Sunshine remix is right, the second this track drops you can’t help but think sandy beaches, topless cars and good times. Jamaica absolutely crushed this version of Ryskee’s Horrors of Love.
I’m not sure I can agree with them on the song topic though. Everyones been in a rough relationship once or twice and some of people get it worse than others. For many, emotions become jaded to the point they think there might inately be horror in love. Even worse, some may even come to expect and romanticize and celebrate these mistaken virtues. What ends up happening is that you get one person either subconsciously or consciously expecting, hoping for or even provoking the worse. That’s commonly referred to as putting up a wall. That’s fine but the second you do that with someone who has nothing to do with your unfortunate past, that’s the second you bring dishonesty and manipulation into the picture.
The past exist to learn from but you’re not supposed to live in it. Living in the past is perhaps one of the most dangerous mistakes anyone could make for a plethora of reasons. One being that you end up constantly reliving something that no longer exist. Two because you bring it to the present and therefor never end up growing. Lastly, because you end up having preconceived notions about people that lead to generalized approaches. People and events require flexibility because no one is the same. If you’re this rigid rock that won’t adept because you’re scared of what’s to happen if you open your mind you’re just making it hard for yourself.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee
There’s a fine line between not making the same mistakes again and preventing the endless possibilities of life from happening because you’re living in fear. That said, there’s no such thing as horror in love but by associating bad experiences with potentially beautiful new ones you might accidentally bring horror to love, enjoy.
