This song by Phosphorescent is featured on their Dead Oceans Album and is on the soundtrack of The Spectacular Now coming of age movie from 2013. It got a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes website and is considered to be a thoughtful and poignant representation of teen angst. I, however, have not seen it. I am just enthralled with the song, it calms my being and allows me to delve deep into my own emotions and heartbreaks and come out on the other side. I play it whenever I am feeling down because it gives me hope. It is painful and beautiful all in one!
It is also on the soundtrack for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from 2014. Again, another movie I have not seen!
I believe music can help change your life. Both my husband and I have a list of songs we want played at our funerals that meant something to us as a couple and independently. This may seem a little macabre to some but we feel it will help our friends remember the good times shared and not the sadness in our passing.
The message here – enjoy life, it’s the only one you’ll have!
