music ask! 3,5,9, &15!
3: A song that reminds you of summertime
The song still reminds me of seeing sunbeams with dust particles trapped in them.
5: A song that needs to be played LOUD
Oh man this is kinda tricky, cos I tend towards chill indie music most of the time :P
Let’s go with "i Know This:" by Rachel Kann which is utterly righteous.
9: A song that makes you happy
"The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is out to Get Us!" by Sufjan Stevens. It’s a kinda quiet and melancholic song, but I’ve loved it for so long that hearing it is like having a blanket draped over my shoulders. uwu
15: A song that is a cover by another artist
Wow I listen to so many covers, it’s tricky to narrow it down to just one! Let’s go with this flawless cover of "Jenny" by Lily. Because we all need our daily dose of unrequited lesbian angst.
Thanks for the ask lovely <33
Music asks, chosen at random: 4. 9, 12, 27, and one of your choice!
4: A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about
Oh man I don’t know! A lot of my old music is from an old friend but I’ve had the music for so long that it’s more nostalgic than painful.
I guess I’ll go with "Blood Bank" by Bon Iver because that’s recent enough to be painful. I love the song though,
(Ignore the music video, it’s the first thing to come up when I put the song into Google)
9: A song that makes you happy
The Baseball’s cover of “I don’t feel like dancing.” It’s impossible for me to hear this song without chair dancing.
12: A song from your preteen years
Oh god I could answer with any number of embarrassing things (Avril Lavigne, Panic at the Disco, My Chemical Romance) but instead I’ll go with "Shut Up and Smile" by Bowling for Soup.
I still have quite the fondness for the band, though my familiarity with their stuff ends with their 2009 album Sorry for Partyin’.
27: A song that breaks your heart
"Falling" by The Civil Wars. It’s just really lovely and painful because it describes someone falling out of love with someone else, and they don’t want to but they can’t help it.
30: A song that reminds you of yourself
Every day it starts again
You cannot say if you’re happy
You keep trying to be
Try harder, maybe this is not your year.
Movies, TV screens reflect just what you expected
There’s a world of shiny people somewhere else
Out there following their bliss living easy, getting kissed while you wonder what else you’re doing wrong
Breathe through it, write a list of desires
Make a toast, make a wish, slash some tires
Paint a heart repeating, beating “don’t give up, don’t give up, don’t give up.”
It’s a terribly accurate description of living with un-diagnosed depression, especially with “you wonder what else you’re doing wrong” because it feels like you’re missing something that’s effortless to other people.
(Turns out it’s the brain literally not being able to process being happy/at peace with oneself.)
Thank you for the ask, friend! <3
