Paloma Faith – Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful

Anthem for bad data visualization artists everywhere! Chorus (first instance 0:55)

  • Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
  • Just close your eyes and make believe.
  • Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
  • I am happy to deceive you.


  • I didn’t want to speak the honest truth
  • So I spit out lies that aimed to soothe
  • Chorus

Great clip or background audio for presentation.

VisualJournalism blog also has a very funny graphic related to pie charts and her hat from this video.
