Blame Joy is an unreleased song by Hayley Kiyoko which was intended for her debut EP, A Belle to Remember. It was also considered to be part of her debut album, Expectations, but was also scrapped.

Background Edit

The song was first announced on October 22, 2012.[1] Kiyoko released a video showing the making of Blame Joy on the same day.

Kiyoko posted several snippets of this song on twitter and other social media. She went into the studio to finish this song on December 3, 2012. However, it never got released for unknown reasons.[2] According to one fan, who claims to have been in a Q&A with her, it didn't make the EP, and later her debut album, because her sound/artistry kind of progressed past it, but she is thinking of revisiting the song and revamping it because of the hype behind it.[3]

Some fans merged the snippets into a draft of what the actual sound might have been like.[4]

Lyrics Edit

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
First time
I met her we were kids
Her dark side
Was written on her lips
We snuck out
Stole my parents' car
Crashed in my neighbor's yard
Didn't make it very far

Blame Joy
She messed me up and then
She showed me things
I thought I'd never see [?]

Blame Joy
It's dangerous inside her mind
Something she taught me everything [?]

Far away [?]
Got it to my left [?]
She told me in the morning: Kiss, kiss [?]
I guess we had some fun

Blame Joy
She messed me up and then
She showed me things
I thought I'd never see [?]

Blame Joy
It's dangerous inside her mind
Something she taught me everything [?]

Trivia Edit

  • This song, interestingly, features she-pronouns. However, Kiyoko was not out by the time this song was recorded. She had her public coming out after Girls Like Girls was released as a single, about three years after this song was recorded.
