#2017 - 20 Favorite of the Decade
I wanted to share 20 songs that meant something to me throughout the last decade (2019).
preface: As I put these songs together, I've realized my taste in music is not very 'vibey' or 'taste-making,' but I don't care. you'll have to get your dose of undiscovered cool from somewhere else. The tracks I will be sharing aren't meant as a 'best-of,' but more of a snapshot at moments from each year through specific songs. these are songs that gave me the 'wildfeels' for one reason or another, and I'm glad to share them with you.
2017 - Bleachers - Everybody Lost Somebody
This whole record is my jam, but, this song bounces. I love the saxophone, the vocal performance, and the Springsteen synth. This song feels like a ripped page from Jack's journal, and he said as much back in 2017, when he shared the story of the song. The loss of his sister in highschool is memorialized here, but jack extends a hand, almost as a flotation device to counter the temptation of drowning in the loss - "everybody lost somebody." It's the human experience.
