“Someone said they left together
I ran out the door to get her
she was holding hands with Trevor
not the greatest feeling ever
said, “Pull yourself together
you should try your luck with Heather”
then I heard they slept together
oh, the less I know the better
the less I know the better

Oh my love, can’t you see yourself by my side
no surprise when you’re
on his shoulder like every night
oh my love, can’t you see that you’re on my mind
don’t suppose we could convince
your lover to change his mind
so goodbye

She said, “It’s not now or never
wait 10 years, we’ll be together”
I said, “Better late than never
just don’t make me wait forever”
don’t make me wait forever
don’t make me wait forever

Oh my love, can’t you see yourself by my side?
I don’t suppose you could convince
your lover to change his mind

I was doing fine without ya
‘til I saw your face, now I can’t erase
giving in to all his bullshit
is this what you want, is this who you are?
I was doing fine without ya
‘til I saw your eyes turn away from mine
oh, sweet darling, where he wants you
said, “Come on Superman, say your stupid line”
said, “Come on Superman, say your stupid line”
said, “Come on Superman, say your stupid line”.

Citazioni.

The Less I Know the Better is a song by the Australian rock band Tame Impala, released on 29 November 2015 as the third and final single from the group’s third studio album Currents. The song’s accompanying music video takes place in a high school where a basketball player suffers a broken heart. The song peaked at number 23 on the Belgian Flanders singles chart, number 66 on the ARIA Singles Chart and number 195 on the French Singles Chart. In the U.S., the song charted at number 36 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart. Along with “Let It Happen“, the song was one of two from Tame Impala‘s Currents to reach the top five in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2015, coming in at #4.
Parker stated that “The Less I Know the Better” originated from his love of disco: “That song originally I thought shouldn’t be on a Tame Impala album, because it has this dorky, white disco funk. I wouldn’t call it cheesy, but it’s not trying to be too cool, because the lyrics are pretty dorky and the groove is pretty dorky. But at the same time, for me, I love that kind of music. I don’t know why, but I’ve been obsessed with disco for the last year or two”. According to Parker, recording the song became obsessive. He recalled performing over 1,057 partial vocal takes for either “The Less I Know the Better” or the album’s second single, “‘Cause I’m a Man“, though he could not recall which.
A music video for the song was uploaded on 26 November 2015 to the group’s Vevo channel. The video follows a high school basketball player in love with a cheerleader, who soon begins a relationship with the team’s gorilla mascot (named Trevor). Lars Brandle of Billboard described it thus: “the clip is a strange tale of high school lust and jealousy (and King Kong) played out in a technicolor trip”. The clip was filmed by the Spanish creative collective and directors Canada. The cheerleader is portrayed by Spanish actress Laia Manzanares“.
