Favorite Songs of the 2010s # 82 “Pedestrian at Best” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett

Pedestrian at Best


From album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit


Courtney Barnett’s 3ish albums have shown she has a gift for lyrics and Pedestrian at Best is no exception. She squarely puts the blame of her relationship problems on herself throughout the song but can’t help ending the chorus with an insult at her (ex?) partner’s expense, “I think you’re a joke, but I don’t find you very funny.”
