Of Montreal - Let's Relate Lyrics




How do you identify? How do you i.d.?
Are you something fashion wild?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me
I want to objectify, I want to object
Are you something fashion free?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me

Amalgam, I think that you're great, let's relate
I already like you I like that you like you I think that you're great I want to relate

I want to be modified, I want to diverge, are you something aliquot?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me
How do you identify? How do you i.d.?
Are you something fashion wild?
Talk to me talk talk talk to me

Amalgam, I think that you're great, let's relate
I already like you I like that you like you I think that you're great I want to let's
Relate

Readings of scorpion collage in my Ménilmontant atelier
Summer sobbing in the Père Lachaise sending clicking sounds into the void
Till I was clear of all reflexive anger and the dodgy 'hate you' song
It felt chill to be a failure though I've been a deprivation too long
Let's relate

Of Montreal Let's Relate Comments
  1. Turret Studios

    Phases of appreciation of a new of Montreal album :
    1. What the fuck is this about?
    2. What the hell, their other albums are so great I might as well give this one a chance
    3. It's pretty catchy actually, I see what he did there
    4. KEVIN'S A FUCKING GENIUS, HOW DOES HE DO IT?

  2. Harold Dutton

    Can someone tell the 'we're trying too hard' drag queens down in Athens and Atlanta, GA that looking "constipated" doesn't really fly well in the drag world? Come up to NYC and learn how it's done for Gods' sake.

  3. Adan Trindade

    Tutti noi siamo GAYS!!! Forever forever forever. Nadíe podrá decir lo qe debemos ser, pensar, sentir... somos libres. Obrigado por esta perfeição. Brasil S2

  4. Ebvardh Boss

    You know I really like them when they were an indie band. Now they’re an 80s electric band

  5. Antonio Laranjeira

    I love this song and this album

  6. Ilusi Digital

    So this is how drags party

  7. XXXMUXICISLIFEXXX

    Common people! Bands are NOT supposed to stay the same, sorry to burst your little bubble. LET THEM EXPERIMENT! Thats what life is all about. Its not fun to be playing the same dull routine shit for years. Get out of your comfort zone. Of course i love their first albums more but im glad they are letting me discover new styles of music.

  8. 32cactusking

    So good! Get it Kevin!

  9. Ella Hill

    Kevin, what happened to OM ?

  10. Mitchel

    Someone sent this to me and what

  11. Rose English Deluxe

    Meh. Not bad. I suppose you can't be melodramatic forever. This is chill though, I can dance to it. :D

  12. Disterixior

    This needs a remix

  13. gaspar miranda

    Wtf of Montreal!! :(

  14. Love Light

    Annnnd two songs into this band and im hooked

  15. Janelle

    This is very club kids-esque. I think that's why I like it so much.

  16. SPAN GUN

    WHY WON'T PEOPLE JUST LISTEN TO THIS GENIUS???????

  17. dasgutenberg6

    this would be an awesome jam to dance to after a few mile run outdoors with some stadium type sound, the chorus is super hype

  18. Gary T

    Like of montreal but song and video...not good

  19. JuanCantWin

    Man I won't lie, my girlfriend was the person to introduce me to to Of Montreal and I'm the kind of guy who likes DJ Screw, Cartel de Santa, and all types of grunge and I must say the first time I hear their music I thought it was majorly trippy but it grew on me. I saw them for the first time on Friday and holy shit talk about a parTY! Kevin is a really cool down to earth guy. I can't wait to see them again.

  20. Moviesmusicme

    Skeletal Lamping rocks my world. All their albums are great. Fuck Kevin Barnes is a genius. It's a shame they're so underappreciated.

  21. glueinmyveins

    this is the first song i've heard of them. if this is their worst album, then damn, they must be hella good because this is a banger.

    Eatin' Shit Food Reviews

    Of Montreal is bangers: the band fack

  24. cotton hat cat

    aw gosh kevin is so cute. what a peach

  25. Madd-D

    This wasn't my favorite track at first, but it seriously grew on me!

  26. Hope Poze

    idk how to feel about this one. It makes me confused more than about my sexuality

  27. Samantha Benjamin

    lana was just having a bad day i guess

  28. I am Ghostie

    These guys are addicting.

  32. Jeremy

    is he bisexual or does he just like make a statement with his clothing?? either way it's really cool haha.

  33. Miss Understood

    Oh God, I'm so torn. What to do? I live in Connecticut, missed my chance years ago when they played at Toads. On this current tour they will be in Buffalo as my closest location... Don't know what to do... Working two jobs doesn't help. I'd need to take at least 2 days off. Couldn't see them without tripping balls, having a ball, and grabbing at balls. What to doooooooo???

