Lyrics taken from genius.com

True, it’s a dance, we know the moves
The bow, the dip, the woo
Though the words are true
The state is old news

Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but
Rock me in your arms
I can’t feel it but

Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Feel the turn of rotation and stop
See the net one waiting
Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Get up
Sentiment’s the same but the pair of fee change

I know my words will dry upon the skin
Just like a name I remember hearing

Wild winters, warm coffee
Mom’s gone, do you love me?
Blazing summer, cold coffee
Baby’s gone, do you love me?

Wrap me in your arms
I can’t feel it but
Rock me in your arms
I can’t feel it but

Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Feel the turn of rotation and stop
See the net one waiting
Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Get up
Sentiment’s the same but the pair of fee change

Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Feel the turn of rotation and stop
See the net one waiting
Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Get up
Sentiment’s the same but the pair of fee change

My baby does the hanky-panky, baby
My baby does
(Rock me)
My baby does the hanky-panky, baby
(In your arms)
My baby does

Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Feel the turn of rotation and stop
See the net one waiting
Get up, get down
Get up, get down
Get up
Sentiment’s the same but the pair of fee change

“Coffee”, by electronic pop duo Sylvan Esso, is a song I stumbled upon thanks to a vinyl record website’s monthly mix-tapes back in 2014. Comprised of singer Amelia Meath and producer Nick Sanborn, Sylvan Esso has emerged into more mainstream success thanks to their unique blend of pop electronica. This track describes the process of trying to find love, using the analogy of a dance with changing partners to represent what can seem to be a perpetual struggle to find someone worth loving wholly. Meath’s voice is pleasant to the ears atop Sanborn’s production, which heavily features programming and creates a mellow, yet upbeat song that is catchy in its simplicity and repetition.
