Music has a way of helping us to understand how we feel. There are also words that may often times offer a credible description. In my the next few posts I want to match these emotions very closely with music that is quite relatable.
Starting with Sonder, which according to the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness…
Simply put, realizing that you are not alone, everyone lives through their own ordeal.

Since we’re talking about music lol, I wanted to mention Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Life”… It’s def a smash hit but its been stirring up a lot on controversy bc of the language. Some have said its not literal, but others are saying it is.. I personally love the song.. It’s on all of my playlists and it turns me up everytime.
