Okay, Fine, "Your Power," By Billie Eilish is a Good Song

 I've written previously about how while I like her as a person, I don't much care for the music of Billie Eilish. Yeah, I've been quite critical of her songs as none have appealed to me. I will admit, however, having recently heard her newest single, "Your Power," that it is quite good. "Your Power," is going to be on her next album coming out in late July, "Happier Than Ever." I first saw the song performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when he recently interviewed her and they had a video of Billie and her brother Finneas doing the song--as can be seen above. It is quite beautiful with its quiet melody. 

The lyrics cover those who abuse their power--with the main idea being those who would take advantage of young women and prey upon them both physically and for their money and fame. It is unclear if the song is calling out anyone specific or just how the entertainment complex and media treats women, it all still works great though with the gentle guitar and Billie's mournful lyrics. I don't know if this is a fluke of me liking a Billie Eilish song or if I should try out the album this July and see if I am struck by it. Whatever the case, I will admit to finding, "Your Power," to be a good song.
