I don't mean for this to become so cryptic, it's just an important piece of the Musical Musings puzzle. See, music, as I've mentioned many times before, is a major part of my life. And it often gives insight into my moods. For example, if I'm listening to Bon Iver, I'm probably stuck inside my own head. Or if I'm listening to The Avett Brothers, I'm probably in a happy place. So lately, I've been trying to trick myself. I have been playing music that makes me feel really happy, hopeful and takes me somewhere else.
I'll get to the point.
Right now, I cannot get enough of the song "We Are Young" by Fun. (feat. Janelle Monáe). It just fills my soul with joy! It's the type of song that makes me want to just dance around with my friends. So, I've been listening to it a lot. For the 3-4 minutes that it plays, I can escape my thoughts and just let the music lift me up. So, Brittany, Lindsay, Kim - I'm looking at you girls. Dance party circa Phil's Deck?
