Songs

8/09/2015


There is almost unlimited space for the songs I like to listen to. There should be a universe full of them and my aching imagination tells me it already exists. It is funny because when people ask me what music I'm into, they usually wait for a response filled with names of people but I'm much better at offering them song titles that are burned in the back of my mind.
Such as lyrics that are almost too poetic to be sung and metaphors only understood by a few.
But also melodies that are played in the background,
low tunes sung by husky voices,
the transition at 3:45 when the guitar starts playing,
syllables sung a little bit too long.
Songs are universes in themselves.
And I rotate for them. 
P/S: This piece will be part of my upcoming anthology, Naked As We Came.

From the girl who perceives melodious beauty,

  2. I'm totally the same way!! I always play my iTunes in the "most recently added" order. I'm just into almost anything (but country. I just can't with country). Love this post!

  3. I never know what to say when people ask me what kind of music I like! I listen to a very broad genre of music. I love music because it makes you feel -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

    1. Thank you :-) Picking one specific genre - I could never do that! That's just so... narrow-minded? I mean there's so much more beautiful music out there that I probably haven't heard yet. x

  14. Love your thoughts on music--music helps me through the night and keeps me going through the day. I did want to say that your last post on Paper Towns was outstanding too. I can't believe what a good writer you are & how inspirational your writing is. Your thoughts amaze me. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mind with the likes of us :)

    Xoxo, Shelly

  15. I think music is one of the very few things in life that understands the deepest parts of my soul - there is something softly lovely about the way they effortlessly fill up all the dark places with endless light. What a beautiful gift - and you've illustrated it so wonderfully here. xx
