Today’s Song Unlock: “Violet Night”
This song is a soundscape, the “Where The Wild Things Are” reaches of my imagination. Survival, magic. If we’re being honest, my dreams are a lot like this song. I know people don’t dream in color, but I remember most of my dreams in odd blue-green-turquoise jewel tones, and there is one setting in my dreams in particular my subconscious constantly takes me to. It’s a forested, swamp-like place, there’s this perfectly circular lake with a serpent swimming in it, always, and it glows oddly yellow-gold beneath him, backlighting him. This song takes place there. I go there nights after something odd has happened, and what goes on in that world is often tinged with darkness. Even though it’s beautiful I know it’s a nightmare coming at me, I’ll be put to the test in my jewel tone dreamscape. The sky is always purple, hence the title of the song.
