Ellie Goulding – Don’t Say A Word (Star Slinger Remix)

I’m sitting in my kitchen and my roommate is making crepes. She’s playing blues music off her computer and I’ve got headphones in listening to this. Am I the epitome of a technology addicted music blogger? I don’t know. I hope not. I’m really into the song though. The scene that’s happening in my kitchen is mildly hilarious because of how relaxed the outside world is and how my ears are living in a raging night club from the ’90s. Am I wrong to say that perhaps this song does take something from the ’90s? I think it’s mainly the beat, quick and skippy.

I intended to finish this post earlier in the day, but alas, my internet was down. Instead of sitting around the apartment waiting for it to come back again, I went on a bike ride to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and chilled with the cherry blossoms. We get really caught up in technology, myself included, and it’s nice to remember that there are much realer things going on in the world. That’s not to say that the Internet is not wonderful, because if it didn’t exist, how would you get your music from us? I’m saying that taking what you can get from the Internet is a beautiful thing, and then using it to fuel your outside world that interacts with everything else, is even better! Maybe I’m saying that you should take this song with you on your next adventure, let it inspire spontaneity.
