To be honest, I have been going through a lot lately and I don’t exactly know how I feel about some things. I was watching my favourite show, This Is Us, and this song came on and it was as if I found clarity and peace within myself, even if it was only for one minute. When I later googled it, it was called Into the Mystic by Van Morrison. I listened and listened to this song over and over again on repeat and I felt calmer each time I did and I felt at peace each time I did. Time stopped for a moment and everything was finally okay. Then I went searching for more of his music and actually stumbled upon a few that I was quite familiar with. I made this playlist of my top 6 Van Morrison songs to help me calm down when I am stressed and anxious. You can access them via Spotify below. Happy listening!
I originally stumbled upon this song on an acoustic listening Spotify playlist. I then went to research more about the artist, JP Cooper, and I found the more mainstream pop version of the song. This is probably one of the cutest songs I have ever heard, however it is not too lyrically complex which allows for a more easy listening experience. I have been listening to this song on repeat as it is just great period and the artists voice amplify the song. This is one of those songs that you will find yourself listening too repeatedly on a road trip.
I have heard this song in the past but I have never truly appreciated its creative genius until about 3 days ago. I was browsing through a Spotify Playlist one day and this song was on the list. Since I haven’t heard this song in years, I decided to press play as a throwback moment. As soon as I heard it, I was absolutely drawn in by the upbeat sounds and the chorus. I also liked the fact that there wasn’t a ton of swearing in this song, compared to our Rap/Trap music today. It was kind of a nice moment to sit back and appreciate what Hip-Hop used to be in all its greatness. I may not be a hip-hop/rap connoisseur, but I can truthfully say that this is a good song!
