Musings, ideas, laughs, and a few beautiful people. I enjoy the rain, books, the piano, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Cabin Pressure, and Disney. I live to the tune of Elbow and electroswing.

I want a movie about a little girl, aged like 11-12, going through the stuggles of prepubescent girl life, with her entire inner monologue is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.
Shot of disgruntled adorable little girl.
SLJ: I knew that Susie was a backstabbin’ motherfucker, and if anyone was going to ruin my chances of being Miss Sugar Drop Queen, it was that asshole.
I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.
This is never not funny
Make Love is one of those tracks that is this perfect blend of organic and electric. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a song that sounds more organic and natural then this song - and it’s by an electronic duo.
It’s main melody consists of a deliciously rich piano, undoubtedly played by Thomas since he’s the piano oriented one where Guy is more guitar. And immediately you get this mental image of Thomas just kind of slowly playing a piano with this richness and grace that’s so undeniably Thomas. In the back, there’s the rich little plucking sounds that might be an electric guitar. (I’m not too sure on this, I’m not the best at guitars) But if it is, then that’s Guy with a guitar with Thomas keys away on a piano and it’s just this kind of lovely image. A calm and quiet little music session between two friends.
And then there’s the 808 drum beat which is set to mimic a heartbeat, and naturally your body’s chemistry wants to slow your own heartbeat down to match it. And it’s kind of a calming sensation. It’s not too loud and noticeable, it’s not like Kanye West’s 808’s and Heartbreak album where the thudding heartbeats are right there in your face. It’s a subtle thing. A breathing life.
And the vocals are Guy singing, like /singing/ singing. Only two words. The title of the song. But one word is unedited and the other has just the barest hint of a vocoder or digital distortion. A robotic voice that wants to sing so beautifully but there’s still that little bit of electric influence. And Guy’s voice is so beautiful and rich and smooth and it’s blended in so while, some people don’t even notice the vocals the first few times they listen to it.
Something I like to say and think about is that there’s songs that just kind of inherently are a part of you. Songs that match the way your brain and soul works and beats and exists, it’s hard to explain. Something that speaks to your soul. As if the wavelengths of your brain was written out, this is the song that the lines would make. It’s organic. The entire song ebbs and flows like waves on a beach. Growing more intense to a kind of a peak, then it draws back, patient, before building itself up again and calming once more. Make Love is kind of like my spirit song, or something. A sound that is so undeniably me.
I dunno. It’s funny, but I feel like this track is just exactly the way my mind lives and breathes.
