Because best things in life aren't things.

Don’t bother saying you’re sorry
Why don’t you come in?
Smoke all my cigarettes again
Every time I get no further
How long has it been?
Come on in now
Wipe your feet on my dreams
You take up my time
Like some cheap magazine
When I could have been learning something
Well, you know what I mean
I’ve done this before
And I will do it again
C’mon and kill me baby
While you smile like a friend
Oh and I’ll come running
Just to do it again
You are the last drink I never should have drunk
You are the body hidden in the trunk
You are the habit I can’t seem to kick
You are my secrets on the front page every week
You are the car I never should have bought
You are the train I never should have caught
You are the cut that makes me hide my face
You are the party that makes me feel my age
You’re like a car crash I can see but I just can’t avoid
Like a plane I’ve been told I never should board
Like a film that’s so bad, but I’ve just got to stay ’til the end
Let me tell you now – it’s lucky for you that we’re friends
If you remember how much easier it is to remember what you would rather forget than remember, than remember what you would rather remember than forget, then you can’t forget how much easier it is to forget what you would rather remember than forget, than forget what you would rather forget than remember.
– Elmira Gazette, quoted in New York Times, Feb. 13, 1891
I have been procrastinating a lot lately and i have to admit, Today’s songs are long overdue.Both songs are similar to songs in John Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band album with regards to the pure intimacy between the artist and listener.
Cecile has once again transformed an indie song into an epic abyss of pure emotion. Like the subconscious, White Sky isn’t afraid to be many things at once. Different sounds fade in and out. A tropical melody transform into dark and mysterious yearnings without any warnings.
Caribou’s very intimate and fragile “Jamelia” is also his hidden magnus opus in his latest album “Swim”. Jamelia sounds like melancholic panic attacks within subconscious of a hopeless romantic.

After being sick for days and couch surfing all over Miami, Resistance is back. All of today’s songs are very special place for me. Beam Me Up is pure disco at its finest. Beam Me Up’s emphatic beauty feels, through acoustic and clear sounds, as if it was a song you once knew and loved but can’t recollect anything about it except the impression it once had on you. Jacques Renault remix is less acoustic and more up-beat (and has a cool jazzy solo at the end).
Joakim’s interpretation of Feel the love is a heavenly vocal infused cowbell jam with deep old school house influences. Feel the auditory love, it’s good to be back.
