It’s that time again where I release 4 songs that best describe this month. Those who are new to this I pick 4 songs from music released in the particular time, in this case February of this year. These 4 songs I feel capture the emotion of the month. I don’t look at which songs I like, or genre, or anything of the sort. It’s all about the music and capturing the mood.
Now that I got some of that out of the way, here’s what I picked for this month.
Rhye “Song for You”
Yeah, there are going to be some sappy, bittersweet love songs in here. February seems to be the month for heartbreak so I thought I’d roll with it.
Alele Diane “Yellow Gold”
This is another sappy love song, and admittedly I thought with the title it could tie into other events of the month. It doesn’t but, hey, sappy bittersweet love song for Valentine’s Day.
Pop Evil “Waking Lions”
In America students are marching and protesting for gun control after the umpteenth mass shooting. While gun control is a divisive issue no one can deny how these students, some of whom were running from gunfire just days before, gathered the strength to fight for their beliefs. If that’s not admirable I don’t know what is, and I feel this song captures their spirit.
Don Diablo “Echoes”
This is another one that I felt captured the indomitable spirit that humans possess. Whether it’s competing against the world in a sport of lifelong dedication or fighting to fix a broken system I think this song captures that feeling quite well.
