"Here it Comes" by Doves

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I’m not sure when I first heard this song, but I listened to it all the time senior year of college. It is my most-played song on iTunes (213 times). I remember thinking it was the most romantic sounding song I’ve ever heard. If you listen to it really loudly with headphones on or if you lay your speakers and your body on the floor, it feels like the music is hugging you.

I used to tell people that when I did my thesis for my design major that I would make a black and white video of two people having sex to this song. Basically, I wanted to make a porno, set it to this, and hand it in to my hoity toity professors and ask to graduate. I wound up making a photo book about people in masks who suffer from debilitating emotional issues, and the process kind of changed my life so I’m glad that porno didn’t work out, but damn.
