Synonymous underlyings to the name of this playlist… a self reflective thought where the listener can question their own consciousness.
As the track of the week, “The Hearse” is the song that I wanted to present for us to remember all the heroes and giants left us this year. Hope you all enjoy the emotion and sentiment in this song.
With the elements of happiness, hallucination, violence, and misery, “Mama’s Gun” is a delightful and heartbreaking song with an odd sense of beauty.
This week, two songs that I wanted to present is Lana Del Rey’s Fucked My Way Up To The Top and Seven Devils by Florence + The Machine.
This week’s track has just enough umph to energize, while also looping you through yesterday’s thoughts. OTR, an Ohio native, adds his creative, melancholic sound over the Denmark duo’s poppy electric sound.
And so I get up, leave my room, head out onto the rooftops. I’ve done this a lot lately. A Nightwalk to calm my troubled soul.
This vast lake, tranquil beneath a terminal sky. Lying, floating amidst a wash of mirrored stars, drifting peacefully as the atmosphere burns…
A crumpled note, scrawled in red — ‘If only they knew. The show I have in store for them, oh if only they knew…
A lifetime has passed; an ocean of eternity has washed over me…
‘I’d been so long in this wilderness that I thought I’d never see another soul again. One by one our tiny band had fallen apart, lost along the way or through a loss of heart, until only I remained…’
For me, a winning song is one that combines atmosphere and power to deliver the listener to an entirely new world. One that energises them, motivates them, and refreshes them.
