London modern soul collective
There are several artists using the moniker 'Jungle'. 1. London electrocrooning duo Jungle have perhaps the best marketing strategy in recent memory for a new band. With virtually no recognition outside of their home country and no releases yet to their name, last summer they quietly debuted the music video for their song "Platoon" on Vimeo and let B-Girl Terra, the six-year-old breakdancing viral sensation, do the rest of the work. By September, the video was popping up on Facebook news feeds the world over. 2.

Sorry that I forgot to put this into the first portion that I wrote, but after looking back through the lyrics one more time, I noticed that Jungle said "will I be forgiven" and I interpreted this as him asking for forgiveness of his wrong-doings, and him feeling bad for the ways he was feeling. Also, the whole entire song is called, "Lucky I Got What I Want". Jungle repeated these words throughout the song, and I think that this is telling everyone listening that he is lucky to have all of the things that he has. So he shouldn't be upset about what he is upset about. Thanks-- Emma
After going through and listening to this catchy song, I looked at the lyrics to dig deeper and figure out what was going on. The song "Lucky I Got What I Want" by Jungle was put in the movie called "Nerve", which is where I discovered it. In the song, the artist says things like, "Inside this killing, cut if I want, time to leave..." which makes me see the depressed proportion of the song. Support that this part of the song was written to be depressing, is that Jungle is constantly singing "Don't you, forget about me" throughout the entire song that he sings. I thing that Jungle covers up the sad parts of the song by putting in catchy beats that people will find catchy. The entire song is very catchy, but just like me, when people first listen to the song, I don't think that they will notice exactly what Jungle is saying. I hope this helps, I will probably go through and do some more song lyrics to help other people. Please comment what your thoughts are because I would love to hear them in opposition to what I said.
