If there’s a song that captures the unease, persistent fear, and tentative hope of 2020 so far, it’s this one.
It’s a mix of grief, sadness and assurance that everything will be alright, even if the mood of the song leads you to believe that it may not always be so. It’s simultaneously discomforting and reassuring, and that makes for a great song that can be played repeatedly, interpreted differently every time based on how one feels in the moment.
Give it a listen:
“It ain’t alright, the hardness of my head. Now, close your eyes and spin around. Say, hard times you could find, it. Ain’t the way that you want. But it’s still alright”
