    I'm at work atm but this song is important to me and has to be first because I literally felt like hearing this on the radio driving from class one day was when I understood the applications of philosophy and esp aesthetics and music history coalesced together together

    More 2 come bc phones are lame for longtext and I cant listen to do a comprehensive assessment but u kno

    This Song

    (Full disclosure: I don't even particularly like the song on its own, but that doesn't mean it can't be hugely significant)

    Safe And Sound

    Starts off like a party anthem doesn't it? Upbeat drums and that (synth?) in easy steps. But then those TRUMPETS! I can't hear those trumpets without imagining biblical prophecy, to be honest. Very glory and triumph, very bright in their brassiness, very heralding. You know what that also often goes with? The End. The fall of Jericho, the coming of the revelation... Especially coupled with repeated mantras of "we'll be safe and sound" it sounds less like an exultation and more like a prayer. IF WE JUST KEEP REPEATING IT IT'LL BE TRUE RIGHT. Also can we just with the way the words fall out after "six feet under ground I know that we'll be safe and sound" and it's just suddenly much dancier trumpets in the absence of the human voices.

    This song for me is about looking to the future, not liking what you think is coming, and facing it anyway (together, honestly, whether with someone you love or as a community, and I personally prefer the community approach). Consider even if we're six feet under ground and even if the sky is falling down. It's the end of the world as we know it, and we don't feel fine, but we'll survive. We are not safe and sound, but we will be.

    It came out in 2011, what was supposed to be my final year of college, and I was facing a very uncertain, anxiety and depression-riddled life crisis. And then I heard this, and I didn't feel alone in facing the world, even if it felt bleak. That things could BE bleak and still hopeful, that I could acknowledge shit's gone bad and probably going to get worse, but you still have to hold on. Now to be clear, Id idn't have an *imminent* sense of things gone south (outside of flunking out of uni) but a sense that something was on the horizon in the next few years. That the world was going to have a shift.

    I think about this song a lot in the past year, after several years of quasi forgetting it existed when it stopped playing on the radio. But when I hear certain news stories, and see some of the long arguments on social media about rights and events... Safe And Sound comes to mind.

    That sounded so vaguely like I knew what I was talking about in an almost intellectual way but just wait till I do some of my favourite dubstep songs and I'm just screaming about basslines for five hundred paragraphs
