17/ I Remember Only Observing Heartbreaks
For a variety of reasons of which I will not spin out here, I have never experienced the heartbreak of a painful breakup. I have only observed the heartbreaks of others’, a stance that is still painful for the other, but still admittedly detached.
I do not understand, therefore, why all of my favorites songs have historically been breakup songs.
The Local Natives are a outlandishly fun band from Silverlake in LA. I like them. I also really like this (“I want you baaack”) song of theirs’, “Airplanes,” and I welcome you to psychoanalyze such strange preferences in me.
