I Can Change by LCD Soundsystem

Album: This Is HappeningReleased: 2010
  • On this track LCD leader James Murphy uses an acid beat to detail his marriage break-up. He told The Sun April 30, 2010; "I tried to do the best job I could with that song. I wanted to make it really beautiful and it's got a Jimmy Somerville falsetto. It's music of desperation. Everyone has their full range of emotions unless they're a sociopath. It's a desperate song but I don't think it's any more serious or heartfelt than any other."
  • At one stage Murphy had doubts about including this track on the record. He explained to The NME May 18, 2010: "I was constantly listening to the 'Sweet Dreams'-era Eurythmics stuff and Bronski beat and the first couple of OMD records. I was like, 'What's the worst that's gonna happen? People think I'm a simpering idiot? Fine.' But I panicked about it and I had Pat (Mahoney, drummer) come in. He loved it, and I trust Pat."
