What Song Best Describes Your Life Right Now
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:03:38 PM »
Because why not have a music version of the "your life as a picture" thread or whatever it's called.

I'll start with a few things going on right now for me:
Dealing with professor's sh—y final project instructions/ruberics like "Hate This" by Grendel (This song actually was playing as I finished one of my papers. I was amused.)

Looking around at my university's clubs practically all falling apart because executive officers this past year have been manipulative liars and one of the big clubs had an almost embezzlement scandal like "What the F— is Wrong With You?" by Combichrist

Trying to explain to my friend getting out of high school that his responsibilities as they stand ain't sh— like "It Gets Worse" by Mindless Self Indulgence

Now mind you that all of these songs are explicit...which is exactly why they're a perfect snapshot of my life.

Sonic Youth's "The Diamond Sea" has been the most defining song of my life since college started. It's all in the tone, some of the lyrics, and certainly Thurston's delivery but also all the noise and chaos as well. It blends everything in the right fashion. It's a perfect 10/10 track but also something that plays in my head a lot, it just sums up my being somehow, it's all in the tones. It likely fits because I got Washing Machine right at the end of summer and I played it almost every Saturday and soon got the shirt, but you know.

Also Seiko Oomori's "Nama Kill The Time 4 You" reflects my being as well. It's more of the fun idealized version of things, but still with a bit of madness in the chorus. When I hear the intro it's instantly warm and feels like all is good. It's a song with the right amount of craziness and comfy pop appeal.

Mariko Goto's "4 Gatsu 6 Nichi" though, this song defines my life in such a profound manner. For me the defining songs are not so much lyrics that I get, but just the tones and sounds of everything. Mariko goes mad in this song but it's all under this almost reflective melody. The drums are crazy in this song, as is the end. Another song I listened to a lot in September that has returned to things now.

Ever's "Sleepyhead" is what I wish my life sounded like.

I love this idea.

I now want to give it some proper thought, but the first brain fart that came out when i read "Sleepyhead" was an icebath of realization that someone ELSE relates to "Sleepyhead" in a life-identity way! I've sometimes thought its what the inside of my head would sound like composed...But when i listened to the link, turns out it's a different "Sleeyhead" - Not sure what this says about me but some times my brain sounds like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThbJtOAkHy4

Ha ha, weeeeell I think they are two pretty different songs. Just a little bit eh? I would imagine the instantly disappointment when you except someone to finally relate to this weirdo song and then it's actually just some cassette tape quality jangle pop. That was actually a very enjoyable odd ball track, some puzzling vocals but super cool effects and synth parts. Plot twists here and there and overall great tones. Cool stuff. Those breaks after the main vocals are supreme actually, this is a group worth looking into...

LOL yup just a little different.

It's kind of cool to compare anyway. And i wonder if there are people out there who match our music-links...somewhere out there..!?

After another surge of grief, "Dead Girl Walking" by Kidneythieves.

I hate how it seems everything points back to her...and I never thought that after not seeing her for almost three years, I'd develop something like survivor's guilt over her death.
