Demons

“When You feel my heat, look into my eyes, its where my demons hide, its where my demons hide” – ‘Demons’ Imagine Dragons

Everyone has their little secrets that have changed their lives critically. These are our demons. Our demons can been seen as the chances we failed to take, the love we failed to share, the success we lack in life, our mental states of mind, our social groups or status, the wrongs we have committed, and so on. Although it may not always be visible, our demons are present in our minds and control the way that we see the world. Only some people will ever know about those demons or even be able to tell that you have any. This song by Imagine Dragons is about how our demons affect the way that we are with other people and the way in which we see the world or our lives. Demons is a beautifully crafted song as the changes in tempo of the music are perfectly coordinated to the lyrics of the song. I absolutely love this song as I can relate to it completely. Sometimes we enter into dark periods in life, it take a special person to peer into your eyes and sense the demons inside.

 

For The Nights I Can’t Remember

This song is just pure perfection and beauty. I love this song for the mere fact that I can relate to it in some sort. I would like to think that I am a … different kind of a person, and not always in the best of ways. In life, everyone needs that someone to stand by them through thick and thin and still love/care for them when things turn shitty. That’s what this song is about. This song paints the perfect picture of having lost yourself but finding yourself through the strength and love of the one that truly cares for you. Some times we loose ourselves and forget our true purpose; we need some one in our lives to guide us back to a place of normality. “For the Nights I Can’t Remember” shows us that sometimes we need to step back from our problems and see those who are their to help us through them. Pain and conflict doesn’t last forever.

 

Get Lucky

I have always loved Daft Punk. They have done many wonderful things, e.g. Tron Legacy Soundtrack, Robot Rock (aka Stronger by: Kanye West), Technologic (aka Touch It by: Busta Rhymes) and One More Time (Celebrate). They do EDM (Electronic Dance Music) at its finest. Their musical tracks are so great, that they have been sampled in numerous songs by many artists such as the ones cited above. Now, Pharell. I have always loved his strange musical sense because it has always seemed to work for him. His numerous collaborations with artists such as Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, and Gwen Stefani have changed the way that we view certain artists musically. These two great musical forces coming together to work on “Get Lucky” was just amazing, and quite lucky for us! This song uses a psychedelic EDM feel while Pharell”s “chill” and “smooth” tone of voice help to make the song seem like a carefree hit. This sounds like a song that you would have heard playing back in the 1980’s – 1990’s. It has a vintage sound and feel which makes it even better. I absolutely love this song, and I do feel that it could be my song of the summer (if nothing better comes out soon). Listen,  Dance, Be happy, stay up all night to this song, stay up all night to get lucky ;).
