Someone (or something) save me from this misery
For two days, I’ve been contemplating on the things I like and dislike about my job. On how money ironically hinders my passion and fulfills my hierarchy of needs. On how I am emotionally stable on where I am or how would it be like to get what I want but not what I need. And things like that.
Just thinking about the what if’s and could-have-beens make me fear about what I currently have and what I will surely have in the future. It makes me feel depressed, to tell you the truth.
(I hate it when I say to tell you the truth in my blog entries because ever since I’ve read that from Perks of Being A Wallflower, it sticked with me. So whenever I feel like telling an anecdote or a feeling just to emphasize its honest nature, I tell it. So much for something that I love to hate but still use anyway.)
Going back, my usual savior from the heavy burdens of life was food. Eating anything and everything I crave for, to the point that I gain weight too much and I burn money too much. But now, I’m redirecting myself to a new savior: music.
Today is indie band discovery day. I’ve researched some and luckily found a handful of good bands to listen to.
And I recommend you to listen to these:
We are the Tide – Blind Pilot (my feel good, hopeful song)
And we don’t know what’s left, but we feel it’s coming back soon
So we’re standing in the street staring at a blood red moon,
We are the tide, we are the tide,
And none of us save the day, the war it told you
This Orient – Foals (my I-wish-I-have-someone-to-sing-this-song-to song)
It’s your heart, it’s your heart
That gives me this western feeling
Do you know, you give me
You give me this western feeling
Future starts slow – The Kills (my upbeat-pity-party-song. how ironic)
No longing for the moonlight
No longing for the sun
No longer will I curse the bad I’ve done
If there’s a time when your feelings gone, I wanna feel it
Great Love – Vacationer (my the-one-that-got-away song)
I just hope that you know
We found our great love everybody needs a great love
With someone .. everybody ..cut me in the perfect little frame of time
I feel it all – Feist (my I’m-strong-but-I-get-weak-too song)
I didn’t rest, I didn’t stop
Did we fight, did we talk?
Ooh, I’ll be the one who’ll break my heart
And there’s many more to come! Ohai. Save me from this misery, indie bands.
