I Took a Pill in Ibiza

This song is filled with longing and melancholy, even the remix version. To be sad and have club-worthy bass are not mutually exclusive. In fact, the remix actually adds a second layer of longing, as if there is an electronic voice responding to yours, and aching equally. At the same time it has a rhythm conducive to dancing and partying. This pairing both excites and incites emotion, which makes it addictive. Perhaps the real irony lies in your own experience, those experiences generated by the popularity of the song, and the revitalization of your fame. If it were me, and I had “stepped off the roller coaster”, I think the success of this song would lure me right back onto that wild ride.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
