Song 14: Lights – New Fears
Song: New Fears
Well, this is officially the first late post of this project… just after posting about wanting to avoid it longer, It’s a bit disappointing given that I listened to the song and actually wrote most of this post much earlier in the day. Anyways, no sense in dwelling on something I can’t change… I do enough of that already.
After listening to Belle Game’s song Only One on YouTube yesterday for my song of the day YouTube with its autoplay feature directed me to a live performance of Lights at George Stroumboulopoulos’ house. It reminded me of when I saw Stars play a couple songs there back in 2016. Anyways, the first song in Lights set for that show was the song featured below. As a highly successful Canadian musician, I’d have to be living under a rock to know to not know Lights. Fortunately, while I am of course familiar with some of her music there is still plenty of it out there left for me to discover since I haven’t ever taken the time to explore much of it beyond her major hits. I almost wish I had an excuse for not looking into her music more, but the truth is I have no real reason for never getting around to it given that I’ve liked pretty much everything (including this song) that I’ve heard. Enjoy it.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