  34. Jade Medallion

    Annoyiiiing. what happened to Kevin

    Willow Petro

    Jaeden Anderson he's undergoing metamorphosis

    This concert was so fun

  37. ForestGirlBand

    WHO DISLIKED,??????

  38. yubeta

    this songs bangs more than any banger that ever banged

  39. Joshua Cruz

    shit it's funny he's learned toward the more poppy radio friendly sound weird but if 21 pilots can be on the radio so can Kevin, but I don't want him to haa

  40. ilovebjork somuch

    kevin barnes is a hell of a drug

  41. Jorge Sánchez

    c'mon 2007

  42. Ulises Barrera

    This is ridiculous

    Graydon Buchleiter

    Ulises Barrera right?!

    Candy Warhol

    "That's The Joke."

    Rose English Deluxe

    of Montreal have always been ridiculous. If anything, I can't enjoy this album because it isn't as ridiculous as the likes of False Priest or Paralytic Stalks.

  43. Roberto Doroteo

    Please, come to Mexico!!!

    Tom Hiddleston

    Roberto Doroteo ya regresan el 11 de mayo ❤️

  46. Christopher Leinhart

    Damnit Kevin, ya blew it

  47. Eric Blevin

    One of the best shows I've ever seen. I'm a fan for life.

    Dain Q. Gore

    This video is an accurate re-enactment

  48. yellananner

    People gotta understand that there's only 2 genders

    yellananner

    @Michael Milburn I'm okay with people being different sexualities. I'm saying that in a scientific sense, there's only 2 genders. There's multiple sexualities and I don't really care. There's a difference between gender and sexuality

    yellananner

    @Alonzo De Leon still... the Y chromosome determined that the person is a male and the absence of it is a female

    Michael Milburn

    science proves you wrong, gender is a spectrum of expression. educate yourself please

    Angela Alvarez

    hello47sandwich there are only two types of sex, and a diverse amount of genders.

    official prozac

    suck ur mudda

  49. averibobaveri

    i actually am really digging this album, contrary to what everybody else is saying about it. it might sound a bit different, but something about it is making me get my groove on

  50. Kolefish

    I've been watching this since the video came out, and I cant get the song out of my head. I sing it all the time, and I text lyrics randomly to people, and I finish sentences with the lyrics.
    What's happening...

    BaronVonComment

    You're experiencing self ofMontrealization. It's like self realization, only dancier.

  51. Andrew Liebau

    flaming creatures

  52. Adam

    Perverted and lame

  53. Max Q

    Superb!

  54. Just Joey

    wtf? i am gay now!

    Lady Lovely Lox & Bagels

    Yes *sprinkles you with 🌈🦄🥰*

  55. blazek ps4

    que buen video psycodellico , exelente trabajo y muy buena cancion !!

  56. Aldo B

    so gay.....

    Dejavaux

    ....so what.

    Austin Dillon

    so great!

  57. Thames Water

    I've never really gotten the hate for Innocence Reaches tbh.

    Jade Medallion

    Super Hans lol so right.

    Jade Medallion

    Because it's disgustingly vapid and contrived. I think Kevin is amazing but he's being an asshole. Like deflate the ego a bit ya know. And I'm a HUGE fan of all previous albums and love oM to death

    Willow Petro

    It's fucking full of edm party starters and glam rock ballads! What's not to love

    Ben Simon

    Super Hans and Jade -- Let's say that's completely true. It's only true of Let's Relate and It's Different For Girls. The rest of the songs aren't anything like those lyrically. Most of them are about the disastrous relationships he's had with women (maybe just one?) since separating from his wife. Def Pacts, Gratuitous Abysses, My Fair Lady, Les Cants de Maldoror, Chaos Arpeggiating, Trashed Exes, and maybe even more are all about psychotic girlfriends or at least relationships that went bad.

  58. drew

    Even if you're not digging this album (like me), you gotta see these guys. They're insane.

    orion deschamps

    Best concert of my life even this song sounded great in real life

    chris topher

    I promise you, with a few listens, this album WILL grow on you. It took me a minute to "get," but I cannot stop listening to it now.

    Zero F's

    This album is incredibly good, one of their best imo. It grows on you pretty quick. The previous album is really really good as well.

    Eatin' Shit Food Reviews

    I’ve seen them live and it was the party of the century.

  59. Cristian Barreros

    Just I love it

    Vera Vine *приезжает на медведе* - здрасте, я тоже :^)

    Selly Waist

    Rix я вступаю в этот клуб

  64. Graydon Buchleiter

    That was pretty cool

  65. Japanon

    OK kevin barnes has the most beautiful smile ever wow

    Rachel Cruz

    I'm always so entranced by him in "Different for Girls" because of that damn smile!

  66. Japanon

    Got to see this live before this came out!!

