I guess we have no choice but to connect music with our immediate surroundings sometimes and, of course, the things that are happening in our lives at those very moments. I guess this is why some songs resonate more profoundly within our hearts than others. I’m also guessing that this is why some songs resonate more vibrantly with our feet and other dancing components than with our hearts, too.
Watching a certain movie last night I came to realize more of what I already knew. Now, I know that this will probably sound creepy and a little crazy, but my realization is that most of America is full of narcissistic sociopaths all searching for the most idealistic love stories. Pay close attention because I said: love stories, and not just love.
We meet someone at a party, instantly fall in love with them, and end up in a sexual relationship before even fully knowing this person. We are all guilty of this, but it’s part of our culture nowadays. I mean, how many people have been married to psychopaths only to realize it decades down the line because they never really paid attention to the tiny clues, or they never really got to know who they were fucking? It’s a constant cycle that we see more and more of. Well, the problems aren’t the sociopaths. No. The problems are us: the 11 year-old versions of us looking for Prince Charming and Barbie in every person we meet.
Tunnel Vision is defined as defective sight in which objects cannot be properly seen if not close to the center of the field of view. We suffer from tunnel vision in the loves that we make simply because we are searching for the things that we selfishly want to see in these people rather than finding out who they are and accepting them. Why? Because maybe who they are may not be to our standards, and so we open the doors for these sociopaths to come in and do what they do best—lie.
Max Joni & Danielle Martino‘s Remix of Rhye‘s “Open” is their version of what they believe the dance world wants to hear, and they nailed it. Maybe it is a sociopathic version of what the original really is, or maybe it’s the best version of what the original could be. We won’t know because all we care about is what the 11 year-old version of us want, and once this tune comes on blaring through your speakers, it is exactly what those versions of us will want.
I’m not here to teach you about life. I am here to open up your eyes to the things inside of you that you have not yet learned to accept, good or bad. At what point do we take accountability for the sociopaths we have dated, continue to date, continue the cycle of dating, or find ourselves currently with? At what point do we realize that there is something wrong in ourselves that we need to change in order to attract the energies that we truly need rather than those we desire? Like this seductive remix does when it becomes music that tells us what to feel and where to go to feel it rather than the same old dark places we only find ourselves brooding in and suffering with.
I’m a fool for that shake in your thighs
I’m a fool for that sound in your sighs
I’m a fool for your belly
I’m a fool for you love”
