There is so much going through my life right now that I have decided to discuss none of it and write about something that’s on my mind (as usual…)
I just went through my entire music library deleting songs because I was massively annoyed by the fact that every time I shuffle my songs something embarrassing or ancient comes on. Side note: this activity was extremely rejuvenating… I kind of feel like when my music is organized, so am I.. Is that a thing?
And so I started to notice a few trends. The words “fire”, “love”, “walk”, “young”, “stay”, “breathe” and “stay” appeared freakishly frequently.
1. These are simply common song title words
2. I am drawn to genres which are more likely to include these words
3. [the psychoanalyst in me] I am somehow drawn to these words due to past experiences or evolutionary predispositions. Perhaps I am attracted to the word “fire”, as it sparks (pun intended) a passion inside of me. Perhaps the word “youth” appeals to the adventure-craving, wild side of my imagination.
And I actually discovered some outstanding music that has gotten lost in my music library over the years.. Either way I thought it was cool. Try it.
