I’ve found myself meandering back to this old mixtape, and listening a lot to this song by Alphaville. I really don’t know much about the group, beyond just this one song that got included on the tape.
Even now, the key changes in this song are (to me) incredibly complex. There’s a great deal of satisfaction hearing the shifts, up and down, and I wish I had better words to describe what’s happening with the notes in the song.
Turning to old songs and reaching for nostalgia – this seems like a byproduct of the times, where we keep reaching for the familiar and known.
