Blue Period Picasso by Peter Bjorn and John

I tend to get songs stuck in my head quite easily, so I’m always humming and singing to myself. As I was listening to Living Thing, Peter Bjorn and John’s new album, I realized that I kept humming their song Blue Period Picasso.

The song is about a one of Picasso’s painting from his blue period, from the perspective of the painting. The painting feels that it deserves more recognition, that it’s still a beautiful painting. The painting starts to dream of someone coming and stealing it off the wall in Barcelona that it’s sitting on, and how they’d be famous throughout the land.

It’s a really cute song, with a great little beat and clever words.


P.S. Can someone make me an awesome remix of this for me? If I like it a lot and it makes me dance I’ll post it for everyone to hear.
