I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm being honest
It might've been a nightmare
To anyone who might care
Thought I could fly (fly)
So I stepped off the golden, mm
Nobody cried (cried, cried, cried, cried)
Nobody even noticed
I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they might care (might care, might care)
I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me
And you say, "As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change
The way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you're here
They don't deserve you"
I tried to scream
But my head was underwater
They called me weak
Like I'm not just somebody's daughter
It could've been a nightmare
But it felt like they were right there
And it feels like yesterday was a year ago
But I don't wanna let anybody know
'Cause everybody wants something from me now
And I don't wanna let 'em down
I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me
And you say, "As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change
The way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you're here
They don't deserve you"
If I knew it all then would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?
If I knew it all then would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?

My teen girls love Billie, so I've followed her music for awhile. There's no question she and her brother are very talented. The snap judgment on her singing style is shortsighted. It does help to listen through earbuds or a decent sound system. It's very subtle but beautiful, in depth musical arrangements. As she's evolving, her voice is beginning to remind me of the other Billie... Ms Holiday. I think her acclaim is well deserved. 
Is she actually singing words or just sounds? She needs to get all the pebbles out of her mouth before she starts singing. 
I tried again to see if I could understand anything that she "sang" in this song and all it seems to be is mumbling. I do not get why her "music" is popular in the least.

"How Billie Eilish Rode Teenage Weirdness to Stardom" by Jonah Weiner was in the
"The Music Issue," NYT, 3/15/2020.  Here are the first three paragraphs:

-----------------------------
    Sometime during the night of Sept. 4, 2018, Billie Eilish took her own life — in a dream. “I jumped off a building,” she recalled recently. What was most alarming about it, as she looked back, was how little it alarmed her. “I was in a really bad place mentally,” Eilish said; the dream struck her less as a nightmare than as a grimly alluring fantasy. The next day, she approached her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, a songwriter and producer, and told him about it. They have collaborated on every piece of music she has put out, and she presented the dream to him as possible inspiration for a new song.

     Eilish, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, was raised in a two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot Craftsman bungalow in a modest neighborhood on Los Angeles’s east side. In 2018, Finneas bought a house of his own, but his childhood bedroom, abutting Billie’s, has long been their favorite place to make music. (Their parents, working actors who augmented their income with side jobs in construction and teaching, still sleep on a futon in the living room.) Finneas, facing a keyboard, listened as Billie talked about her dream, and together they figured out some chords to frame Billie’s deceptively upbeat opening line — “I had a dream I got everything I wanted.”

    As they worked on the song, though, Finneas grew increasingly uncomfortable, then angry, and finally he refused to go any further. “We had this big argument,” Billie said. “Because I admitted something that I was, uh. It wasn’t a physical thing I was admitting. I don’t know how to put it without actually saying it, and I don’t want to actually say it. But it was me admitting to something that was very serious about my depression. A very serious step that I was admitting that I was planning on taking. And Finneas said, I don’t want to write a song about you killing yourself and how that’s everything you wanted!” Her parents caught wind of the argument and, along with Finneas, grew “insanely concerned,” Billie said. “It became this huge thing, and I locked myself in my room, and I was in there, just drawing on my wall.”
------------------------------

   My daughter introduced me to Eilish. My daughter and Eilish are the same age.   I was very alarmed when my daughter told me about the inspiration for this song.  Thank goodness she has a very supportive family and her music outlet, song writing and performing.   I want to watch her career and listen to her for a long time.  


Thank you so much for posting this. 
and a nice alum cover

like a Brubeck album cover

can you dig it? 
very nice in a silky, satiny, velourish feel

imagine that
I liked the music these two produce. Then I liked it a lot. Now even more. I have upgraded my system a few times during this period. I'd say it's fairly high endish now. I tell you this because with each upgrade I heard more and more in their music. The washes of sound, the pin point imaging, the distribution of sounds across the sound stage, her vocal control. It gives goose bumps. Oh and the bass, be careful of your speakers!  
'm older too, at 66.

The comment "not her best" was just about this song, not her overall career or talent.


Thanks genius.
Ladies & Gents, you are living through the evolution of music  
Every generation will have artists that older people don't like or understand.  I think that is kinda the point of rock music.  That is the rebellious aspect of it.  
This one is melodious and not just ambient.

Understated, down tempo.  Not without precedent. 

Dreamy and lush. 

Interesting how this song polarizes ratings and comments.  Must be somethin' here.

But she and her brother are the band and they write their own songs. Two people aren't enough band members? Prince was a one man band. Perhaps you don't appreciate her technique as a singer or their instrumentation. But "proper" technique never made a successful singer or band. 
Having heard this 6-8 times in the last year I went from 7 to 8. I just like it. Being retired at 66 years old and well off v so many people, in this bad time, I don't give a rat's *** what people think about my song rating.
Please upload the new one Your Power, Bill
throw some happy pills down this girls neck and then some coke up her nose.
There are 7 Billie Eilish songs on RP, that’s 7 too many
How did this career slip under the radar. There's no voice there. Nothing

In my opinion this old is better mindset is nothing new as evidenced by the rise of "Classic Rock". But if you never want to turn into the "get off my lawn" guy you need to actively seek out new and interesting music. It can have so many benefits. For me Radio Paradise does just that. So from this 61yr old fart thanks Bill and Rebecca Long live RP...

I don't know, I just don't get it.  I mean she's ok but just not worth all the praise...just a lot of teenage angst I guess.

My teenage girls love her so I took notice. (They also dress like her... at least it's baggy clothes.) I think she's got a unique and refreshing sound. She's obviously a serious talent. It'll be interesting to see how she evolves.

