Rufus Wainwright’s creation Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk is like a quiet night in with a large bag of candies, a glass of wine, and lounging next to a crackling fire with a good movie playing.
Preferably Moulin Rouge.
I mean his lyrics are a great description of this scenario…:
“If i should buy jellybeans,
Have to eat them all in just one sitting,
Everything it seems i like’s a little bit sweeter,
A little bit fatter,
A little bit harmful for me.”
I am far from living out this scene, as I am in an Indian summer, holding a frozen water-bottle to my chest in a desperate attempt to cool down, and trying to sit with minimal skin-to-skin contact with myself because the monsoon rains are refusing to fall. But I can dream, right?
Give this song a little listen, you will not regret it.
