I have to say, it’s really important, it’s going to matter.” You can’t apologize your way into people’s hearts... You have to go full force.

„I read the signs,
I got all my stars aligned“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I read the signs, I got all my stars aligned, My amulets, my charms, I set all my false alarms, So I'll be someone Who won't be forgotten. "All My Stars Aligned"

„I always looked at any instrument as just a tool, an expressive voice to write with.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I always looked at any instrument as just a tool, an expressive voice to write with. It even differs from guitar to guitar. Some guitars demand that you play them delicately and really respect the instrument, and some beg to be abused. Same with piano. I know with guitar, I'm intimate with it enough to know when I put my fingers here, it will sound like this. I prefer writing on piano because it's always a surprise. As quoted in [http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2007/07/the-popwatch-in.html "The PopWatch Interview: St. Vincent's Annie Clark" in PopWatch (11 July 2007)]

„So I was, 'Well, okay, if you insist…“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I was recording with The Polyphonic Spree, recording The Fragile Army, and we were holed up in January in Minnesota at our studio. They called Mike in to play, and we just hit it off, in a really, really special way. Actually, the night after meeting and having a conversation with him, I sat down and I wrote "All My Stars Aligned". And I just kind of had an idea, "Wouldn't it be amazing if Mike Garson played? So the guy who played solo in Aladdin Sane, wouldn't it be amazing if this guy played this song?" And I wrote it, based on a conversation we had, but I didn't want to ask him, because I felt shy, and nervous, and everything. It was a few months later, actually, we kind of got in touch, and, 'Oh, what are you doing?', and I sent him a couple songs that I was working on. I sent him "Your Lips Are Red" and I sent him "All My Stars Aligned", just to show, you know, 'wink-wink, hint-hint, this is what I'm doing.' And he wrote me back, the things that we'd said, and asked to play on the record. So I was, 'Well, okay, if you insist…' That worked out pretty miraculously.

„A lot of the songs have a duality about them; one part is totally sincere, and there's another part that is kind of smirking and making light of it all.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: A lot of the songs have a duality about them; one part is totally sincere, and there's another part that is kind of smirking and making light of it all. Or there's a very dark streak about it. On her album Marry Me, as quoted in "The PopWatch Interview: St. Vincent's Annie Clark" in PopWatch (11 July 2007)

„What me worry? I never do.
Life is one charming ruse for us lucky few.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: What me worry? I never do. Life is one charming ruse for us lucky few. Have I fooled you, dear? The time is coming near when I'll give you my hand and I'll say, "It's been grand, but... I'm out of here I'm out of here" "What Me Worry?"

„I'm convinced that, as great as that record sounds, if you had anyone else sing it, you know, anyone else try to kind of weave and make it do that thing where it burns like wildfire and it comes alive, no one else could do it.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I'm convinced that, as great as that record sounds, if you had anyone else sing it, you know, anyone else try to kind of weave and make it do that thing where it burns like wildfire and it comes alive, no one else could do it. It's incredible the way she kind of brings this cold arctic atmosphere, It's just like fire, you know? It's like all aaarh coming out of her mouth. … and now I'm listening to the song in my head. "Do you know what I really need? Do you know what I really need? I need lalalala yea yo yea yo your love." On the song "The Hounds of Love"

„Lover, I don’t play to win but for the thrill until I’m spent.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: Lover, I don’t play to win but for the thrill until I’m spent. Paint the black hole blacker. Paint the black hole blacker "The Strangers" - [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAX3P1ueR6w Live @ Great American Music Hall (27 February 2009)]

„Good souls have born better sons,
Better souls born worse ones.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: Good souls have born better sons, Better souls born worse ones. Paint the black hole blacker... "The Strangers"

„All my old friends aren't so friendly
And all my old haunts are now haunting me.“

— St. Vincent (musician)
Context: I traded my plot of land for a plane to anywhere Oh where did you go. And I can't see the future but I know it's watching me. All my old friends aren't so friendly And all my old haunts are now haunting me. "Laughing with a Mouth of Blood"
