SOME PEOPLE ARE ALLERGIC TO THE ATMOSPHERE OF CHRISTMAS, SOME OTHERS LOVES IT, BUT IN ANY CASE YOU CAN CONSIDER THE HOLIDAY SEASON AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DEDICATE SOME MORE ATTENTION TO YOURSELF
Ruth “Polaroid-roman-photo ”
Françoise Hardy “Nous Tous”
Roisin Murphy “Pensiero stupendo”
John Lennon “Imagine”
Lou Doillon “I.C.U.”
Air “How Does It Make You Feel”
Florence + The Machine “Cosmic love”
Daft Punk “Instant Crush ft. Julian Casablancas”
Oh Land “3 Chances”
Leon Redbone & Zooey Deschanel “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
Often the importance of some free time and some quiet moments is underestimated. Devoting to ourselves a little rest and a bit of peace is refreshing and fortifies more than massages and beauty treatments.
Listening to a song with closed eyes in front of the fireplace or having the appropriate background music for a glass of wine with friends is a gift you give to yourself, as such it is priceless.
I.U.C. by Lou Doillon brings to mind the ethereal atmosphere of the summer, even if it’s snowing outside and the frost bites.
Listening to the energy of Ruth in Polaroid-roman photo, instead, is absolutely useful to prepare ourselves for the arrival of relatives, just a little time before the invasion.
Must and icons like Daft Punk should be listened in loop, all day long, if you are traveling for the holidays in the mountains or if you are cooking for friends.
However the words we should keep in mind are those written by the eternal John Lennon in Imagine.
Certain songs are able to complete an atmosphere and add something that makes the situation simply memorable. Finding the right musical background for each moment is a real art to which during the holidays you can dedicate some more time than usual.
