My favorite part of this song starts at 2:24. I turn it up so loud in my car specifically at that part because the combination of the trumpets and his voice is so beautiful and it just describes what I'm feeling...
To me the track of the week I post is very personal. I overthink it. I try to decide which track fits best with the concept of the playlist, if the placement of the track is the right one. I pretty much drive myself insane, but I love it.
Let’s be honest we’ve all played and listened to love songs even when we don’t have anyone in mind. And I’m guilty of one of my friends pointing that out to me recently. She said “all you listen to are songs about love”.
I still search for your eyes in a crowded room because I miss the way crinkled on the sides when you smiled or got too high. Ironic, because the name of this bad is called Hate Drugs.
I just got back from Lollapalooza and Honne was the very first artist I went to see. It was one of the most incredible moments, being able to experience this song live and to share it with so many other people who felt as passionate about the song as myself.
One of my favorite television series is One Tree Hill and it’s definitely because I identify with one of the characters so much, Peyton Sawyer. She was a young woman growing up in Tree Hill who loved music so much that her storyline always linked back to her love for music. So in Peyton’s words “Sometimes things find you when you need them to find you. I believe that. and for me it's usually songs lyrics (Peyton Sawyer, One Tree Hill)”.
The lyrics are emotional, romantic, but at the same time honest. You can hear the longing behind Dev’s airy voice, which is accompanied by an upbeat guitar riff. Throughout the song you can hear and feel everything Dev is trying to portray because you can sense the hopelessness and distress.
The lyrics are magical in the way they paint a picture. The way the object of the song is simplified to an electric color.
Isn’t it frightening how quickly time passes? I have a hard time grasping the fact that I’m about to graduate from college because it feels as if I was just a freshman in high school not to long ago.
Play this song late at night. Play it with the windows down. Feel that warm summer breeze run through your hair.
There’s been so many times when I couldn’t decide if the memory I was thinking of was real or just a dream. It just goes to show how lost in my mind I am all the time.
Even though I love watching romantic comedies, I want an unconventional love story. I think that Father John Misty does an amazing job writing about love by portraying it for what it truly is.
How We Feel soundtracks every adventure I’ve had with friends, it expresses in words the things that I could never say out loud. But most of all it embodies who I am as a person because as one of my infinity songs it made me who I am.
When was the last time you looked at the stars? Not just glance at them, but stared at them long enough that it started to look like they were dancing. Just because they’re far away doesn’t mean they don’t exist.
Sometimes you just need to be alone. You need to clear your mind and blow off some steam. While at times when you’re alone you can become you’re own worst enemy, remember all the amazing places your mind has taken you before.
I remember hearing this song months after the concert and being plagued by the feeling that I heard it before, but neither did I remember where or by whom. But that didn’t matter because the blissfulness that overcame me was enough for me to know that I’d found a song I never even knew I needed.
