Song Lyric Sunday – O.D.D.

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is “odd” or “even”. This one wasn’t easy as there were quite a few to choose from on my playlists. I listened to a few before settling on Hey Violet’s O.D.D.

Hey Violet in not my normal chosen genre of music, however, the lyrics to this song are what drew me. Especially that it reminds me it is okay to be different. I don’t have many memories of high school anymore (it was a really long time ago) but I don’t remember being a part of a clique or dressing to conform. I didn’t care what others thought of me.

Hey Violet was formed in 2008 under the name Cherrie Bomb and the genre of music at that time was hard rock (more my speed). They are an all female band. In 2013, the band parted ways with their then-lead singer, Julia Pierce, citing creative differences, although Julia Pierce disagreed. The remaining members, Rena and Nia Lovelis (sisters) and Casey Moreta rebranded the band as Hey Violet in 2015. The genre is now considered to be pop/punk.

This particular song was released in 2017, and Rena Lovelis, the now-frontwoman, has stated this the song emphasizes that it is okay to be yourself, to have your own opinions and voice and never apologize for that. Rena also stated that all of us feel out of place and alone sometimes, and that is okay. It is what makes us human.

I was raised by a mom
Who told me I should never listen to another voice
But my own
Now I’ve grown up, now I know
That when I’m tryna be myself it isn’t so simple
Anymore
Some days I wake up I just wanna hide under the covers
‘Cause no matter what I do I’ll never be like all the others
I’m a little O.D.D
Most people really don’t get me
I’m the girl in the back of the class
Blank stare, don’t care, don’t ask
I’m a little O.D.D
I see the way they look at me
I can hear it when they talk that trash
Saying “Any minute she gon’ crack”
(Ooh)
My sister, bless her heart
She was the only one who had my back when everyone
Else did not
Looking back, it’s crazy
I almost turn into the person people told me I
I should be
Some days I wake up I just wanna hide under the covers
‘Cause no matter what I do
I’ll never be like all the others
Because…I’m a little O.D.D
Most people really don’t get me
I’m the girl in the back of the class
Pink hair but I’m wearing all black
I’m a little O.D.D
I see the way they look at me
I can hear it when they talk that trash
Saying “Any minute she gon’ crack”
I’m a little O.D.D
I see the way they look at me
I can hear it when they talk that trash
Saying “Any minute she gon’ crack”
I’m a little O.D.D
Most people really don’t get me
I’m the girl in the back of the class
Fuck bitches, get money, blow cash
I’m a little O.D.D
Most people really don’t get me
Oh

    1. Oh yes, I know. I don’t think that is what she was going for however, I believe she intended to spell out ODD. I remember many, many years ago, we suspected this disorder with one of my nieces. She was never diagnosed and outgrew her defiance.
