Once upon a September 12th 2019, I made a playlist titled “Acid Reflux” — with no context at all and this is coming from someone who has random alarms to remind himself to drink pomegranate juice at three pm. This compilation of tunes is, in a better way, neither weird nor random.
For today’s MFMF, follow me as we try to get into my head on what happened during September 12th. Investigative journalism as its finest.
George Clanton – Livin’ Loose
“This is a heartbreaking track. The love in between people is reduced to just “not hurting each other”; it can’t even bind them together and the singer is venting his fear. The beat is so hopeful. It’s like a kid walking on wet pavement right before they slip and fall.” — says the top YouTube comment.
I agree. Assuming that this playlist was put together in chronological order, it could have been when the heartburn (often associated with heartbreaks) started.
Foals – Exits (George Fitzgerald Remix)
An acid reflux occurs when the sphincter muscle at the lower end of your esophagus relaxes at the wrong time, allowing stomach acid to exit through your esophagus.
Yet another heartbreaking song in this playlist — could’ve perhaps been the chest pain.
S U R F I N G – Moonlight
Can you believe that this entire song is made up of only two sentences sung repeatedly? Just like how the acids in my stomach were moving around back and forth through my esophagus.
“Stepping out of the moonlight / Stepping out of the sun, with you tonight.”
Bicep – Opal (Four Tet Remix)
Okay now, where’s the darn Gaviscon?
