S L O W E D- 30 DARK LOVE TRACKS 4 QUARANTINE
Everyone is slowed. Coronavirus has our bodies in quarantine, our corona arteries in trauma-lockdown. And it’s hard to remember that there are moments outside these we spend spinning around in our bedrooms, alone. So, inspired by a recent boom in the subgenre of tracks on Youtube that slow and reverb mainstream tracks, I made this set to illustrate the journey of my year, my 10 years.
See, I went a decade in shutdown mode. Trauma, Time took my heart and shook it without remorse. They chuckled as the hours passed into months, then years; and suddenly I saw me in the dark, on my bed every Saturday night, tracing my veins looking for a trace of love. Never was there. Ever. Until it was, one January night this year. And I was grateful, unbelievably so, that it still believed it had a home in my heart. And I stayed that way, even when it hurt–until coronavirus came and took it all away again until who knows when. The message of these tracks is that we are slowed, for now, but I know better than most, love will come back. Life will return.
PLAYLIST AT MY YOUTUBE
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE
ALL THE WAY WITH A THROWAWAY
I’M GONNA THROW, ALL AWAY
LONELY LOVERS WAIT FOREVER
YOU ARE MY OBSESSION
TIME IS A PERCEPTION
LOVE WON’T CURE DEPRESSION
I DON’T PRETEND THAT I’M IN THE DARK
DON’T REGRET COS MY HEART CAN’T TAKE A LOSS
I’D RATHER BE SO OBLIVIOUS
I DON’T EVER WANNA KNOW
DID YOU TAKE MY HEART?
OH MY GOD, I SEE THE WAY YOU SHINE
I BE LYIN’
I’M IN A HOLE
A CLOUD OF MEMORY SURROUNDS
I FELT LIKE I WAS PART OF SOMETHING
AND FOR THAT, I’LL SAY THIS
I’VE NEVER BEEN A PART OF SOMETHING
SO BLISS TO REMINISCE
