Music is the HIGH-light of my night

Music always better with friends, if you do not have friends around, there are always bud

SANDI KOBIESA, Editor-in-chief

I would consider myself a lover of all music (except country, but I don’t consider that real music), and I consider myself a lover of cannabis. Never did I think I would sit down and write an article about being high and listening to music. 

I went to POPO and got my favorite drink. I sat myself all cozy in bed after partaking in one of my relaxing “pastimes” and shuffled my “Liked Songs” on Spotify. 

I could try and tell you all my favorite songs, but I am unable to do so; there are too many categories to consider, so I will share my favorites from each category. 

Funniest song:

The song that made me laugh the most was “Rattlin’ Bog” by The Irish Descendants. I know all the words by heart and normally sing it on a long road trip to cheer myself up. I tried to sing the first few verses and was successful, but once I got further in the song, I couldn’t stop laughing at the words. 

I mean, why would there be so many things in this bog down in the valley? Either way, that song was a 10 out of 10 for me.

Emotional song:

Listening to “Japanese Denim” by Daniel Caesar made me cry a little bit. This song got me through many breakups, but for some reason, tonight, it brought the song to a new light. 

For those of you who have listened to Caesar, you all know his voice carries a deep emotion that you cannot ignore. 

Even though some of the words do not match up, they still make me question so many things: “you’re my four-leaf clover, I’m so in love, so in love,” make me realize that my cat is my four-leaf clover, and I’ll never forget the love between a mother and her (cat) son. 

This song is 100% the perfect emotional song to listen to (in my opinion), and I, 10 out of 10, recommend you listen to it. 

Best (upbeat) vibey song:

I love Lorde. Lorde. Lorde. Lorde. Name that reference! Anyhoo, I was thinking about my favorite TV show (“New Girl”) and was humming some of the songs they used. One of them is “Green Light” by Lorde. 

I grabbed my phone and scrolled through until I found the song in my list and queued it because I was curious. Once “Dancing Queen” by ABBA was done, this song came on, and I think I got up to dance and sing within the first 30 seconds. 

My heart was so happy to hear this song; it’s like the universe was whispering to me, “you are the sun.” 

Yeah, anyway, this song is worth listening to sober or under the influence. I’d say 15 out of 10. 

Best album:

Now, this album is my favorite when I am sober. I was not expecting to like it now, as it is a dark, near theatrical album, but it just painted an intense story in my head. I just sat in bed listening to this album and started doodling in my notebook.

When I got to the end of the album, I wanted to listen to it again. Shit, I forgot to mention the album: Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” Listen to the album; it’s my go-to for every situation. 

Best song of all time:

I cannot write an article about music without mentioning the best song ever written (I know Cole Quinn, our photo editor, would disagree with me, but he’s actually wrong). The song is, drum roll please, “The Trial” by Pink Floyd.

This song makes me think of little puppeteers wearing 1800s fancy clothes. Probably not what Pink Floyd wanted me to think, but that’s what my brain said was right. 

I beg of you, whatever you take away from this article, is that this is the best song of all time. There is no number on a scale that could describe this song. 

This was quite the experience for me, let me tell you. I truly enjoyed my time; thank you for the experience, universe.
