When I first heard that song "Gold" by Kiiara, I was stunned (but honestly not really all that surprised) that something so dissonant and horrible sounding could have made it to the Top 40. Then I actually read the lyrics (because who can understand them?) and found out the song is about her cheating on her boyfriend with his brother and getting mad at the boyfriend because he left her at a party when the roof was on fire. The song said "bodies on the pavement," which made me think it was about that nightclub shooting that happened earlier this year.
