Love songs have many USES. They can act as a mirror to reflect how they feel about others. They can be used to remind you of your loneliness – to fill the void in your forgotten heart of desire. They can be a source of grief, reminding you of what you’ve lost in a broken relationship.
That’s why there are so many damn love songs. It’s a feeling we all feel, for better or for worse, that these voices can trigger something in our minds and connect us to a particular time, place, or person. These physical moments come and go, but the feeling is always there, and these songs are part of the human experience. This is the best love song of 2017.
Written for Luca Guadagnino’s film “give me your name”, Gideon’s vision is that only Sufjan Stevens can create and yearn for lyrics. The soprano he whispers is as delicate, intimate and familiar as his own bedroom. Stevens’ music often feels too personal and ephemeral, like an untouchable emotion. His music is a portable device that enhances his experience and provides the perfect emotional partner in the context of a movie. Even if you don’t know Gideon, you know him. Is this a person, a biblical allusion, or two? – just a feeling?
Charlotte Gainsbourg – “fatal valentine’s day”
When she released her “deadly valentine’s day” choreography, including Dev Orange’s blood Orange, Charlotte Gansberg told the song: “I wanted to express the idea of being part of a couple for life. The couple went from childhood to church and into old age. “It’s a song that works with French producer Sebastian and is endlessly pursued, whispered and dreamy in Gainsbourg. Songs, love, sports and life are all dangerous. Above all, gandalf promised to mate with mortals and sing: “from today on, better, worse, until death, we are apart.
Feverray – “about your IDK”
When Knife announced its dissolution after the victory shock, it seemed to be the conclusion of the very strange and exciting part of the electron music. Luckily, Karin Dreijer has returned to Fever Ray, a music project in 2017. There are many reasons for this. With “about your IDK,” Dreijer has mastered what sounds like a crazy hook. It’s a love-filled night of bumps, confusion and breathlessness that brings new meaning to the idea that you never really know someone unless you’ve had sex with them. This is a purely erotic song, and in our troubled times this idea is frustratingly threatened.
Girlpool – “it’s getting bluer.”
People do crazy things to get people to notice them. From a distance, you can show something embarrassing, such as “it’s getting bluer in girls,” and they might even pretend “global warming is just to get close to you.” There is, of course, more traditional devotion, such as reading and drinking. . For their sophomore album, the Los Angeles duo filled their voice with drummers, evoking the iconic ’90s indie rock feel. Music is much louder, much more invested, but it maintains a tight harmony, with a terrible sensitivity.
Calella – “front line”
Sometimes love means knowing when to end it. It requires not only courage, but also clarity of soul and emotion. Keira sings, “even if you wish I could/if you think I’m back, you’ll misunderstand it,” but can’t bring it back. “She was confident, calm and in control of her love life.” The R&B voice was worth her decision because the song ended when she got in the car and drove away.
Charli XCX – “boy”
Charli XCX “boy” and the song itself are hard to separate. The idea of leaving the boy forever means painting Riz Ahmed with a teddy bear or a Mac DeMarco licking a guitar. But video itself was good evidence of Charlie’s understanding of culture and culture. Somehow, she has turned platitudes into platitudes, fresh in the Internet age.
Taylor swift – New Year’s day
I know that Taylor swift’s music lurks with both the external and the produced drama, and it’s hard to use it as a true statement of human feelings.
