See here for the original entry about Songs Stuck In My Head When I Wake Up.

I wasn’t joking when I said that this happens to me all the time. This morning I woke up with “You Can’t Say” by White Denim stuck in my head. This is admittedly one of my favorite songs, but I haven’t listened to it for a few weeks.

I’m really not surprised to find this track spinning on the record of my subconscious, though, seeing as there has been a silence between me and someone in my life that’s gone on a little too long–and I’m still not really sure why.

I’ve noticed you
Haven’t said much
I’ve noticed you
Haven’t got time

I don’t know
If I’ve done something wrong
Cuz you can’t say
You can’t say

If it’s your occupation
If it’s your family
Is it our situation?
Or darling is it me?

I don’t know
If I’ve done something wrong
Cuz you can’t say
You can’t say

This is has been happening to me for a long time now. I used to tweet about it, but I have decided that waking up almost every day of my life with one part of a song stuck in my head (that I sometimes haven’t heard for years) deserves a little bit more than a tweet.

I like to think that these songs are part of a soundtrack that played during a dream I had.

From now on I’m going to document them. I don’t think I’ll say much along with it, unless I can remember the corresponding dream, but I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

So, here’s the first-ever edition of Songs Stuck In My Head When I Wake Up, featuring Robyn, with “Stars-4-Ever.”

I can be right there next to you
No matter where in the world you are
I got you right here next to me
Forever connected through the stars

It’s what we are…

You and me together –
Stars forever

“Stars 4-Ever” – Robyn

(Oh little girl pick up the pieces)
Whoa you’ll come around
(Oh little girl pick up the pieces)
It all will turn around
(Oh little girl pick up the pieces)
You learn to live without me

I <3 Washed Out‘s new jam + lyric video for “Don’t Give Up.” YouTube user trentEA tells the world (via video comment) what this song does to a person:

For a minute you remembered your ex but then you was like forget iiiiit!!!!

Ya, basically.

“Don’t Give Up” also inspired me to put a lil collage of stuff together (after the jump) based on single lines from the lyrics. All these photos are from WeHeartIt – I fucking love that website, she’s a beaut. Here goes:

There’s been so many times I thought I had the best weekend of my life. Then, a few months later, a magical 2-day life fest happens, replacing my old best weekend ever with a brand new one. I can honestly say though, at the start of this month I truly had the best weekend of my life and can’t imagine anything ever taking its place. Until that happens, if ever, I am smiling because it happened, and refuse to let myself be sad that it’s over.

These are the moments we live for; kissing your dream guy in public, dancing to your favorite songs with no cares, walking around the same old spots with a brand new perspective. These moments, no matter how short, are sometimes only meant to be what they were and nothing else. Sometimes they are memories we look back on and laugh at while pushing a cart through a supermarket while everyone thinks you’re crazy. Sometimes they are left open-ended, but every time, they are the moments that make up the best scenes in the movies of our lives.

 

Whatever happens to you / Whatever happens to me / I hope that I’ll fall asleep / Knowing that you’ll always be /
The story with no ending.
