Song Analysis – “That’s Rich”

“That’s Rich” is an anthem of self-empowerment and a decisive break from a toxic relationship.

It speaks to the experience of someone who has grown weary of a partner’s narcissism and the imbalance in their relationship.

The partner is criticized for being self-centered, as highlighted by the plea to “take your mirror off the wall,” suggesting a preoccupation with their own image rather than a genuine connection.

Our singer expresses clear frustration with the partner’s shallow attempts to maintain the relationship, symbolized by sending flowers, which she would rather burn than accept. This act of defiance illustrates her exhaustion and their readiness to stand up for herself.

In the chorus, the phrase “That’s rich” is used to call out the partner’s hypocrisy and absurd accusations.

It’s a sarcastic dismissal of the claim that the partner is the one being used when it has actually been the other way around. Our protagonist asserts her independence, emphasizing that she doesn’t live to please her partner, especially with lines like “You think I dress up for you?”

As the song progresses, the repeated “Bye bye fool” serves as a catchy and final goodbye, marking the end of the singer’s tolerance for her partner’s behavior.

The lyrics “I think it’s funny how you miss me / When you never knew me” and “You were a lazy lover” point to the partner’s lack of effort in the relationship and the singer’s realization that they’re better off without them.

The song culminates in a celebration of our singer’s newfound confidence and freedom, highlighting the importance of recognizing one’s worth and moving on from those who fail to see it.

“That’s Rich” is a declaration of independence from a partner who has taken more than they’ve given and a joyous embrace of self-respect and autonomy.

Overall Impression

When it comes to the unforgettable tunes of Eurovision 2022, Ireland’s “That’s Rich” by Brooke Scullion stands out as a prime contender for the title of ultimate earworm.

With its punchy lyrics and catchy melody, it’s no surprise that many of us found ourselves humming along. Though surely I’m not the only one who had been belting out “Bye Bye BOY” when it was really “Bye Bye FOOL”, right?

In any case…

The buzz was palpable from the moment “That’s Rich” hit the airwaves, with fans eagerly anticipating how the song would translate live.

Admittedly, there were some jitters after catching glimpses of the pre-party circuit, leaving a trail of concern among the Eurovision community.

But fear not! Brooke didn’t just rise to the occasion; she soared, delivering a performance brimming with confidence, sass, and that signature Irish sparkle.

It was a display that etched itself into the memories of all who watched, even though it was met with the heartbreak of not advancing to the Grand Final.

Though perhaps we should talk about the elephant in the room: “guilty pleasure” anthems.

“That’s Rich” might just be the track you claim to shrug off—until, of course, it catches you off-guard on a night when the wine flows freely, and suddenly you’re belting it out at the top of your lungs.

But why subscribe to the notion of guilty pleasures? Music is meant to be enjoyed, and this song is no exception.

So, I say we embrace it wholeheartedly! Crank up the volume, let loose, and raise a glass in honor of Brooke and her Eurovision journey.

Here’s to the songs that make us sing a little louder and feel a little lighter—no guilt attached, just pure, unadulterated joy!

Brooke – “That’s Rich” – Lyrics

Take your mirror off the wall
Ain’t you gettin’ bored of your reflection?
I’m tired of dodging all your calls
You wanna be the center of attention

I’m gettin’ sick of you now
Stop sending flowers
I’ll just burn them all
And you’ll cry for hours

Always putting me down
Well I got news for you
You say I’m using you now

Hey stupid

That’s rich
When it’s coming from you
That’s rich
Well I got nothing to prove
That’s rich
You think I dressed up for you?
And that’s rich, ha

Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool

Used to think I need your help
To feel good, turns out I do it better
Think maybe you should please yourself
Because I am over you, I’ll see you never

I’m gettin’ sick of you now
Stop sending flowers
I’ll just burn them all
And you’ll cry for hours

Always putting me down
Well I got news for you
You say I’m using you now

Hey stupid

That’s rich
When it’s coming from you
That’s rich
Well I got nothing to prove
That’s rich
You think I dressed up for you?
And that’s rich

Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool

I think it’s funny how you miss me
When you never knew me
You were a lazy lover
I moved on to ones that move me
Loser lose your attitude
I’m doing good that’s on me
All glowed up, yeah that’s on me
You see me now, you want me?!

(Bye bye)
Cos I don’t need a lazy lover
(Bye bye)
No I don’t want to meet your mother
(Bye bye)
Don’t cry, I’m sure you’ll meet another
And you’ll tell her you love her

Well, that’s rich
When it’s coming from you
And that’s rich
Oh I know all of the moves
That’s rich
You think I dressed up for you?
And that’s rich

Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool (ooww!)

Bye bye fool
Bye bye fool (ooww!)
Bye bye fool
