Gorillaz Friday The 13th

Today, Gorillaz have continued to unleash the full force of their “Song Machine,” pressing a variety of colour-coded buttons and landing on an Octavian collaboration. The ensuing track is “Friday The 13th,” a smouldering and eighties-inspired anthem. Fueled by vintage synthesizers and a steady bass groove, Octavian scales things back and lays down a smooth melody. “I’ve been drinking and smoking too much, that shit damages,” he admits. “Give me a lot I can do it myself, I can manage it.”

As the song builds in intensity, additional layers begin to manifest, to the point where the arrangement nearly runs the risk of losing control. Yet the Gorillaz are no strangers to this particular dance, and “Friday The 13th” never quite explodes into a chaotic mess. If anything, the additional elements serve to add new harmonic layers, many of which go a long way in enhancing Octavian’s emotional vocals. Provided you’re into the whole modern-day eighties ballad wave, it’s likely you’ll find some pleasure here. Keep an eye out for Gorillaz to continue their “Song Machine” series in the weeks to come.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Octavian]
I been drinkin’ and smokin’ too much, that shit damages
Gimme a lot, I can do it myself, I can manage it
Two Xans, I gotta leave, and you know how it is
You and me, we can take on the world, we can be savages

[Pre-Chorus: Octavian]
I called my dealer, said, “Share the white with all of us” (Light)
I told him, “We’ve been so nice, don’t turn on us” (Don’t turn on us)
Is it funny how the times flies by (Flies by) so fast?
If we do all of these lines, we go up

[Chorus: Octavian]
(Oh) And if I look into your eyes, I make you realize (Oh)
I can realize, oh (I can realize)

[Break: Octavian]
Fuck, I meant to just, rhyme to this (Rap to this)
(Ayy) Ayy, go hard as shit man

[Verse 2: Octavian]
It’s definitely goin’ down (Down)
Find a paigon on the strip, spin him ’round (Spin him ’round)
Big man talkin’ shit ’til we pin him down (Pin him down)
Big man talkin’ shit ’til we lick him down (Until I lick him down)
Far enough, I’ma spin it ’round
Put the big **** in your belly then spin it ’round (Spin it ’round)
You can ask Kembo if I been about
Free him out (Free him out), I don’t need to get the pictures out

[Pre-Chorus: Octavian]
I called my dealer, said, “Share the white with all of us”
I told him, “We’ve been so nice, don’t turn on us” (Don’t turn on us)
Is it funny how the times flies by (Flies by) so fast?
If we do all of these lines (These lines), we go up

[Chorus: Octavian]
(Oh) And if I look into your eyes, I make you realize (Oh)

[Bridge: Octavian]
You know that we can be immortal, immortal
Are you loyal? Yeah (Oh, immortal)
I’m just prayin’ that she loyal, is she loyal? Yeah
We coil, yeah (Is she loyal)
I don’t talk too much, man
Have they got mine?
Cryin’ out finally, and a little mercy (Oh)
I don’t talk too much, man
Came out silent
Came out silent
Came out silent
Came out silent

[Outro: 2D & Octavian]
Oh, it’s a beautiful day (Is she loyal?)
Oh, it’s a beautiful day (Is she loyal? Is she loyal?)
Oh, it’s a beautiful day (Immortal, immortal)
(Oh, it’s a beautiful day) I don’t talk too much, man
Have they got mine?
Cryin’ out finally, and a little mercy
I don’t talk too much, man
Came out silent
 (Immortal)
