Toe Tappers: Smoke and Mirrors by Gotye

I heard this song in my absolute favourite TV series – SUITS! Find me a Harvey Specter and I’ll be eternally thankful. There is something about the lyrics and the music delivered by Gotye that makes ‘Smoke and Mirrors’ so addictive. It could also be the fact that in the series, Mike Ross and Harvey are accused of being frauds, and the first lyric are.. You are a fraud and you know it. If you thought season one of Suits was enough to get you hooked you are going to be shocked and amazed at season two. Betrayal, loss, loyalty and all around genius, the writers of this series are on a mission to satisfy every corporate guilty pleasure. So go out there get your hands on the entire two seasons and snuggle up with your heartless Harvey and enjoy the show.

I’m going to leave you with the song, while I get ready for lunch, who shall I channel today, Jessica Pearson, Donna Paulson or Rachel Zane?

Lyrics:

You’re a fraud and you know it
But it’s too good to throw it all away
Anyone would do the same
You’ve got ’em going
And you’re careful not to show it
Sometimes you even fool yourself a bit
It’s like magic
But it’s always been a smoke and mirrors game
Anyone would do the same

So now that you’ve arrived well you wonder
What is it that you’ve done to make the grade
And should you do the same?
(Is that too easy?)
Are you only trying to please them
(Will they see then?)
You’re desperate to deliver
Anything that could give you
A sense of reassurance
When you look in the mirror

Such highs and lows
You put on quite a show
All these highs and lows
And you’re never really sure
What you do it for
Well do you even want to know?
You put on quite a show

(Mother)
Are you watching?
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)

You’re a fraud and you know it
And every night and day you take the stage
And it always entertains
You’re giving pleasure
And that’s admirable, you tell yourself
And so you’d gladly sell yourself
To others

(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?
(Mother)
Are you watching?

Such highs and lows
You put on quite a show
All these highs and lows
And you’re never really sure
What you do it for
Well do you even want to know?
Yeah you put on quite a show
