“Savior Complex” by Phoebe Bridgers

One of my favorite voices of 2020 was Phoebe Bridgers, and one of my favorite albums of 2021 was Punisher, by Phoebe Bridgers. “Savior Complex” was one of my first-listen favorites, and it has remained one of my go-to songs from the album. Its found its way to many playlists, and on to my Top songs of the year via Spotify.

“Baby, you’re a vampire.
You want blood and I promised,
I’m a bad liar,
with a savior complex.
All the skeletons you hide –
show me yours,
and I’ll show you mine.”

I feel this song deeply. I am trying to overcome my own savior complex tendencies. Its hard work. It takes so much time. But fixing yourself is not something that happens over night.

If you want to hear more Phoebe, and wish to support her and her music, click here. She has the album Punisher on vinyl (yay) and some fun merch – I dig the journal and skeleton sweatpants.

Pandemic days have been hard on musicians, so I’m trying to support and promote and encourage others to support, too. Music is everything to me – I want to be part of saving it.
