#obsessed: Selene – Imagine Dragons

I haven't been posting for a while because so much stuff has been going on; I actually had a lot of heavy, depressing stuff lined up, but I'll do an update post soon instead. In the meantime, I've been quite obsessed with this song for the last few days. I found it through mobile Spotify, which was obnoxiously suggesting songs (you don't know what I like, you don't know my life!) and even worse, not playing a single one of the songs on my playlist. I was trying to sleep at the time, and I had a very specific playlist set up that helped me fall asleep, so it was extremely frustrating to not be able to access it. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app twice, but nothing worked. I ended up awake until 2:30am. I was so frustrated, I probably could have thrown my phone at the wall, except for the fact that it was an old Android and would have left a dent in the wall and ended up with not a scratch, so I didn't. I did, however, retake my old iPod touch that my parents arbitrarily confiscated years ago, in revenge, because the "smartphone" that I have currently is more useless than a brick. However, through the Spotify song suggestions, this one kept popping up and stuck in my head when I was in a more awake mood. I ended up going through the entire Night Visions album by Imagine Dragons and finding that some of the less mainstream songs were quite happy and catchy. I actually downloaded the entire extended edition onto the iPod, as well as some other songs, and the whole ordeal has ended quite satisfyingly. I still like this one the best and I've been listening to it on repeat; it has an American Authors meets Lorde kind of vibe, and it's the type of song that I would listen to first thing in the morning. Enjoy!
