BEST NEW SONGS: TERROR JR - COME FIRST

Terror Jr - Come First

We still don’t know who the mysterious new band Terror Jr is (probably not Kylie Minogue though), but we now know that they “Come First” (definitely a double entendre). TJ’s new single was produced by the red-hot Felix Snow and Jerker Hansson, and created by “Campa, Zach Sorgen, Bill, Avena Savage, Double Helix, Lisa, Dr. Olov, David, Psycho Lisa & Kylie.” Perhaps that means something to you, but to me it’s just gibberish.

Anyways, the 5th single from the American-based band, “Come First” feels like the perfect anthem for dating in the entitled-identity-politics era in which we find ourselves. It’s basically a love song that declares “No one loves you like you love yourself, so if we’re gonna be together know I’m looking out for me and my needs first and foremost.” It’s like Ayn Rand’s cream dream.

It’s also absurdly catching. Listen below only if you’re OK with this song being jammed into your cranium for the next fortnight.

 

TERROR JR “COME FIRST”

If we ever learn anything more about Terror Jr, we’ll call you. In the interim, here’s the lyrics to “Come First”:

i got my own, don't need to buy me a drink
stop asking questions like you care what i think
cause it's great that you want me
but i come with a warning
so i'mma be real with you, i know what i need

ain't easy, you gotta earn it
don't mind just watching you hurt it
keep trying, practice makes perfect
(oh, oh, oh)

baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first
baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first

i got my own, don't need to roll me a blunt
don't ask me questions like you care if i'm dumb (oh?)
take my treasure in your hands
better get with the program
i'll let you stay if you do something i like

i'm bossy, you can work for me
so sorry, that i'm not sorry
i'mma work you into the morning

baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first
baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first

keep me satisfied
i can make your head spin baby
just look me in the face, ooh
i'mma show you what i like
no, it ain't about you
i gotta get me, myself, and mine

baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first
baby, know that i come first, first, first
baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first

baby, know that i come first, i come first, i come first
