I Took a Pill in Ibiza
Mike Posner

Until reading your post, I hadn’t heard the original. The mix caught my attention and was downloaded to my workout playlist upon first listen. While I realized the song was about a musician who wasn’t overly impressed with his life, the words were irrelevant to me. However, now that I’ve heard the original, I don’t just hear the words. I feel them. In my life, I can’t relate to “some musician” but I can connect to working hard for something and getting there…or close-ish to there and realizing that it wasn’t quite what I wanted. Thank you for sharing the story behind the hit. Both songs are great and will be used for different purposes in my life.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
