This love is as good as any other
Says one woman to another
This love is not wrong
Not wrong

The Field Mice – This Love Is Not Wrong

This time we played pop songs that are bringing the issue of same-sex love, as implied in its lyrics or its music video. The idea of this show started when we heard a story of how our friend was treated unfairly because she’s ‘different’ from the others. Emphasize that we just want to show our solidarity as human being with the right to live, instead of saying what is right and what is wrong. We think there are many ways to defend our beliefs, not necessarily using violence and anarchism, right?

Among those with the theme, we played Acid House Kings‘ Say Yes If You Love Me (see the video), The Field Mice‘s This Love Is Not Wrong (“says one woman to another“), The Pains of Being Pure at Heart‘s This Love is F*cking Right (obvious from the video), Jens Lekman‘s A Postcard to Nina (“Nina, I can be your boyfriend so you can stay with your girlfriend“),  The Hidden Cameras‘ Ban Marriage (“…met my angel in a suit with a smile, and as I looked him in the eye…”), The Magnetic Fields‘ Long-Forgotten Fairytale (“there’s an old enchanted castle and the princess there is me“) till The Stone Roses‘ Sally Cinnamon (“you’re her world”). And we also played two local acts that will play on Outerbeat on Stage next Tuesday, Lazy Room and Angina.
