What song are you currently addicted to?

Sometimes i find a song that i end up playing on repeat for almost the whole day, i bet many of you know what i mean. I even get cravings for days, often playing it directly after i wake up to set the tone of my day.

The songs i cannot stop listening to at the moment are Milk by Sweet Trip and Be On Fire by Chrome Sparks

    "I Feel Better" by Gotye

    Though he was considered by most to be a one-hit wonder with "Somebody That I Used To Know," the entire album is pretty good. If you haven't listened to the album, do yourself a favor and check it out. Another favorite of mine from it is the corky song "State of the Art."

      Easy Way Out is also underappreciated.

      Easy Way Out is also underappreciated.

      Brain–dead from boredom,
      I'm led to distraction,
      Scratching the surface of life.
      Nothing really happens,
      But it's easy to keep busy,
      When you tell yourself you're travelling right.

      I see your point of it being corky in a way. But there is nothing wrong with a good ole feel good track to lighten the mood. I have heard this one before, my immediate thought is that i heard this in a movie at some point? If not, it would fit super well in a light feel good movie, where the antagonist finally got the girl, dancing down the street with flowers and confetti :D

    The "songs giving me life" (as NPR puts it) right now are probably Tiger by Sons of Kemet, and a live recording of One Word by Mahavishnu Orchestra.

      I feel like you might like affro-beat and African jazz? I love listening to Ethiopian jazz, or as it is called ethio jazz. Where my favorite music composer is Mulatu Astatke

      Without going to deep i think your view of the song and its video left an impression on me. A personal one. I think all art including music have personal meaning for each person. Good music are often able to convey emotion, What those emotions mean are different to each person.

      Thank you for giving me a look into what the emotions that grew within you while listening to this, and what they meant to you.

    Open Mike Eagle - Dark Comedy Late Show, one of the more intense tracks from this period for him. It's one of those that I have to hear every time I think of it., there isn't a hook, no repetition, it's just a solid track.

    There are more, but that song is just one that digs in, and I can't shake it until I listen to the entire Dark Comedy Late Show EP a few times.

    I found a song really only on youtube after the artist deleted it from his tumblr and I've been really enjoying it. It's a fun synthwave-y song made by the guy who made Resonance (HOME). It's called High Five

    I've also in the past few weeks been addicted to this 80's japanese city pop song and this song which is sort of a jazzy guitar-y indie song that I really like.

    Right now, it's been Jackrabbit by San Fermin on loop. They're trained in classical, but branch out into some experimental rock stuff. The true value in this album is found in the lyrics. I'm convinced they'll resonate with anybody lonely enough to listen to them.

    It's betweem that and The Moss by Cosmo Sheldrake. A friend introduced me to him recently, and I'm astounded by his ability to merge lyrical masterpieces advocating for the value of folklore over fact while maintaining an adequately mellow rhythm.

    I don't tend to get on "kicks" like this with individual songs--I do it sometimes more with albums or artists. But if I was going to with a song, it'd have to be Joanna Newsom's "You Will Not Take My Heart Alive" or maybe "Sapokanikan." In the former, whenever she gets to the title line, "You Will Not Take My Heart Alive," it melts my heart. The words don't particularly have a lot of meaning for me (at least not consciously--I suppose they probably do, deep down!), but the feeling she puts into them sure does. I love it very much, but then again, I love a lot of her music. She has a great voice and there's a kind of magic to her songs and sound.

    clipping. - The Deep

    clipping. is an experimental hip hop group, featuring Daveed Diggs of Hamilton fame on vocals. The Deep is an immensely interesting single released by the group in 2018. I highly recommend reading along with lyrics as you listen, as there is an impressive amount of world-building, clever wordplay, and allusions packed into these five and a half minutes.
