  • I feel like lots of people are saying that Dodie's the one here trying to fit in with the other girls but then also be the 'cool girl', but I actually think that this is the throughline for all of the dancers. As you watch, you notice that each dancer is doing the same choreography, but adding their own personality to the moves. They flow together but aren't imitations of each other. What if everyone is trying to be 'different' and 'cool' based off of a model that we all collectively share? That the cool girl is the one who doesn't rock the boat too much, is 'chill', and quietly puts her needs aside for the group. And yet, we can't ignore our individuality and who we are, so even though the choreography has a baseline, each person puts their own flavour into it. It's like trying to fit yourself into a mould and cracking through it because it simply cannot contain you. Then there's the trying to lead the pack and be the 'trendiest' or the 'leader' as shown when she's says "its easy" with the iconic hair flip. She walks confidently forward but soon gets swarmed with dancers crossing in front and behind her and her steps slow down, and she looks unsure. The false confidence of being 'better' than the other girls leads to this feeling of intense loneliness and ultimately isolation. It's this beautiful and heartbreaking magnetic pull to want to be like someone else whilst your own identity is shouting to be heard. It makes me sad, but in a melancholic and beautiful way, in true signature Dodie fashion.

  • bruh I really wanna reference this song in my art work but i almost love the visual representation of this over the song, but I don’t know how to translate that into my own work, each unique action all brought back too a collective feeling of ‘other’ness

  • dodie's move at 3:38 is so jarring to me; the other dancers are so smooth flowing, this movement feels harsh and really sticks out. I know dodie's not a dancer but is it meant to be so stuck out? i mean, you could see it as the tension in fitting in figuratively + literally in the song but still. jarring haha

  • just realised that 2:24ish where the lyrics become self-critical, internalising shame, resentment, feeling hopeless etc she's isolated herself walking slowly and separate, alone. When the chorus drops they all dance together again. So interesting and well done!

  • i used to be a hardcore dodie fan in around 2015/2016 during her "my face" type songs if i remember correctly ( i hardly remember anything that happened a few years ago lol ) and i just got this in my recommended now that i'm fifteen, almost sixteen. dodie helped me come to terms with my depression, my anxiety, my sexuality, with myself in general, and she was also just a presence that made my day brighter everytime i watched one of her videos. and now to see her still making beautiful music, and thriving, is so wonderful. this song is really incredible and has such a great message behind it, and i'm about to go listen to it about twenty more times :))

  • Cold Girl (Ballad of Kiki) Parity of Cool Girl by dodie She carries the meat she doesn't eat With her dog pack Leave it on the deck under leaves she didn't Come back And all the food, at Grandpa's hand She'd aways ask him for Won't throw it away, it's okay, without a Single care I could could've swore She wouldn't play The earring game Yeah, I watched her ask for all his food anyway Rolling her tongue, over the back of her mouth Surely you know she'll bark at them instead Cold girl Will be different She'll be quiet Oh, no barking Cold girl Will be different She'll be quiet Oh, no barking How much of her tongue can she stick out Until we notice her Bounce to the left, carry on Just smile and say you're a good dog She pleads and demands All your meats like only she can She'll be asked till he's out I would know, I've seen her before Chill outside when freezing out Or every heavy snow, she'll have a white back I could could've swore She wouldn't play The earring game Yeah, I watched her ask for all his food anyway Rolling her tongue, over the back of her mouth Surely you know you know better instead Cold girl Will be different She'll be quiet Oh, no barking Cold girl Will be different She'll be quiet Oh, no barking No, doesn't bark Wants more meat than a friend No, she won't stop begging them She'll be quiet again Oh no barking [About my dog who begs from grandpa every morning and spends most of the winter outside and the summer in front of a fan or vent]

  • I find the lines "You will plead and demand all your needs but you can't He'll be asked 'til he's bored I would know, I've been bored before" And "I won't be like them Want me more than friend" To be really interesting. It's like this relationship is similar to "Boys Like You" - there's more, but the partner does not want a romantic relationship. Or, they're sending mixed signals, with them saying no but acting in ways that would suggest romance. They're insistent that they're "just friends", and she wants more, but she feels guilty for wanting more. She's been in this situation before, guy friends who keep pursuing despite rejection. So she thinks she's being like them, and doesn't want to be, so she doesn't say that she wants more out of this. But I think the situation is probably different. This guy does show an interest, likely sexual, in her, whereas she did not show any interest to the guys. But since the guy doesn't want it to be a romantic, likely closed, relationship, it feels very similar. The guy might be using this to manipulate her into staying with him in a not-quite relationship. But this song seems to mostly be about the ways women often perform, mostly for men, and hurt themselves and each other in the process. "Cool girl" disparages most women as being "uptight", "nags", "clingy", etc.

  • OOF okay That ending tho! She slowly pushes every girl away in an attempt to be cool and different from them, and finally begins to put HERSELF down to be more palatable to whoever she's trying to win the affection of... but one of the other girls raises her arm, and dodie copies her-- because even though she says she doesnt want to be like them and has pushed them away, she really does.

  • my take-- her knocking down the other cool girls kinda represents calling them out on their,, fakeness? not every outgoing charismatic person out there is faking their personality or anything, but when somebody can get along with everybody, they must be forcing it a little bit. so, when i see her throwing and kicking the air to knock the other cool girls down, she's calling them out, saying they're boiling themselves down to a charicature of themselves for somebody else, instead of just being themselves *for* themselves and the people that really love them. but even then, dodie can't help falling into the habit of doing the same. of trying to be like them, the type of person anybody could like. as the last cool girl gracefully tosses and turns after getting thrown to the ground, dodie still wants to be like her. (this hurt my heart oh my god !!) i get the sense that as she sits back down she feels guilty,, but it's too late now. wOW that was ✨pretentious✨ but fun :) ahh love dod so much
