VÉRITÉ – Weekend (Penguin Prison Remix)
Weekend romance in your 20’s is the summer fling of your teens. Unattached from your inbox, phone calls and the fluorescent lights of an office, every Friday comes with the promise of falling in a new kind of love. You resurface on Monday with pockets filled with stories to share and a stupid smile that lasts until you’re back at it. Or, perhaps the weekend your falling in love with is more fantasy than reality. Taking a “weekend” during a busy day to drift off in thought, allowing yourself to detach through dreaming of the romance you’ll never have with the one you want the most.
I know it is only Wednesday, but I am ready for the weekend. And thanks to disco-pop producer Penguin Prison, I’ve got a reason to start dreaming. VÉRITÉ took me to the edge with her gorgeously layered pop gem “Weekend,” and Penguin Prison just pushed me into the infinite abyss with the release of this remix. The lyrics divulge the nostalgia for love’s exhilarating moments, mixed with the reality of how temporary that elation can truly be.
So, we can fall in love for the weekend? You know I’m trying too hard
But it isn’t enough
So, we could fall in love for the weekend.
