What it says on the tin. Share some song(s) you've been particularly fond of listening to recently because of the lyrics, the instrumentation, and/or it just generally feels right to listen to at the time. Whatever your reasons are, you don't necessarily have to share them; but a story to go along with your song of choice could be sort of cathartic to share as well.
I'll start with some sunshine and rainbows right off the bat:
Sometimes, despite how many good prospects you have to look forward to, you can't help but feel like you're falling apart inside and you have to entertain the external circus around you. This is a song for those times.
Right, I'm sure that's as easy to follow up on as anything. Your turn.
Never heard the song before but when listened for the first time it instantly brought back the memories of first love, the chords, the lyrics and the rhythm combine the sound of the truest relation you'll ever know. It quite literally reminds me of her and I have often thought.
I have to talk about this one; ultimate mood for life and probably my favourite song of all time.
No other song has so successfully summarized my feelings of alienation reverberating from every road, street, and house I remember seeing. The disconnect I have from other people; the feelings of nostalgia that are really regret in disguise; the pain of having to let go of your old habits and habitats. This song is the pressure in my chest I feel when I think about the past, and everything I would do with the benefit of hindsight.
The interaction between the narrator and the waitress at the mid-point of the song is open for endless interpretations, too. Upon recent listens I've thought of the waitress as a metaphor for all the women in my life I've failed to meet the expectations of. The waitress is a stand-in for romantic relationships, and the image being drawn is one of an ex.
On the other hand, I wouldn't say it's a depressive song. Really, it's about growth. About facing the world as it is, and, not necessarily overcoming it but, learning to exist within it for your own purpose. Other people can be counted on to pursue their respective goals and move on with their lives, and you should be too.
One of my favorite Rush songs off one of my least favorite Rush albums. I just feel like this song captures the general malaise, uncertainty, and frustration, both internally and externally, at the current state of the world and the isolation (voluntary and involuntary) I feel every day, as I'm sure many others do. The idea that life is passing by and we really can't control it.
