Other than listening to Arcade Fire’s album The Suburbs all the way through, these are the songs I’ve had the best times walking around my neighborhood to. I like ones with a really good walking beat especially. Finding the right music to walk to can be one of the best things and very useful in blocking out the sound of cars and people (daring to invade your dream world!!!). You’ll also find that the best songs for gray rainy days don’t tend to fit the sunny spring days. But that just means more music to search for! So go out! Explore your neighborhood. And find the songs that fit.
Hello, you. June’s theme will be LONGING. Unlike more-acute forms of desire like desperation or need, longing is a sweet ache—more pining for something than dying for it. It’s nostalgia, homesickness, boredom, a persistent feeling of lack, dreaming of escape/the future. It’s summer: summer homes & cottages, stuffy summer bedrooms, sun-bleached memories of summers past. The shadow of September that hangs over June. It’s secret hangouts, crushes, unrequited love.
