Topic: Introduce us to a song you like and say something about it.

The only criteria are:

1) You like it.

2) You can say something about it.

3) It's reasonable to assume you're introducing more than half of us to it.



Song: Symptom Finger
Artist: The Faint
Something: This song was the first track on one of my favorite home-made mix CDs. Great opener.

Re: Introduce us to a song you like and say something about it.

I posted this in another thread, but this song has taken on a new significance recently for me.

Song: Oculus
Artist: Project 86
Something: It's a reflection upon death and life and things remembered. Since my grandfather passed, it's been on my mind.

God loves you!

Song: Out of Pawn
Artist: Anaïs Mitchell
Something: This one contains what's probably my favorite lyric of all time:

SPOILER Show

You can hold her hand, you can kiss her face
Go slow if you can, 'cause the world is a very sad place,
And when she leaves, she'll leave no trace,
And the world will still be there.

Such a simple way of tearing your heart out.

I'm not gonna stop at like, sorry.

Song: Dryad of the Woods
Artist: Pain of Salvation
Something: This instrumental is my favorite instrumental that ever was. It's become the theme of my relationship with my girlfriend, because I used to play it to her back in '11 (5 years before we got together, that is). It's the first time I ever dared play an instrument in front of someone else (took me a while, yeah). It's the song I've most played in my life, my acoustic guitar could almost play it without me by now. It's the most poetic piece of guitar music I've ever known, full of melancholy and timeless. It puts visions of autumnal trees under a soft rain in my head - it's one of those pieces of music that comment nature.

It's really cool.

For lack of other comments at this time, I'll also mention that I started singing 'Stairway to Heaven' over it a couple times.

Song: Playgirl BGM
Artist: Yoshihide Otomo
Something: Cool jazz on speed, female moans, video game sound effects, and an overdubbed sax player who sounds eventually like he's trying to blow his liver out through the horn.  Just madness.  Never fails to put a smile on my face.

For the next hour, everything in this post is strictly based on the available facts.

Song: The Good That Won't Come Out
Artist: Rilo Kiley
Something: This has been my favorite song for the last year or so. Probably unhealthy, as it's a complete bummer, but I see a lot of myself in it. I especially like listening to it in the winter months—the whole muted sound is reminiscent of snowfall for whatever reason.

I do this thing where I think I'm real sick,
But I won't go to the doctor to find out about it,
'Cuz they make you stay real still in a real small space,
As they chart up your insides and put you on display—
They'd see all of it, all of me, all of it

Re: Introduce us to a song you like and say something about it.

Song: Bang Your Drum
Artist: Dead Man Fall
Something: This song was probably the first real step out of the depression I found myself in a couple years ago. The verses completely applied - overthinking, staying awake at night too long / waking up way too early, even something about the low-energy way it's sung; then the chorus being, "Get out there, do your thing. Go be you." Which is when I finally got back to editing for the release-a-day I was going for on YouTube at the time. It's such a continuous, uplifiting build, and the no-budget video makes it feel more personal and relateable too.

I recommend it when I recognize similar circumstances in others.

Something: Since this turned into a list of sad songs that can lift you back up, here's mine. One of them anyway. I guess it's important to know that those down times are common among us all, right down to dwelling on them long after they should be over.
