Meg Myers - 'Desire'

Probably one of the more visceral singles currently on alt-rock rotation, 'Desire' is the brilliant siren from Tennessee-born Meg Myers.

Why is the song so great?

First, it blends just the right amount of industrial beats with focused, intense lyrical stylings.

Second, the melody is--plain and simple--sensual and seductive;  indeed, the narrator exclaims, very plaintively, 'I want to f*** you.'

Third, the track's tenor and attitude serve as the very embodiment of its title:  desire.  The meter of the lyrics and arrangement is one of concentration and fixation all throughout the entire production.
