QOTW: A song to send to the 10-yr-old you from the present day?

Hello there : )

 

Spotify asked a pretty cool question on Twitter - the one you see as the title - so I decided to bring it over here as well 😊.

 

So, what song would you send to your 10-year-old self from the present day?

That’s a tough question 🤔 I don’t remember my younger self being much into music at that age. I know my friends were big Backstreet Boys fans, but I was really more interested in video games, so I’d have probably enjoyed a sneak-peek of what games there’d be waiting for me in the future 🎮🐾

As for a song that I would want my 10-year-old me to listen to, it would be this one:

At 10 years old I was obsessed with pop punk and Green Day. I would send myself:

how will I rest in peace if I'm buried by a highway? //

Kenny Hoopla

To let myself know there will be awesome pop punk artists even when I'm an adult.

Great question, @Sebasty!

 

If I could send a song from the present day to my 10-year-old self, I might choose “Sernanders Krog” by Lowrider:

Lowrider’s Refractions is one of my favorite albums, and was released in 2020, which I think I’d consider to be close enough to 2022 to represent the present day for this scenario. “Sernanders Krog” is my favorite song from this relatively new album, with its awesome riffs and an epic guitar solo during the latter half of the track.

 

Though as a 10-year-old, listening to music wasn’t really an interest or hobby of mine yet, somehow I think I’d still enjoy Lowrider's stoner/desert rock sound, even at that time. The song might also inspire the 10-year-old me to explore this genre further, potentially becoming a fan earlier on of other stoner rock bands from the '90s (such as Kyuss, Fu Manchu, and Sleep) that I enjoy listening to these days as well.

 

Cheers!

I would send “When You Sing”. The song encourages everyone to use their own voice in this world, let your true light shine.
