We are nocturnal creatures. We love the night. Who doesn’t like to see half of the truth? Shadows are part of us too. That’s why we made this playlist with the best late night vibes. Here’s our own original soundtrack for all the mixed feelings that you get at 2 AM while you should be sleeping, but you’re thinking about someone or maybe just embracing all sides of life.
We’re also open to new songs for this playlist, you can always use our submit form.
Slow Dancing In The Dark- Joji
Joji uses the metaphor of a slow dance in the dark, to talk about a failing relationship where you have intimate contact with each other but in reality, it feels impersonal.
“The song is someone kind of crooning, like calling out, to someone else being like, “Don’t waste my time, be with me.” Which, I’m sure a lot of people feel. You know what I mean? Don’t be lukewarm”
When I’m around slow dancing in the dark
Don’t follow me, you’ll end up in my arms
You have made up your mind
I don’t need no more signs
Only In My Dreams- The Marias
The singer is tormented by demons and nightmares every day but she has someone to hold on to, to protect her.
With demons in my hair
That talk to me
It’s only just a dream
Baby stay here
Neon Lights – DOPE LEMON
If I had to choose lyrics to describe youth and a fun night, they would be Neon Lights.
Let’s roll around
‘Till our feet don’t touch the ground
Have a drink now
‘Till I drift away with the stars
Billie shares with us her vulnerability in this beautiful ballad about the irresponsible use of drugs. Billie also stated that the song’s message was “less ‘don’t do drugs’, (and) more ‘be safe’.
Still just drinking canned Coke
I don’t need a Xanny to feel better
On designated drives home
Only one who’s not stoned
Don’t give me a Xanny, now or ever
Daddy Issues- The Neighbourhood
Although the song refers to the father’s singer, in reality, the song treats the problem of growing up without a father’s figure, specially for young women.
You ask me what I’m thinking about
I tell you that I’m thinking about
Whatever you’re thinking about
Tell me something that I’ll forget
One of the best things of this song is that the relaxing and ethereal soundscape fits perfectly with its cryptic lyrics. Make your own interpretations.
You light a cigarette, then look at me
Like I was some kind of friend
Someday, I’ll confess
Yes, I’m Changing- Tame Impala
“…A weird experience, because it was like it was someone else who made the song. I had no memory of imagining it”
Yes, I’m changing, yes, I’m gone
Yes, I’m older, yes, I’m moving on
And if you don’t think it’s a crime, you can come along with me
Life is moving, can’t you see
Motion Sickness-Phoebe Bridgers
Phoebe talks about loving someone that is also hurting you deeply. These are the bittersweet counterparts of love.
I hate you for what you did
And I miss you like a little kid
I faked it every time, but that’s alright
I can hardly feel anything, I hardly feel anything at all
Harsh lyrics about how he’d rather sleep as a form of escapism than keep dealing with the feelings of unrequited love.
I won’t crash your car (what?) if you don’t crash mine
And I only feel better half of the time
When I am sleepin’ and I’m dreamin’ in my bed
And I don’t know if I’m awake or I’m dead
