It's been a while since I've done a music post, so I thought I'd share the playlist I recently created. I have another metal playlist and I listened to it constantly, however, it had too many songs and I found myself skipping some of them. When creating playlists, I find it's usually best when I split them up into specific genres. Since there are so many subgenres of metal, it wasn't as specific as would like it to be.
This is going to be the last music post I write for a while. I feel that I haven't been discovering much new music lately, and I also think I'm ready for some change. Change is a good thing every once in a while, so I'm going to start doing something new! In the meantime, I've been listening to Interpol again lately. That is also fitting because the music that inspired me to do this was by Interpol. The perfect way to wrap this up, I think, is to end it with this song.
There's only one more day left of November which means that it's about to officially be Christmas time. Alright, that's debatable. But I personally believe Christmas time starts on December 1st. Those of you who start decorating before Thanksgiving are crazy but I also respect your passion.
I've been learning a lot about love, sacrifice, and community. It's hard. When I feel like I'm giving my all, it seems like my all is never enough. To be completely honest, I'm trying to love more like Jesus and that's a goal I'll never reach, but it's all about the process.
I have to be honest, I wasn't paying any attention to the lyrics until today. However, I'm glad I did. This song clearly expresses the struggles of battling temptations, addictions, and guilt. That's something that has been on my mind recently - chains, power, and confusion.
Somehow I forgot to do my music post on Thursday this week, so I'm making up for that today. I've come across a few new metal/rock songs that I think are interesting, other than that, nothing has been significant enough that I believe holds a deeper meaning to me. Enjoy!
I only have one new song today, but it's a good one. The more I listen to Silversun Pickups the more I love them and the more I wonder why some people don’t. Some can't seem to get over the fact that the lead vocalist is a man, but, I fail to see why that's relevant. I love his voice, I love the musicality, and I'm really loving this song. Check it out!
Things have been a little off lately. I've been feeling a bit isolated, and I've been feeling a bit down. I tend to think that during times like this, the music I listen to plays a big part in the memories I associate with this specific point in life. I don't like isolation, and I don't like feeling trapped, but this music will probably remind me of this time. But for now, it serves a different purpose: to comfort me.
Today I was in a bit of a post-punk mood and, yes, I listen to other music besides metal. I started getting into this genre a few years back and ever since then I've grown to love it more and more. These songs I'm sharing today are not at all new to me, in fact, you've probably heard them a lot too. (If you like Stranger Things you've definitely heard the last song.) Regardless, it feels like a post-punk kind of day to me.
This morning I noticed two songs in my metal playlist that I must've forgotten about over time. I assume I heard them once in the past, saved them, forgot about them, and now I'm re-discovering them today. Other than that, I haven't done much exploration this past week, and I've mainly been listening to the same music. (Tool, System of a Down, Korn, etc.)
