A year ago on February 26th, I woke up and purchased The 1975’s sophomore album, “I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It.” I had a full day of classes but yet I was more than excited to hear what this album was going to sound like.
I have been collecting vinyls for about four years now! I bought these records from a few different stores and also received some as presents. I wanted to share with you about a third of my collection. When I go back to school I will make another post showing you the rest of my vinyls!
I sit here the morning after the election with one half of my heart full of anger, while the other half is filled with passion. I don’t want to get into who’s right and who’s wrong. That isn’t what my blog is about. Sharing things that help me, that will help you, is what I aim for. If there’s one thing that has opened my eyes to the views of our country, and even the world, is music. There’s one song in particular that stands out to me during this time; Loving Someone by The 1975. Yes, I talk about this band all the time, but this song has done something to me. It has helped me rethink how I view the news and social media. As a 20-year old college student, I’m aware and accepting of what is happening everyday in the world. I think it’s time for more people to become aware of the changes that need to be made and how our choices affect everyone around us. So this week I decided to do a breakdown of the lyrics! Here’s a link to the track – Loving Someone
