#obsessed: Take Me Home (ft. Bebe Rexha) — Cash Cash

This is another throwback song, a Bebe Rexha EDM song that isn't with Martin Garrix. I don't know why it's been stuck in my head but according to Wikipedia, it was featured in TV spots for Finding Dory. I looked for clips on Youtube for a while, but only found brief snatches of it here and there. Needless to say, it is very catchy. Like many EDM songs ahead of their time, it's a shame it didn't get more popular than it was.

I've also been thinking about home as a concept and its uncomfortable connotations for me. I don't know if I have a place that I call home. My first thought is Berkeley, but my connection to Berkeley is fairly ephemeral in the grand scheme of things. My residence in my city of birth was so brief and so long ago that I barely have any memory of it. The suburb where I spent the majority of my life is such a source of torment that there is no way I could associate the concept of home to it without ruining the positive connotation behind the concept.

Maybe I haven't found my home yet. I have the whole world yet to explore. Rapunzel's tower where she grew up was not a home, but a prison. She spent her days wondering when her life would begin, and likewise, I'm wondering when my "real" life will begin. Some plants simply don't put down their roots until they've drifted for a while. Until then, I'll have to face the music. ◊
