Title: what song fits your life right now?
Post by: Allybee on 28 Nov 2010, 20:03
it's like the blog thread but more enigmatic!
also it doesn't necessarily mean that you are where the songwriter was when they wrote it. just that it feels right for you right now. it's about your interpretation, not the original meaning of the song.

for me right now it's "never going back again" by fleetwood mac. obvious choice but it feels so appropriate.

guys you gotta do more than just link shit, i never do anything with linked youtube videos. then again all i ever write about is about songs, and badly at that, so uh. whatever

I'm in that season where I can't deal with warmth and shiny jangly guitars and the like, and I gotta stick to colder sounds and darker keys. I really need to make a new mixtape soon because it's been quite a few months, but it'll have to wait til after these ding dang finals on which my life depends, real talk. I'm fast approaching the point in time, though, where it's been a year since everything sucked, ever, so I think the songs I feel closest to are going to be some sort of sordid somber ordeal that makes me sad because that's what I'm most accustomed to, even though it's just most things that suck now instead of everything.

So basically, all Radio Dept., all the time, but, more specifically, my jam is this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoSAhBy-yzQ), right now. I wish I could write about songs better, but this is one where it's harder for me to describe what it evokes in me because the sounds are too nice and they just kinda swallow me. And I'm starting to have a thing for songs in D. So you should just click it. It's very soundscapey.

I saw this band open for Stars and was absolutely floored, and also the singer man was very attractive.

Slayer- Raining Blood, because it is literally raining blood outside right now. It's pretty messy, and kind of a bummer.

"I Saw Brown" by Black Moth Super Rainbow fits my life pretty dang well right now because all I see is brown and grey and it's fucking stupid but there's acoustic guitars and a weird beat so it's kind of okay actually

The caked is baked but I much preferred the batter,
In part because it had so much potential,
To be delicious and still be influential. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZALEbiYkJ_Q)

On a similar note, this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyGW6jUGtrM).

I think what I'm getting at here is that I quite like that album.

Fake Problems - "Grand Finale" (http://www.youclubvideo.com/audio/134922/fake-problems-grand-finale)

what i thought was a great friendship in my life has been going a bit sour for a while now, and today it pretty much came to a head and was ended.  and somehow i feel like a weight's been taken off my shoulders.  the "you know i am so overjoyed that this bridge is burning down" bit seemed kinda apt.  and i've loved this song since the album came out, so maybe this was a foreshadowing...

Just the way I'm feeling right now; could change, depending on a number of factors.

Some combination of
So basically, all Radio Dept., all the time
and

would probably fit best right now. Coming from not doing too great and feeling quite sorry for myself, to getting stuff back on track & generally improving and meeting this awesome girl.

So instead I'll just go with Phoenix - If I ever feel better.
