ALL SONGS

Panini - Lil Nas X

The Experience: Just say to me what you want from me... They say they're at your service, but their attitude says you're at theirs...
The Vibe: Smug.
The Topic: Relationships.
The Value: Availability.
The Tension: Just say to me what you want from me (I'm at your service - you're at the center of this relationshipVS. I got fans (I'm the big dog you should feel lucky to have interested in you).

Music video: Lil Nas X, at the top of his game and the top of his world, pursues a girl. He's annoyingly persistent. But he can't get her attention until he stops offering what he has, and starts paying attention to her dreams. Only then does she smile.

The Meaning of Panini: The song is a mix between smug satisfaction - the vibe that permeates the tone and lyrics - and an honest offer to be there for someone. Lyrically and musically the smug satisfaction wins - doubtful that she'll consider his offer. But the music video suggests that as insufferable as he is, he actually cares.

The song also samples Nirvana's In Bloom, but according to Lil Nas, that was an accident - he came up with the tune on his own, and then discovered Nirvana had already been there before him.


Ask yourself: Actions speak louder than words, but your attitude trumps both. What do you transmit?

EP: 7 - 2019

LYRICS:


Daytrip took it to 10 (Hey)

Ayy, Panini, don't you be a meanie
Thought you wanted me to go up
Why you tryna keep me teeny? I
It's a dreamy, wished it on a genie
I got fans finally, ain't you wanting them to see me? I

I thought you want this for my life
For my life
Said you wanted to see me thrive
You lied

Just say to me
What you want from me
Just say to me
What you want from me

Ay, Panini, don't you be a meanie
Thought you wanted me to go up
Why you tryna keep me teeny now?
Now they need me, number one on streaming
Oh, yeah, you used to love me
So what happened, what's the meaning? I

I thought you want this for my life
For my life
Said you wanted to see me thrive
You lied

Now when it's all done, I get the upper hand
I need a big Benz, not another fan
But I still want you as a fan
I'ma need to sit down, don't mean to make demands
But I need you to

Say to me
What you want from me
Just say to me
What you want from me

Daytrip took it to 10 (Hey)
