what a mess
by Ellis
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Linnea Siggelkow of Ellis explains that this track is about “This tendency that I have, and I think other people [have], to be like, ‘I know this is a bad idea but I’m going to do it anyway.’ The first verse is literally about me cutting my hair, [which is] a really specific instance where I one day felt really alone, hadn’t spoken to another person, and was feeling a little wacky… I couldn’t stop myself. By the end I was crying, cutting my hair, being like, ‘what am I doing?’ And I was thinking about how that plays into so many other things when I get self-destructive. I can tell myself over and over, this is a bad idea, you can opt out now but, for some reason, I follow through.” https://ellissongs.bandcamp.com/track/what-a-mess

The Morning Fog
by Kate Bush
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

Kate Bush says this is "very much a song of seeing perspective, of ... being so grateful for everything that you have, that you're never grateful of in ordinary life because you just abuse it totally. And it was also meant to be one of those kind of "thank you and goodnight" songs. You know, the little finale where everyone does a little dance and then the bow and then they leave the stage."

by Andrew Bird

Bird explains the song: "We find ourselves in a cold civil war. Everyone is playing their part too well. Certain actors are reaping power and wealth from divisiveness. Echoes of the Spanish Civil War when fascists and clergy win because they put up a united front against the individualistic and principled (yet scattered) left. We can turn this ship around but need to step back and be honest with ourselves about what's happening while it's still relatively bloodless." http://www.andrewbird.net/
