    Woo-hoo! Got it! Another blinder of a tune. You’re really pushing out some consistently good tracks; makes me even more excited for the album.

    — Matt (not the other one)

  2. Conor Says:

    Ahh, how good is this? This is gonna be mad performed live.

  3. ascorbic Says:

    Hah! It segues surprisingly well into the next track in my iTunes. Not what I’d really expect!

  4. Marina Diamond Says:

    This is my total fave to perform apart from mowgli.

    I am so excited about the video!!!! Any distinctive ideas you all have- send them in!

  5. barney. Says:

    i love the bouzouki! so different, and proves your not part of the girls-and-synths brigade that some people seem to lump you in.

  6. Yhmbw Says:

    Omg I used to love the former version, but this “Girls” is like greeaat.
    Thanks a lot Marina!!

  7. Matheus Says:

  9. ashleigh Says:

  10. Louisee x Says:

    Marina this is amazing! I absolutely love it :).
    and everyone loves a freebie, right?!

    Your voice is wicked :).

    Ideas for the video.. hmm, I can imagine it as a big group of girls (imaginative right 😉 ) or come to think of it, it could be guys dressed up as girls, that would be so discordant. maybe taking the mick out of girls, which would really fit in with the whole “all the calories they eat.. blah blah blah” sections.

    or, the end section ‘wag your tails to the beat’ could mean that the girls are ‘catty’ and therefore you could have a cat-fight theme, girls dressed up as cats slagging each other off.

    *stops now before anymore stupid random ideas come flowing out of my keyboard!*

  11. Louisee x Says:

    ooh, and if the guys were dressed up as girls, you could be dressed up as a guy? which fits in with the ‘look like a girl, but i think like a guy’… x

  12. stephanie Says:

    thank you, thank you, thank you!! loved this one live.

  13. Marius Says:

    WOW, it’s so much better than the former version! I love it! 😀

  14. Marius Says:

    Ideas for the video? hmmm….The image that comes to my mind while listening to the song is a group of traditional/folklore Greek girls in a traditional Greek temple. They discover “modern” magazines somewhere in the temple and try to look like Kate Moss and all the superstars that appear there. They also discover a room with a huge TV or something and are amazed by awful sexist hip hop music videos, so they try to puke and wear a lot of make up and try to be like those “perfect” girls….and then something bad would happen to them for not being themselves. You know, kill them off some way….xDDD (just joking)

    What do you think?

  15. AnwenKyatic Says:

  18. Emma Says:

    Thx for the freebie – appreciated. Sounding spot on as ever. x

  19. Ryan Says:

    Eh….I was actually up early/late enough to get in on this last night but I had forgotten and was actually doing my coursework (for once). This will teach me to never stop obsessively checking Twitter!

  20. Matt Says:

    this is fantastic, I like the greek (?) inspiration. Can imagine this will be great to perform, lots of energy.

    Marina are you in Nottingham on the 24th?

  21. ALEXANDER GRAY Says:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I CAN’T BELIEVE I DON’T HAVE IT 😥

  22. Matt Says:

    ah, I see from Myspace that you are XD excellent.

  23. Nick Biddiscombe Says:

    Bah. Still, you played wonderfully at the Great Escape. You followed by Patrick Wolf plus the Spiegeltent = AMAZING!

  24. ryanparker Says:

    *cough* someone want to upload it for those who never got it? *cough*

  25. Sam Says:

    nooooooooooooo! i missed it!

  26. podsticles Says:

    NO!!!! I’m so sad I missed this. Was working from 8am-8pm and missed it. And I’m a massive fan of the original Girls, as I’ve said before here! Aheh aheh! (that’s me crying by the way).

  27. Jelmer Says:

    How about this for a video:

    An old-fashioned psychiatrist’s room (a la Freud: bookcases, big couch). We see a montage of scenes with different patients on the couch (girls, guys, women, men) who complain, lip-syncing Marina’s lyrics.

    On a chair next to the couch we see the psychiatrist (unclear at first, covered in pipe-smoke and shadows). Once ‘he’ appears it’s Marina (looking dead-serious with a pipe in her mouth, glasses on, a nice knot in her hair and a notebook full of scribbles). And all she says during the first part of the song, in reply to the singing and shouting of the patients, is: ‘Na na na na na’

    Until 2:20 in the song. Then it’s Marina stepping up and singing the part: ‘I feel like I’ve been riding in a fast car. Burning dirty gas won’t get you that far.’ Throwing her pipe and glasses away and underneath the oldfashioned clothes is a fancy dress (the one u wore in Amsterdam should do the trick) and then she starts jumping and shouting on the couch as a final I’d-rather-be-mad-than-sad-kind-of-thing?

  28. Jelmer Says:

    …as a final I’d-still-rather-be-a-girl-than-a-man-kind-of-thing…

    fits better.

  29. Marina Diamond Says:

    Jelmer- I love it

    Louisee x- I thought of the boys dressed as girls thang too… Im mulling it over..

  30. rrrich Says:

    Thanks! It’s awesome!

    Surprised I managed to get hold of it as I only remembered at like 3pm whilst at work! 😛

  31. The Bubble Boy Says:

    I presumed the ‘wag your tails to the beat’ line was about WAGs and imagined a Footballer’s Wives pisstake video. Marina as Chardonnay. Yum.

  32. fulltext Says:

    Would someone please reupload and post a link for the rest of us?

    or, email me directly (wink wink)

  33. lovelydisco Says:

    This is my new favourite choon.
