I know that writing this blog is not going to affect the phenomenon of people misunderstanding “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”. But guess what? That’s okay. People are busy and have their own jobs, they are not obligated to dissect the lyrics of my music. They have other things to do. If they want to party and do all the things I say brought me sadness in my song, with my song as the soundtrack…so be it. Then maybe they can get some ironies going in their life as I have in mine. When did God or whatever divinity orchestrating my life and career become such a prankster?
I Took a Pill in Ibiza
Mike Posner

I really hope people pay attention to the lyrics eventually. You’ve put together a great message on the fleeting, illusory joys of fame and vanity. May those busy people take a moment, soak it in, and begin the difficult process of taking a long look at their own priorities and affinities in life. It’s a lot to hope for, I know, but what good thing isn’t?