  67. Justin O'Reilly

    Oh well this is bad

  68. Patrick Price

    Having just got into this band, I like this new stuff better than the old stuff. I had a track by them on a compilation in 2003 and never paid attention since, going to have to explore. Which is their best album?

    crystal cruz

    Patrick Price hissing fauna, sunlandic twins, satanic panic in the attic, areate gloom, lousy with silviabrair, cherry peel and skeletal lamping

    Stefan Corona

    Patrick Price bro really listen to their old stuff. Then come back and post a comment. Until then. Idk stop saying stupid shit

    Patrick Price

    Gosh sorry man I am sorry about that. Never got into them eventually. Not that good. Ha. Prefer a bit of Bach, me. Have fun. Bye.

    Don Koovey

    lollllllllllllllll

    en avasolta

    then you might like "the hopeless opus of montreal"

  69. UrinaryTractInspection

    Bought this album. Very disappointed tbh.

    Don't hate of Montreal, jesus I love 4 albums. This was just not it.

    UrinaryTractInspection

    Yeah, I feel like he compulsively makes music. Which makes one good one out of five.

    hrotha

    Whenever of Montreal puts out a new record, I'm like "AGAIN? But I was just starting to get into the previous one!". It's kinda exhausting to keep up, to be honest.

    Asia Rose

    I really like this album idk why most people dislike it lol

    Red R0ver

    I didn't care for the album when it first came out. I really enjoy it now. I've found that I never love an of Montreal album on the first listen. It takes time for me to digest the damn things.

    Eatin' Shit Food Reviews

    This album has some of my favorite singles on it, this included.

  70. Ciaran Puente

    so glad drugs still does of montreal

  71. Benjamin Balutis

    I LOVE THIS VIDEO it's puts changes in me. Thank you

  72. Luke Wiese

    So good live the other night in Athens. Can't get this song outta my head

  73. Charlotte Guo

    3:40 kev's favourite outfit at the moment

  74. Charlotte Guo

    3:40 kev's favourite outfit at the moment

  75. Amster Dan

    Anyone think he's taking a stab at Gaga who has been known to steal styles from lesser known indie bands, like that time she used people in pig masks/costumes for her stage show after Kev was doing it? He looks a lot like her at certain times in this video.

    Graydon Buchleiter

    I thought he was making a point about the objectification of people through labels and the lady with the white hair was some sort of fashionista designer posh character who represented some part of society who saw the labels as fashionable or something. I like that he has a character running through this album. I don't think he did for Aureate Gloom.

    Jeremy Mioque

    "Shameless Rip-Offs" seems overexaggerated mate. Recording / Mixing / Production on the albums you quoted indeed seem to capture the flavour of certain periods and styles ; Aureate Gloom being the latest example of late 70s NY rock bands sound. But Barnes' songwriting, I believe, never falls into the "mimic" trap. Which is good.

    Rose English Deluxe

    Yeah I see of Montreal as a kind of Frankenstein's monster.

    donaldmcdonald

    "In a concupiscent spirit-rebellion against the discriminatory policies
    being championed by Right Wing/Christian Wrong politicians against the
    LGBTQ community as of late, we present an altogether inclusive and
    decidedly love-addled message to the world: Let’s not hate! LET’S
    RELATE!"
    from kevin varnes

  76. Amster Dan

    First ;)

  77. Bryan

    i'm looking forward to the next time i get to see you live.

    225 days under grass and you know more than I

    I've watched because of your commentary, and I can relate =)

  79. macedonia

    Sounds like Pheonix on Bankrupt! I dig this.

  80. Ison Spectra

    I love you of Montreal

  81. Flynn Larson

    Eep excellent

  82. Wonder Bread

    anyone else remember sunlandic twins and hissing fauna? man those were good

    Mia Cucchiara

    @Graydon Buchleiter 'Twas,because it wasn't so obvious or too 'on the nose'! 👌

    Mia Cucchiara

    @Kathryn Lmao..is you trollin'? Bitch you MIGHT be,bitch you MIGHT be..

    Mia Cucchiara

    @Kathryn Oh,and,um...it's not exactly a fucking circus act, they're putting their efforts into something they WANT to do...whether or not it's 'neccesary'(?) is not of material.

    Kathryn

    @Mia Cucchiara, sorry, just my opinion that the videos distract from their (incredible) lyrics. They always have and they always will. I like their music far better before I saw them perform it. I even watched a 'bio' thing on the lead singer, his explaining it all, but it didn't help (me) at all. I find the costumes and antics, the acting, or whatever it is, distracting. The lyrics are super-fantastic and so extraordinarily special. But it's just my opinion about what they "WANT to do" is all.

    Kathryn

    To put it plainly... I can't relate. lol Love 'em like cash though. I just can't watch them is all.
