Bitch - Meredith Brooks

Bitch

Blurring The Edges
rock female vocalists 90s pop alternative


"Bitch" is a song that was released by Meredith Brooks in 1997 on her album Blurring the Edges. The song was cowritten by Brooks and Peiken. Initially, some radio stations preferred not to mention the name of the song and would instead refer to it as "a song by Meredith Brooks". However, with time, its name became more commonplace to announce on the air. Later on, different remixes of the song became popular in dance clubs. Brooks has stated in interviews that "Bitch" was almost omitted from the album, reportedly because of the song's strong language (containing the word 'Bitch'), which could have prevented it from becoming a radio hit. The song steadily rose on the Billboard Charts, eventually peaking at #2, and became an international success, being a hit in countries such as the UK, where it peaked at #6, and New Zealand, where it peaked at #4. It ranked #79 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s. A music video was released to promote the single. It features Brooks on guitar with a flower background swirling behind her. As the song plays, different feminine objects float by showing the softer side of womanhood, such as dolls, babies, and dresses—this visually shows a juxtaposition to the common connotations of a bitch. Due to its particularly strong language, the song was heavily censored when it's played on the radio. Also, due to the expletive name, the song was given the alternative title "Nothing In Between". This was the title used in various Asian countries, including Malaysia, when it was first released.

Bitch - Meredith Brooks

I hate the world today
You re so good to me
I know but I can t change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I m an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you d be so confused
I don t envy you
I m a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

I m a bitch, I m a lover
I m a child, I m a mother
I m a sinner, I m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I m your hell, I m your dream
I m nothing in between
You know you wouldn t want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You ll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I m going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won t mean a thing

I m a bitch, I m a lover
I m a child, I m a mother
I m a sinner, I m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I m your hell, I m your dream
I m nothing in between
You know you wouldn t want it any other way

Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season s already changing
I think it s cool, you do what you do
And don t try to save me

I m a bitch, I m a lover
I m a child, I m a mother
I m a sinner, I m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I m your hell, I m your dream
I m nothing in between
You know you wouldn t want it any other way

I m a bitch, I m a tease
I m a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I m your angel undercover
I ve been numb, I m revived
Can t say I m not alive
You know I wouldn t want it any other way
