There’s a new song (it’s not that new) that i am semi-obsessed with since I first heard it. I go into these crazy frenzies where I listen to the same song on repeat state from time to time. I had that with Fact-Fiction which I posted about earlier. Mostly I do it with the more emotional songs, rarely with (not sad) love songs. I’m sure almost everyone that’s not living under a rock has heard the song by now, it’s John Legend’s All of Me. In the event you have been living under one, I’ve included the video below.
It’s a beautiful song really. And before I heard this, the only love song that I made sure came up regularly on my playlist was Halo (by Beyonce, in case you didn’t know that). Funny things, I would have thought being chronically single, I couldn’t appreciate love songs. I mean I hate reading romance novels and do avoid the super romantic movies (e.g. The Notebook, P.S. I love you). Disclaimer: I do watch a fair bit of romantic comedies, that’s different category in my head. Back to my point, being single doesn’t seem to stop me from listening to love songs. Maybe it’s because most nice songs that come out are love songs and I don’t really have a choice. Maybe listening to them is a subconscious way to keep the hope that I won’t die alone alive. But on the other hand, there are times when listening to them seems to reinforce loneliness. Its like when they come up on my playlist its a way of the universe mocking my seemingly permanent single status. Basically as nice as some are, and though I do like listening to them, I am not sure how I feel about love songs.
