I’ve taken to listening to this song over and over whenever I start seriously thinking about pursuing a relationship. I know deep down that it represents the inevitable end to the relationship and the pain that I cause in the process.
No matter how down I’m feeling, this song always picks me up a bit.
I find the causal relationship between my emotional state and the music I listen to very interesting. I know that music can elicit emotion, however I find that my emotions tend to do drive my choice in music. Basically I’ve already determined how I “want” to feel and I’m choosing music that reinforces those emotions (usually negative). Why is it so hard to want to feel happy? Guilt? Regret? Ummm, yes and yes.
