Tape Tuesday: Lay Me Down

I always find it funny when people say, “Time goes fast when you’re having fun.” Well, no, time always goes the same speed–even when Destiny’s Child has a reunion during halftime of a Super Bowl (learned that the hard way). Time is one of the few constants in our lives. That’s probably why we despise it so much, and while it is always pushing forward, people don’t necessarily have to. I think it’s healthy to occasionally remove yourself from the equation and take a look back at the past. That’s what I think ‘Lay Me Down’ means (aside from being the title of Sam Smith’s legendary debut single). It’s directed at everything that’s constantly moving around us, saying let me go for one hour to listen to this mix and then another hour to listen to it again. Now, if that didn’t make sense to you, you can go suck a dick but download this mix first and hey maybe it’ll be a good soundtrack for your dick sucking.

Every night I ask myself, ‘Am I giving enough?’
