my song: lorde's "glory and gore"

Right now, with the things going on in my life, this is my song. I listen to it over and over. In the car, in the house. I'm not a little bit obsessed with it because it makes me feel strong and energized. It makes me feel powerful and, right now, I really need that.

It's funny how significant it's become to me, particularly since I wouldn't have ever found it had Matt not bought Lorde's "Pure Heroine" album while we were in Wal-Mart one afternoon. We're both fans of her song "Royals," so it was a good fit for us and we occasionally still buy disks for groups we really like (like Mumford and Sons, for example). Now, I have to go listen to my song and get some writing done. Good night.


  1. I've always been fond of the song "Royals"...the lyrics remind me of my poor, yet happy, childhood. This was my first time listening to "Glory and Gore," and I loved it (which is rare for a first-listen). Definitely adding to my download list.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I really like "Royals" because it reminds me that it's okay not to be wealthy, as long as you're happy and living your life on your terms. I like that it points out the huge gap between music and the real world, in terms of real life vs. the fantasy music sometimes peddles.
