I’ve been thinking recently about how we often explain our emotions and feelings through the fundamental elements of the world- fire, water, earth and air. Whether feeling grounded by the roots of home, light as air after off loading secrets, lost at sea when you’re out of your depth (double whammy), or aflame with desire.
Music and the elements also have a long and interesting relationship, so I thought it would be fun to start collecting tracks that evoke a sense of the elements.
Ever found a track that rages like fire? Or one that makes you wanna throw your arms wide and fly in the breeze? Then add it to the list.
Here’s a couple to get us in the mood:
Fire: This Chromatic’s track doesn’t evoke raging fire but rather a smoldering one; the kind of fire that burns deep within, like a flame of longing that totally and utterly consumes you.
Air: Sometimes when I am at work, and I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed, I put this on and instantly feel relieved. It makes me feel like I’m levitating far above my office, in the fluffy clouds, close to the warmth of the sun.
Water: This track takes me on a journey- from trickling rain, to a gushing river, and into the root of the source.
Earth: Etta James’ raw and earthy vocals, bring me back down to earth.
I'd love to hear yours, get sharing 😉 /I
