Genuinely asking!!

on her new album billie has all these songs that have two different songs in them

like happier than ever except on HTE the two parts feel very connected lyrically and the way it builds up to the second part makes sense musically

but here its like two completely different songs in one

why?

I personally love it, switching things up will keep the listeners interested

Reminded me a bit of what Lorde did on Melodrama. I don't really mind, but I really wish the second part of L'Amour de ma vie was its own full separate song :music:

It’s kind of a signature thing, not the first time she does this. Bad Guy also switches up. 

She also explained something in the recent interviews: Finneas and her started working on songs and put them away once they felt they were blocked and then came back to them later. Like, the songs were all “growing together” as in they had 20% of all of them, 50% of all of them, etc no song was ever finished first. She also said that they do this because they made the songs not thinking anyone would ever hear them, just for themselves. So the structure and all of that is weird but works for them. 

L’amour de ma vie for example, she was working out and felt like she wanted to make music she could dance to so that was an experiment with the second part and they liked it so it stayed.

If you see me posting like crazy, I'm either bored or procrastinating.

I appreciate how Billie and Finneas tend to just make music they like instead of following any formulas or trends.

It's the transitioning into a new song that I'm not keen on. It works great if you're listening to a physical copy or streaming where it automatically hops onto the next track but if you're looking up individual songs or listening to one particular song you like in isolation, it's so obvious that the end is meant to segway into the next and it means it falls flat at the end for you when there's silence afterwards because you were listening in isolation. I can accept that stuff if it leads into or out of an interlude but not into or out of fully fledged songs.

Probably so that the album is a journey, to create an evolution

Imo it's to show the range of the emotion/intent/meaning behind each song.

What is this song about? Does it manifest only acoustically for you, or can it spread into 80's synth rage as well? If each song is a story, is there only one level, one sound, or is there more?

It's just pure genius and shows her versatility and originality as an artist.

I’m not sure what you’re describing and what OT is asking about are the same thing. They’re not talking about one song transitioning into another, they’re talking about one song have two different distinct parts Hard Feelings/Loveless from Melodrama or, for a Billie example, Happier Than Ever.

A song that exists as two forms of itself in a neat transitional way is demonstrably better than a song that's 2:01 long :bear:
