It’s a MMMM.
Short for moody musical Monday morning. I feel compelled to share a selection of songs that reside on a shelf in my heart’s museum. A place reserved for very cherished things. I have carefully curated a list for your enjoyment. So please indulge, reflect, comment on your unique experience with these sounds. Music speaks a different language to each and every listener. I find that concept endlessly fascinating.
Let’s get lost.
I don’t know if we’re in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here / So am I
Musing: In my humble opinion, this one of the most romantic songs ever composed. The tiptoeing reverb, aching bass and dreamy lyrics combine effortlessly and make this a timeless piece of sentimental love.
You’re dislocated, don’t be like that
And you smile when you drive in, like you’re never coming back
Musing: This song is the personification of contemplative heartache, as I have experienced it.
I’ve looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high
Musing: This song is smooth and gritty somehow at the same time. When he croons the word “sweet” in the line about strawberry wine? Ridiculous.
My favorite line from this is… every. single. line.
Everything. It speaks for itself. I can’t even describe something so beautiful.
