OMYGOD

Album: Girl Talk (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This quirky heartbreak single from the British singer Kate Nash's third album finds her so distraught that she can't even enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like free drinks and dolphin kisses. Her mood is so dour that she can't even receive vitamin D from the sun, putting her at increased risk of cardiovascular disease and rickets. Nash wrote the song while on vacation, which might explain the lyric about writing postcards to the object of her obsession.
  • The video was directed by Aram Rappaport, who also made a movie called Syrup in 2013. The clip features a group of synchronized swimmers.
