Tiestooooooo! This is an oldie but goodie. It’s one of the first trance songs I heard ever and one of the songs that made me fall in love with Tiesto. I think it *may* have even contributed to me going crazy for studying astronomy. Maybe. In a weird way. I hadn’t fully explored my synesthesia yet, so it still really influenced what I thought about the world. Which is odd. This song isn’t spacey. Much like the last post, it’s watery.
Ayla is a bit scary to listen to, in a sense, much life Clocks by Coldplay (I’ll have to do an entry on that as well sometime… maybe…). It’s scary in the sense that not only it strong as hell and in-my-face, but its like being in deep ocean, way underwater. It’s nothing but blue in all direction. Up top, a murky, lighter navy blue, down below, almost black dark blue. Just suspension in this world of blue hue, that doesn’t move too much.
It’s a little unnerving to hear a song where you’re so suspended in one place where you can’t see below you and above looks infinitely far away, but that’s Ayla. Also like the last post… sometimes if I get too caught up in it it’s a little harder to breathe just because it’s so fluid and ocean-like.
There are, of course, more blue, way more dark songs that I listen to. But it’s rare to have a song be so strong in more than a visual sense that it affects you like that.
