Love Paranoia – Kou Shibasaki


Guess you could take love paranoia a number of ways. they’re not two words I put together often. Paranoia is all about worrying what might come to attack you, harass you, beat you, kill you.

Wait a minute …

Unless you’re really down on the idea of love and you don’t WANT to be loved, it can’t do those things.

Paranoia is about being afraid. Love is about facing down fears with renewed strength.

And I wouldn’t know either way because the album is in Japanese. But she has a good cold sincerity to her voice.