I still like When I was older, I over heard on FM she's cutting her hair and changing her musical direction in 2021, excited to see what comes out of that!
She's great, but it sounds like they are pulsing the volume artificially, and I find that really hard to listen to.

Unless you listen to RP 24x7, it seems unlikely you heard all 9 plays.  So why is it an issue?
I'm stuck between loathing and liking.
Minimal, mumbling, music-less.
So that's Billie Eilish. Kept reading articles about her and was impressed with what I read, but had no idea what her music was like. Thanks RP!
hello, 49 year old white male here who thinks Billie Eilish is terrific, as is this song. A wonderful blend of different styles well-organized and put across authentically. She is not some propped-up pop queen. She and her brother did this in their bedrooms. They mean it, and they did it themselves. You go girl!

"Unique"? Hmph. I listened all the way through because I've heard her name enough to want to see what all the fuss is about. I didn't hear anything new or different that makes her stand out as "unique". Maybe that's what the florescent green hair is for.
Geez what a piece of rubbish thank s for the  ps d button ...too much depressive teenage angst..not something for RP I'm not 13 anymore 
What a gorgeous album cover. Quite the contrast to the other album cover of hers that I have seen.

Nine times in a month is about once every 3 days - Bill's collection is extensive so I do not understand why any song would be played so frequently. I am listening to RP more and more these days while working from home. I liked this song when I first heard it but I am getting tired of this song popping up on RP so often. It is a good song but I find myself hitting the skip button just because it is being played too much.

The comment "not her best" was just about this song, not her overall career or talent.

It took me a little time to really listen to Billie but man, just keeps growing on me. Love the emotion, honesty and the fresh production. AND it's great to hear new artists on RP. Cheers!

Mimetic of Hope Sandoval, of Mazzy Star.  If anyone likes this song perhaps they should listen to Hope's vocals on the Massive Attack song, "The Spoils".

Kinda the opposite of that, actually. Almost everything she's done is just her and her brother with no outside input or "advice".

I agree but my concern is in today's world where talent is no longer allowed to develop she will be dealt with in a way that will see her disappear from view.

I don't 'get it' either? My daughter on the other hand thinks Eilish is amazing so it could be a generation gap thing? Don’t think so since Sir Elton John said she is one of the best new artists he’s heard It’s about broadening you’re interests Listen to it more...she really grows on you and has a very unique sound
Eilish again! Pretty boring stuff!
My daughter loves this artist. I give her an 8 for her unique style and for bypassing the record industry powers and making it on her own terms.

A long time ago, success started in the garage. 
The last decades were spilled by companies who designed sound and image.

These artist came from their own heart, just like the old garage raised bands.

Agreed.  I am old enough to be her grandfather and came of age in the same period  -- the baby boom-driven WW II peace dividend.  Many of my buddies in high school played music as well or better than many of the folks on musical tour here in British Columbia.  BC attracts many bohemian wanna be performing artists, and make no mistake, some of them are absolutely top notch.

I am open to other forms of synth pop so I listen carefully and am pleased that RP has BE's material on heavy rotation.   That said, I am not dialing in yet. 

In fact, I feel like sometimes reaching into her photos and cutting a piece of her dyed hair to tie steelhead flies. ...

Must be my smelly old white guy mental inelasticity.

"How Billie Eilish Rode Teenage Weirdness to Stardom" by Jonah Weiner was in the
"The Music Issue," NYT, 3/15/2020.  Here are the first three paragraphs:

-----------------------------
    Sometime during the night of Sept. 4, 2018, Billie Eilish took her own life — in a dream. “I jumped off a building,” she recalled recently. What was most alarming about it, as she looked back, was how little it alarmed her. “I was in a really bad place mentally,” Eilish said; the dream struck her less as a nightmare than as a grimly alluring fantasy. The next day, she approached her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, a songwriter and producer, and told him about it. They have collaborated on every piece of music she has put out, and she presented the dream to him as possible inspiration for a new song.

     Eilish, whose full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell, was raised in a two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot Craftsman bungalow in a modest neighborhood on Los Angeles’s east side. In 2018, Finneas bought a house of his own, but his childhood bedroom, abutting Billie’s, has long been their favorite place to make music. (Their parents, working actors who augmented their income with side jobs in construction and teaching, still sleep on a futon in the living room.) Finneas, facing a keyboard, listened as Billie talked about her dream, and together they figured out some chords to frame Billie’s deceptively upbeat opening line — “I had a dream I got everything I wanted.”

    As they worked on the song, though, Finneas grew increasingly uncomfortable, then angry, and finally he refused to go any further. “We had this big argument,” Billie said. “Because I admitted something that I was, uh. It wasn’t a physical thing I was admitting. I don’t know how to put it without actually saying it, and I don’t want to actually say it. But it was me admitting to something that was very serious about my depression. A very serious step that I was admitting that I was planning on taking. And Finneas said, I don’t want to write a song about you killing yourself and how that’s everything you wanted!” Her parents caught wind of the argument and, along with Finneas, grew “insanely concerned,” Billie said. “It became this huge thing, and I locked myself in my room, and I was in there, just drawing on my wall.”

   My daughter introduced me to Eilish. My daughter and Eilish are the same age.   I was very alarmed when my daughter told me about the inspiration for this song.  Thank goodness she has a very supportive family and her music outlet, song writing and performing.   I want to watch her career and listen to her for a long time.  
I growing to like this song more on a second listen..

Kinda like Karen and Richard Carpenter?
 
If Karen and Richard had a synth, sure. Karen was a badass drummer, so she'd know what chops to put in there.
Kinda reminds me of a Bob Moses song, but with much better vocals (and thought provoking lyrics). I like it! Keep 'em coming Eilish!
