Tunesday: "Tokyo" by Teen

Although I cannot understand a single word sung in this song, and all of my hunting for lyrics online has proven fruitless, "Tokyo" by Teen has been stuck in my head all week long.

According to the review of this song on NPR's Songs We Love. "Tokyo"  is a song about "a crumbling marriage and infidelity".. not that you can tell from how catchy and pop-y it is.

There is something about the irregularity of this song that makes it so irresistible. Once you think you get a sense of how the section goes, its a little different the next time through. I'm a sucker for a song like that.

Take a listen and let me know what you think. Was this week's song a hit or a miss?
