LYRICS: This Broken Heart Don’t hurt as much In Los Angeles Those sad, sad, lonely memories Just fade away You know I wasn’t born here Thank God I found this place Now every day I dream here Amidst the life and decay But no other place could understand me … But LA Living in the “City of Angels” There’s nothing you can’t do Now that you’re in LA These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous The sun will inspire you Here in LA Once started out, some years ago Broke and living down town Now I’ve got my song, on the radio Still got that “day job” Somehow I made my way To, broke in Silver Lake But every day I still dream here until I get my day Cause no other place could ever get me… Like LA Living in the “City of Angels” There’s nothing you can’t do Now that you’re in LA These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous The sun will inspire you Here in LA So Lost when I made it to this big city Saw myself leave behind all the self pity Left the grey and made my way Its not for everybody but I’m here to stay In LA Living in the “City of Angels” There’s nothing you can’t do Now that you’re in LA These, streets, they’ll make you feel famous the sun will inspire you Here in LA

about

SHAPES AND VARIATIONS is a collection from ROBOTANISTS, of covers, reharmonized and rearranged to paint an aural portrait of all that they love about Los Angeles...

“Joe Jackson’s classic ["Are you really Going Out With Him"] gets a gender bend and couldn’t sound sexier. “Dance, Dance, Dance” is reworked to the point if you didn’t know any better you’d assume Lykke Li was covering them. Seriously go compare the two... the band was challenged to make the most overplayed songs listen-able again. They rose to the challenge and then some.” INTRAFFIK.com

"Robotanists do a great job of creating the soundtrack to your life in LA... “Never Tear Us Apart” is “the stand-out track… Aside for this being a great song to begin with, the Robotanists give it a sweet and soulful makeover, complete with Casio tones, driving drums, and a lonely and powerful guitar solo. The song comes crashing down at the end like the INXS version never did, but you always expected it to. Effects and all – they find the soul of this song and expose it for what it is, a heart-wrenching song about the pain of loving so much it hurts.” LABUZZBLOG.com
