Having survived the Mayan Apocalypse, I thought a song about things to come might be suitable. “Future” is a song that doesn’t necessarily express this lyrically, but for me this song is a pensive, thought provoking tune. The repetitive chorus and beat are captivating and simple, leaving me wondering whether the song was 2 minutes long or 10. Time stops and I can let my thoughts take over. Songs like this make me love music; simple, brain emptying ecstasy. Sink deep into your mind with this song on repeat, and think about how great it is the world isn’t over. For now!
