Aside from the grammatical nastiness in the category, I’m quite relieved to get to the last day of the 25 songs in 25 days challenge.
Not that it hasn’t been fun, but I do feel like it’s been a little pedestrian – I’ve had the odd day where I’ve been forced to think, but by and large the prompts just didn’t encourage me to look far beyond myself.
I love the music I’ve shared, don’t get me wrong, but just for one day I would have liked to have been asked something like:
A song you would suggest a sniper should listen to
A song that could possibly unfreeze Congress
A song that should be the only one that survives the human race
A song you listened to while painting your nails with your BFFs
Ah well, it’s the last day, so let’s go out on a doozy.
A song I could listen to all day – that isn’t one of mine and I haven’t shared already.
I haven’t shared any Godspeed You! Black Emperor yet and, as my original connection to this challenge came from Goldfish, it’s only apt that I amplify her 25th day song, because it’s mine as well – I am going to go one further and share two pieces, but as they flow together, I’ll count it as one.
I could listen to GYBE’s Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada all day, all night, all week, all year – quite happily. It has two movements, Moya and Blaise Bailey Finnegan III.
As I always say when recommending GYBE – take the time to drop into this ocean fully – you will find it dark and beautiful.
