I’ve been a bit distracted lately which is why I haven’t posted anything in a while. Today, I’ve also been feeling down but as I really wanted to get back into blogging I thought of sharing the music I’ve been listening to recently.
My two top songs are Hate by Cat Power and No Rest for the Wicked by Lykke Li.
Having coincidentally stumbled upon this song, I loved it right away. While the lyrics are very bleak (“I hate myself and want to die”) it was rather the melody and Cat’s voice that grabbed me. My favourite line is (1:21) “The heart wants to explode far away where nobody knows”.
A good friend of mine has once told me about this song and I remember liking it; however, I forgot about it again and only started listening to it (repeatedly) a few weeks ago. I can’t really put my finger on what exactly it is that makes me like this song so much, it just fits my current mood, I guess.
What I’ve noticed regarding the two songs as well is that both have strong openings (in my opinion at least) and that I’m instantly hooked as soon as either of them start playing contrary to some songs that need some time getting into.
