Review: "Don't Call Me" - maryjo
Imagine being treated wrong throughout a relationship and then that same person initiates the breakup. But instead of moving on, they turn into a storyteller and centers the plot around you being the villain. Now, you find yourself having to defend yourself against the lies by turning the frustration into a song - a summer hit at that. In “Don’t Call Me” by maryjo, she exposes all of this and sets the record straight. Attempting to tarnish someone's image isn’t cool, especially when they’re lying. But karma never misses anyone, and now this person looks foolish to many listeners around the world.
This relationship could’ve ended peacefully, but this person decided to open their mouths and spit out lies. However, maryjo knows the real truth, and it's now her turn to share it, along with expressing that they shouldn’t bother talking or calling her, after attempting to degrade her character. She clears up the biggest lie by stating: “Cause you’ve been runnin round running your mouth just like a track star. Telling all of your friends that it's been so hard. When you’re the one who said we were done, said you fell out of love, boy, you must think that I’m dumb?” She then clarifies the real reason for their break up, by sharing: “You know you broke my heart in two. You know exactly what you did to me. I’ve had it up to here with you.” So, if maryjo isn’t the problem here, then what was the point of all of the lies? Now that things are cleared up and she got to share her side of the story, she ends the song, as well as the back and forth, with: “You can call me a mess and say what you like. You can call me whatever you want but don't call me tonight.” She’s had it “up to here” and she's over it.
