Pre-Holiday (non-Holiday) Playlist

As the beginning of the holiday seasons is about to begin I thought I’d share a few (non-holiday) songs that I find moving for one reason or another (and a snippet of the lyrics to explain why I admire the songwriting). Discovering a new song is like the universe validating your existence, if only for a few minutes. Songs are a lot like flash fiction… except infinitely better and written by much cooler people.

 

 

Sam Isaac – Bears

This dashboard is staying cold  I’m so scared of the truth and automatic doors  I’m proud of this map I’ve drawn  These paper lines with red pins on

 

Owl John – Los Angeles Be Kind

You exhaust me, you know  Bellowing black exhaust pipe smoke  And the smog won’t wash from this unsuitable immigrant skin

 

Phoebe Bridgers – Motion Sickness

I have emotional motion sickness  Somebody roll the windows down  There are no words in the English language  I could scream to drown you out

 

José González – Cycling Trivialities

But don’t know which way to turn Every trifle becoming big concerns All this time you were chasing dreams Without knowing what you wanted them to mean

 

Cassettes Won’t Listen – Freeze and Explode

I’m getting tired of being lost  It’s time I control  As my crew flies like astronauts  I watch as we get old

 

Cavetown – Devil Town

I forgot my name again  I think that’s something worth remembering  Spiders in your favorite shoes  Just leave them be ’cause they’re more scared of you

 

The Reindeer Section – Grand Parade 

I taste your skin, it melts and sings,  Yes, we can win, I’m sure.

 

McCafferty – Daddy Long Legs

I think I found out where I do not belong  Stuck inside my head here with all my songs  And I ran so far that I lost the time  And I realize now the whole world is mine

The Barr Brothers – Burn Card 

I ask the moon for orchids  She said “How ’bout a drop of blood from a rolling stone?”  She never fails to tickle my funny bone

 

Local Natives – When Am I Gonna Lose You

Engrave the silhouette of you dancing  A shadow play that we’re cast in  On the cabin walls

 

Dan Mangan – Jude In the Mountains

Timing is everything  Moments arrive  And it ain’t no accident planets align  Forces combine  Chances collide  Agents decide

 

 

 

“When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest.”
― Henry David Thoreau
