It’s been a while since I put out another TunesDay playlist. In the midst of trying to stay afloat during this semester, I definitely put my blog on the backburner. But, I’ve been collecting songs to incorporate into new playlists for you all!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to push out a playlist on Soundcloud considering some of the songs I wanted to use weren’t available on the site, but I made this one on my Spotify account. Hopefully y’all can access it alright!
This particular playlist (entitled: sad boi feels aesthetic because there really isn’t another way to characterize it) has been keeping me company on chilly Pittsburgh nights and during my morning walks to campus.
The 1975 definitely produce my go-to sad boi songs, but I’m really starting to dig LANY. Their tune, 4EVER!, has been on repeat. It’s slightly akin to Carly Rae Jepsen’s synthpop/80’s-vibe album, Emotion. All in all, I can’t complain. Even sad bois need some synthpop lovin’.
What are some of your go-to sad boi feels song choices?
Share them with me and I might add them in!
They say to write about what we know.
I know love.
I own love.
I give love.
So, “write about love,” I think.
The love I know is raw.
Unfiltered by rationale,
held together by imperfect people
who are okay with being imperfect
The love I know is platonic.
A word that doesn’t do this love any sort of
because it always holds me together,
lifts me up,
is the love I take most for granted.
The love I know is familial.
The longest relationship I’ve ever known,
transcending bodies and time and borders.
The love I know is strength.
bounces off walls I try to contain them in.
The love I know is changing.
Quiet on some days
and loud on others;
whispers in gratitude and shouts out its joy.
The love I know is a love I haven’t found yet–
is waiting in a bookstore or a coffeeshop
or a computer screen.
is patient, because it’s what I lack.
is used to being put on hold,
because it knows I have a lot of love
The love I know is our friendship,
is living a life I never planned for;
is life itself;
is me figuring it out
over and over again.
