I have theme songs for everything. Songs that remind me of how I felt at a certain time in a particular place with a specific person. Songs that I am obsessed with in that moment that make me feel alive.
I have never been a huge music fan. I don’t go to concerts (why would I pay money for something that sounds better on my iPhone?), it takes me weeks to get around to new releases (still haven’t seen the "Hotline Bling" video) and I have probably only listened to one album all the way through in my life. And yet, I am always listening to music.
Music has this special way of making everything better. People who are “really into music” make fun of me for listening to my favorite song on repeat until I hate it. But I love that doing this means that this one song will always be associated with one time in my life—it brings back memories better than anything else and, because I like the song, even the sad ones are good.
So I’m going to share my song of the week with you, my anthem for the rollercoaster I’ve been on lately. It’s called "Borderline," and it describes me, at this time, in this place, with these people, perfectly—for now.
I’ll have a new one next week, and I’ll probably find it on Street’s Spotify account. Hit up @34st–music and maybe you’ll find yours as well.
