Music Monday – ‘The Burden of Being Wonderful’ Steel Panther

musicmonday

This is my second week participating in Music Monday – a weekly meme hosted by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek – and I’ve got a real treat for you guys this week. This week’s song is The Burden of Being Wonderful by the incredible Steel Panther. Not only is it insanely catchy, it’s also weirdly uplifting. If I’d ever had a shitty day at work, I’d come home and play this song, cranking the volume insanely high as I sang into my hairbrush (yes, really) while I pretended that guests at the hotel were only mean to me because they were jealous…

Lyrics

Why in a world of ugly faces
Should I be allowed to be so hot?
So many people without talent
Yet I was born with all the magical gifts I’ve got.

The perfect body, the perfect face
It’s like God’s best work all in one place
But the haters hate perfection.
Can’t you see?

It’s a burden being wonderful like me.

How in a world that’s so imperfect
Did I wind up with so much cool?
Friends never stick around too long,
Never feel like they belong.
Next to me they feel like a fool.

I got the grace of a dancer, a golden voice
People seem to hate me like I had a choice
Being this blessed is a lonely way to be.

It’s a burden being wonderful like me.

Like me.

So you say you wanna hang around
Don’t ever ask me to dumb it down
I’m a diamond, I’m gonna shine
Compared to everyone else
I’m like a whole damn diamond mine.

Oh, yeah…

I’m just a Maserati in a world of Kias
Genius would describe any of my ideas
If I was born in 1453
Leonardo Da Vinci would be jealous of me
But a world of Stevie Wonders will never see.

It’s a burden being wonderful like me.
