Last year, my chosen song of the year that best described me was This Is Me by Paul & Pasek. It was such a big hit it actually became the most preferred personal theme song last year of almost everybody. It was about self-acceptance despite the private struggles and personal oddities that every one of us, in one way or another, possesses.
This year, I decided to have a personal theme song once again. I actually tried pressuring myself by listening to a bunch of emotional and poignant songs that would best describe myself and my vision this 2020.
It was actually quite easy to pick one from among the selection of poignant songs composed by Lauv or by Billie Eilish or by Troye Sivan. But none of them popped my bubble. I actually ended up choosing one song with no intent of actually choosing it. A song sang by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, it was a mere recommended video on my Youtube. And once I heard it, I knew it was the one.
I fell in love with the vagueness of the song. The song’s lyrics and dynamics actually needs quite a measure of wit and intellect to really absorb and understand its message. Thus, this song’s imprecision, its haziness and its abstractness is so me!
Last year I was so clear and on point about my humility and self-acceptance. This year, let me be a little odd with my value, be a little puzzling on being caring and a little baffling with my unselfishness because I want you to Fall On Me.
