I’ve held the strong belief that certain chords on guitar carry a feeling (like Cadd9), a vibrating set of strings spring our minds to pick up a particular vibe,
our emotions churned by the same chimes over and again, burned into our memories, for better, worse, or all of those places in between.
Songs are the superstructure of these tones, several notes forming harmonies, patterns creating melodies,
as the unique energy they give flows into our mind’s eye, tagging up the walls of our memories.
A certain feeling is cultivated, after ‘that song’ is heard after about a thousand times,
be it a sad, somber thang, a high energy rage ballad, or something very monotone (like ‘Sex & Candy’ by Marcy Playground),
a unique quality – warm, fuzzy, and unmistakeable – calls to our souls by way of our ear drums.
Some songs feel like home, no matter what they sound like, and on its 10th repeat or more, that’s really all that matters. – RSM
