No idea how often I may update this. Feel free to comment or contribute. Don't just post an embedded video. Explain what you like a bit.

My song of the day is "Acid Ocean" by Project Pitchfork.

I liked the song musically, but it took me a while to notice what the lyrics were saying. I realized it was a grand nihilistic metaphor.

They speak of meaning as food, as though purpose and guiding principles were substance to "feed the soul." But as with food, it never lasts. It is all ephemeral. It can never be permanently sated.

The Acid Ocean, then, is a metaphorical stomach where every bit of meaning one consumes is broken down to nothing. All dissolves and turns to shit.

I chose this song because I am a fan of "Rock Opera" styled songs... The metaphor is cocaine fueled pretention, as are most later System of a Down lyrics, but its one of the rare ones not about the Armenian Genocide.

First song I posted on SIN back in 2013.  Great Song, with lyrics that add a contradictory counterpoint. Maybe by "we" she means the voices in her head?

In light of his recent death, I felt the Charles Manson soundbite song was only appropriate.

Because American music sucks now, and Russia is awesome.

One of my fave Italian folk songs used for trance drumming/dancing.
