I love music that makes me feel something. A song should reach into your chest and break your ribs and grab hold of your heart and bury itself in your lungs. It should be able to stop you in your tracks and make you contemplate every decision you’ve ever made. The lyrics should creep up your neck and whisper in your ear and tell you secrets about yourself that you never even knew. When a melody sucks all the oxygen out of your body, thats how you know it’s worth listening to. Everything else is shit.
so my family plays this game where if someone is holding something and you yell “drop the bass” they have to drop what they’re holding so my mom was holding a carton of eggs so i yelled it and she looked me dead in the eye, dropped then eggs on the floor and whispered “you’ve gone too far”
