“The world is changing. If you want to understand the youth, listen to the music. This is what’s happening right underneath your nose.” —NAS
We’re the kind of society that complains in the Summers about them being much too hot and us being way over them, and in the same year complain about our Winters—them being too cold for comfort, and us being way over them too. When we get too much love from someone, some of us complain about being way too smothered by them, yet, the moment we start to become ignored we are just as fast to complain about getting no love. We dramatize and exaggerate the things that happen in our lives because we enjoy animation; animation, makes things so much better.
We fall out of love sometimes as quickly as we fall in, but we rarely seem to remember that our hearts have much control over all of our minds, and with this sudden case of temporary amnesia we also seem to forget that the heart has a way of connecting the tiniest dots, and in doing so, it takes our minds to the places that could have been. Within these temporary travels through the various dimensions of the universe, we reflect on past loves; not so much because we miss the person, but because we want to indulge in a moment of pure bliss that we could use the energy from right now.
“Surging Memories“ by Du Tonc takes me back to a moment where everything in life was that way for me. A time in my life where every beautiful thing that I saw throughout the day took me back to a moment or time of pure bliss. Some days, those moments existed with one particular girl who was a prominent love in my life, and other times with another. This is how I began to become aware that it was never really the girl that provided these moments of pure bliss that I loved to reflect on—it was the scenario and small calculations around us that had to take place for those blissful milliseconds to occur that I was enchanted by. In that period of time I also realized that it was impossible for me, personally, to ever forget someone that I said, “I Love You” to. I realized that I just don’t love that way. I don’t love someone today and forget all about them tomorrow. In fact, I don’t think I could ever forget about any of my most passionate loves. I’ve also learned that this is quite normal behavior, and that the next person that loves you and that you fall madly in love with will love this crazy way about how you love the world.
Two worlds apart, I don’t want to leave the road that’s lead us here.”
Surging Memories is the song that will let you know that although living “in-the-moment” is a pretty awesome experience and way of life, that sometimes remembering past moments of awesomeness is that much needed dessert that the mind might need in order to make tomorrow, or the nanoseconds that are about to follow, just that much more awesome. It’s a summertime, “we are oh! so ready for you” tune that will make you feel good, help you remember what falling in love with the world all over again is like, and still allow you the space that you need to continue on your new path once the song has ended.
I get so high, I never want to come back down. —Du Tonc.”
