about

Fate brought the Bitches to Marina for an episode of Band in Seattle featuring the regular jammers of Mo' Jam Mondays. Marina harnessed the powers of the Bitches to create a masterpiece of musical expression, which she showcased to thousands of viewers on local television

And yet fate was not done with Marina...

...for she brought the Pick.cool contest to win studio time at Orbit Audio with audio sorcerer Joe Reineke. Marina won, duh, and made this kick-ass song.

Marina and the Bitches debut song, "Self-Love".

lyrics

Self-Love
Music, Lyrics and arrangement by Marina Christopher

I’ve been struggling, baby
Fighting battles in my mind
I’ve been up nights worried
And I feel like I’m falling behind
Like I ‘m gonna quit before I reach that finish line
So I know that it must be time

Stop playin’ them mind games with yourself
No reason to do that
Start being ok with yourself
Wherever you are at

Why you valuing other peoples’ opinions
That won’t help you none
Start valuing the opinion within ya
And start loving number one

You know I’m working on my self-love
I’ve been working on my self-love
Don’t need nobody else’s love
I’ve been working on my self-love

Stop being so hard on yourself
And listening to your feelings
Make some time for yourself to do
All the things you’ve been needing
Why you take yourself so seriously
You think you always gotta be so right
Working so deliriously
Keeping yourself up at night

You know I’m working on my self-love
I’ve been working on my self-love
Don’t need nobody else’s love
I’ve been working on my self-love

We’re all trying to be
Better human beings
Not exactly sure just exactly what it means
Trying to hide
Behind our insecurities

You know I’m working on my self-love
I’ve been working on my self-love
Don’t need nobody else’s love
I’ve been working on my self-love

I helped my self to some self-love
Don’t need nobody else’s love

Be wise, be brave, be strong and true
And love everyone, including you
