Song of the Day: Within

Today’s song is Within by Daft Punk. My favorite band is Daft Punk. They have been since I was a kid. This song showcases why I love them so much. It blends heart-breaking piano and beautiful confusion. It’s… Read More

Song of the Day: Young and Beautiful

Today’s song is Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey. A haunting ballad. It centers on a young lover contemplating about whether love can last. Many worry about the fleeting essence of youth and the changes that time brings,… Read More

Song of the Day: Jump

Today’s song is Jump by Van Halen. Bright. Fun synth (that is a huge departure from the rest of Van Halen’s work). A bit too upbeat for someone contemplating jumping off a building. And I know baby, just… Read More

Song of the Day: Synesthesia

Today’s song is Synesthesia by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which information meant to stimulate one sense stimulates several. Imagine hearing colors or touching noise. It acts like that and I find… Read More

Song of the Day: La La Land

Today’s song is La La Land by Demi Lovato. If I catch any flack for spotlighting this, whatever. I still dig it. Yeah, it’s bubbly and has dorky “Disney Angst”. Doesn’t make it any less interesting. I am… Read More

Today’s song is Fool For Love by Lord Huron. Indie-rock. Not for everyone but I enjoy the tempo. Starts with fantastical elements and melts into a ballad (with a twang). I drift into the great unknown. I really… Read More

Today’s song is Grow As We Go by Ben Platt. Time for a softer song from Ben Platt that caught my attention last year. Particularly enjoy the focus shifting between the backing acoustic guitar and the vocals. You… Read More

Song of the Day: 99 Red Balloons

Today’s song is 99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger. Yeah, another cover. I adore the original, but this one capitalizes on early 2000’s nostalgia (punk-rock). It also makes it abundantly clear how dark this song about accidental global nuclear… Read More

Song of the Day: A Change Of Heart

Today’s song is A Change Of Heart by The 1975. You’ve likely heard of this British pop-rock band. This is one of their melancholy songs. Quite a fun music video as well. I never found love in the city…. Read More
