On Our Turntable: “Francis Forever,” Mitski

Ever since I heard Marceline cover this song in Adventure Time‘s most recent episode, “The Music Hole,” I’ve been obsessed. The melody is simple—hypnotically so—as are the lyrics. Yet it’s never boring. I still feel deflated every time “Where you don’t see me” comes around, and I still get a rush of energy every time the electric guitar comes in for the final chorus. Anything more would just get in the way.
