By Foy Vance. One of my new favorite songs for a couple of reasons.
1) It's so chill and soothing. I LOVE indie/alternative music. I also REALLY love movie soundtracks.
2) It's from one of my new favorite movies, "Warm Bodies."
In the scene with this song, R, a zombie, gets glimpses of a human's memories. Anyways, both happy and sad memories of his child-and adulthood flash across the scene while this song plays. Some of the memories include being bullied, watching fireworks with his dad, catching a smile from his girlfriend in class, telling her that he loves her for the first time and spending time looking at the clouds with her.
I feel like this scene paired with the song evokes a lot of emotion. (I know, I know, I'm analyzing a scene from a zombie love movie.) It makes you feel wonder at the life's small joys, like riding a bike or spending time with someone you love. It also makes you taste the bitter-sweetness of lows in life and moments taken for granted.
That's the thing about music. It can make you feel SO much in just 3-6 minutes. I feel like every song I hear--don't laugh--becomes my friend. When I hear it, it brings back all of the memories in that time of my life.
