I have an appreciation for reviewing and sharing songs that I have been listening to on repeat or just songs for the season- aka my infamous Happy Holigays playlist. Today, I think it is time to share and review some new songs that recently dropped that I think you need to add to your latest playlist, if you haven’t already.
I think I ignore the fact that SAD (seasonal affective disorder) is a thing because I deal with depression year around. So, when the sun comes out I experience this extra burst of energy and renewed sense of self - without acknowledging it’s probably because spring is right around the corner. Also I have a love/hate affection for winter, so I don’t like to believe the season brings me as deep down into hibernation as it actually does - I can’t be alone in that, right?
In the club that has existed in my mind for the past year this is what I assumed we would have been dancing to had we been *safely* allowed to dance the night away together:

Poetry has always felt like meditation in a way, from my perspective. Words that paint a landscape for us if only just for a few stanzas.
I could spare you all the trip down memory lane and just say go listen to the Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtrack (which you should do anyway) - but instead I’ll highlight some of the classics that had me laughing at imagining 13 year old angsty me rocking out to the following songs.
One of my favorite things about myself is my Queerness - I am a friend of Dorothy, just like the other Queers before me.
Through the years I've realized there are three kinds of people out there: 1. Ones that love Christmas music and will start playing it as soon as they possibly can. 2. Ones that tolerate it, but only when (and I mean ONLY when) Christmas is a few days away. 3. Ones that cringe at the sound of it.
Sometimes revisiting the past through music can help us to appreciate where we are in the present.
Music has been and will always be a big part of my life - and I fully believe sharing music is one of the most intimate things people can do.
