The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Rid of Me'

Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Rid of Me'

I'll tie your legs
Keep you against my chest
Oh, you're not rid of me
Yeah, you're not rid of me
I'll make you lick my injuries
I'm gonna twist your head off, see
Till you say don't you wish you never never met her?
Don't you don't you wish you never never met her?

Polly Jean Harvey WAS the 90s for your Revenge Honey. I'm not even ashamed to admit that I think a huge part of my personality and pop culture likes and dislikes stem from my early love of the music of PJ Harvey. Revenge was her calling card before Alanis wanted to go down on Uncle Joey in a movie theater. Melancholy was her auto-emotion before Shirley Manson declared she was only happy when it rained. And we won't even mention all the one-ups she had on Courtney Love. Her style was all over the place and entirely her own. Picking a favorite PJ song is like trying to pick a favorite star in the sky. They're all beautiful, and on any given night, any one could mean more to you than another. But the one that I will always gravitate to is "Rid of Me," because it's the song that gets me through every angry day I've ever had. 

Give it a try on your next rage-y day. You won't regret it. ~RH
