My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

8. Day 7 - Cycling Trivialities

 

Cycling Trivialities by José González:

Too blind to know your best
Hurrying through the forks without regrets
Different now, every step feels like a mile
All the lights seem to flash and pass you by

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

But don't know which way to turn
Every trifle becoming big concerns
All this time you were chasing dreams
Without knowing what you wanted them to mean

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Who cares in a hundred years from now
All your small steps, all your shitty clouds
Who cares in a hundred years from now
Who'll remember all the players
Who'll remember all the clowns

So how's it gonna be
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities
So what does this really mean
When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities
Cycling trivialities

 

Well, some of you may already know that I love this song as it is linked into my movella 'Glass Girl' but I thought I'd put it on here as well to try to spread the love for it as far and wide as possible. It is such a beautifully written and performed song but also kind of depressing... As far as I interpret it, this song is about our petty lives; endlessly repeating ourselves and our history. We are all tiny trivialities and everything that is big or important is just another miniature concern or celebration which will not be remembered in time to come.

It is taken from José's 2007 album 'In Our Nature' which is well worth a listen.

Hope you enjoy, let me know your thoughts!
