What makes us say terrible, almost comically mean things to our loved ones? “‘What is this posture I have to stare at?’ That’s what he said when I was sitting up straight!” Apple complains in “Not About Love,” a song about the brutal war of words that can erupt in relationships gone bad. In a song filled with killer lines, Apple drops one of her best ones by describing the phenomenon thusly: “Conservation once colored by esteem / became dialogue as a diagram of a play for blood.” “Not About Love” looks forward to the stripped-down sound Apple would perfect on The Idler Wheel — it’s all piano, rumbling base, a few well-timed power chords and muscular, propulsive drumming courtesy of song-MVP Questlove.

I was glad they rerecorded this song with drums instead of the orchestra only version that was shelved in 03.
