ARTIST: Indian Lakes
I usually feel guilty when I have lyrics I love from the same artist. Ones that I love enough that I’d make a post here. It’s strange because obviously it’s fair to have a beloved artist of whom you love numerous songs (what a crazy idea), and sidenote: Phantogram.
But I have this mini guilt because there are so many amazing artists saying poetic things that featuring any band twice is subpar. So my foundation is: no same band twice.. and yet I find myself wanting to feature different lyrics.. from the same damn song. Talk about against the rules.
For the record, I don’t go out searching for Overheard-qualifying tracks, but instead music is my means to navigate through day to day life. Not putting a negative connotation on anything.. it’s not ‘getting by’, it’s just listening to music, regularly, throughout say 10-12 hour work days. (I love work; don’t need any sympathy.)
And when I notice these amazing, profound lyrics, I just snag a screenshot, and label it “Overheard” at the front. When I’m ready to put the track to art, I look through my incredibly messy desktop for, you guessed it, “Overheard.” That being said, I don’t necessarily know what I liked about the song to garner the screenshot to begin with. So I listen to it. And I usually end up listening to it about 10x. It’s actually pretty amazing because I get to fall in love with these songs that I already fell in love with once. The relationship continues.
Back to featuring different lyrics from the same song.. some of these tunes.. you listen to them 10 times, and you are nearly complete with the post, (you found what you liked to begin with).. but then.. you find something else. Like, “No one explains to you where the things go that you love.” – Indian Lakes, “Runner”, and my personal preference, the Ansible Remix.
