ok, so there is a hokey forest sex scene that keeps this video from being amazing, but disregard it. let’s look at everything else that’s amazing: the song itself is floaty, ethereal, with a beat that ties you down enough so that you don’t float off into the heavens, and it builds up like love. the closeups of forest creatures is so wonderful. i want to see more snake scales & turtle shells & snails unfurling their eye stalks. the star and forest shots hit me right in the heart. now pardon me, while i watch this video a few more times in a row.
thanks to sian, i am hooked on this song right now
CHANGE YOUR OWN DAMN LIFE GEEZ why is this song so catchy
at least i didn’t put that new drake song here, i like it too but it has only like five lines and besides the video is rubbish, at least this one has a baby tiger and nipples
swoon central! “long gone” by mary epworth. seriously 60s video, but more modern sound.
here is a good song to energize you, or for a grey morning, or for a sunshiney day, or for when you are walking down the street.
(ps – i’ve been trying to make a mix on 8tracks but it hasn’t been working. more musical goodness to follow as soon as possible!)
first encountered in this incredible video of a woman’s quest to teach herself to dance in a year (her outlook on life is so inspiring! if karen cheng can approach obstacles with such vigour, why can’t i?)
blah blah, here’s the song
okay, sorry about the radio silence–first i was in california, and then a whirlwind after i got home, and then and then and then…
but here’s something small, a little musical offering. i’m so in love with this song right now! it’s dancey and wonderful and reminds me of my friend chris chan (he got a crush on serena ryder like 10 years ago because he knows everything about the canadian indie music scene and it was cute then and it’s still cute now). on top of that, i’m in a lovespace and so lovey music makes me happy! your love is like an ocean indeed.
back to the swoony days of my late teens. i’ve always been prone to romanticism, and over nothing more than music. the best songs hit me right in the solar plexus and make me happy and sad and bittersweet and twisting achy inside. i love the tension in this song. it feels that beautiful space before a first kiss: after you know that you want to very much indeed but before you actually touch. that feeling, pre-kiss tension, is the best but also the worst when it stretches out for hours and this is what the song reminds me of.
it’s wonderful for the added touch of mystery, like the last scene in lost in translation, such a tease because i want to know what was said.
