Video: "3AM" by Kate Nash
You should know, I'm an absolute sucker for pop music. You should also know, I'm an absolute sucker for love. Or better put: "love".
In the video, Nash contrasts the feeling of "love" versus the exhilarating release that comes from letting go of "love". "3AM" encapsulates both moments within Nash's joyous melody. The song begins with a self-accelerating punk drive. Nash delivers soft and quivering vocals over the fast-paced snare and kick beat with a femme fatale edge, but the submissive lyrical context:
You are the one I think ofplaces Nash in an equivocating position. I can forgive Nash for her confusion. Like most times in love, we don't really know what we want. Do we want to be strong? Or do we want to submit? Nash's voice calls, "Yooouuu....Yooouu....". Love is a two person game.
All the night
And all the night it feels so right
I miss your arms
The way you kiss me
The way you pull me in so tight
But I want you so bad tonight
