Usually, around this time of year, I find myself listening to a variety of music to get into the right “mood” of the season. Sometimes, depending on my health and general temperament, I’ll listen to a few songs over and over again until the whole house gets sick of them. And then I keep listening.
I’m honestly surprised I haven’t been called out on it yet!
Here’s my current list of earworms, or songs-that-I-can’t-stop-listening-to-for-whatever-reason.
Pete, it’s still been too soon. This song just envelopes me into a velvety cocoon whenever I listen to it, and Pete’s voice is to thank for a large portion of that feeling. RIP.
It’s not strictly goth, per se, but then again, I never said that I listened to just goth music either (which is a topic for another day). It helps that I’ve been watching the new season of Twin Peaks, and I’ve been as surprised, scared, and pleased (more or less…) as most fans. It helps that Apop Berzerk makes some great music to begin with, but this homage to Twin Peaks – and this pretty cool fan video – push it right into earworm territory for me.
I’ve got no rhyme or reason for this one. The weather is getting cooler, and damned if I don’t love some Tallest Man on Earth. I first heard of him through this song, actually; Adult Swim had one of their free music summers, and I believe that this song was the last single available. It introduced me to this cool artist and I’ve been really digging him. If you like this, give his album The Wild Hunt a try, too.
I’ll eventually have a post about season specific songs at some point, so keep an eye out for that. But tell me: what’s rattling around in your head? Any good songs sticking around?
