Alice Merton introduces herself to her listeners on her Mint album by sharing a side to her that they may not be aware of.
Shakin' fingers Chest gets tighter now Try to stay calm Try to come back down
Meron explained in an Instagram commentary that she has a lot of fears. "I just kind of want to break free with this song and really focus on living, loving life and not caring about what happens if this happens or if that happens," she said. "Just feeling free."
Merton explained to Billboard that "Learn to Live" is a reminder to herself to face her fears. "It reminds me that if you're scared of everything in life, you're not actually gonna live," she added. "You're not gonna enjoy what's happening and it took me a really long time to understand that."
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
