The time has come....for another Absolute playlist.
Not sure if you guys have even had time to emotionally process the angsty one, but there is no time for anger anymore. YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE. It’s now...simp season. Kidding! Kind of.
I mean, let’s be real. What music are we listening to when the sun goes down and our emotions wake up? Rave music? If you’re me, then the answer is usually yes. However, lately, it doesn’t seem like that’s appropriate. Especially during spooky season. It may still be hot here in California, but it’s really cold when you don’t have someone to keep you warm at night :(. SIKE. Clearly, I don’t take simp season seriously around here, but a lot of musicians do.
The premise of this playlist is going to be a little different than usual, who doesn’t like it spiced up occasionally?
For me, when it’s after hours, I am on the HUNT for new music. My Spotify weekly Discover playlist is seriously lacking some weeks. The algorithm doesn’t know me by now, and we’ve been together for years. Thinking of breaking up with him...unliking the playlist...just so I don’t have to see it anymore. With that being said, I find tons of features that our artists do, that we may not necessarily see on their home page. Like for example, if I look up Blackbear, at face value I can’t see the other bajillion songs he’s been featured on in the recent months. Another algorithm scam. We do not stan.
That’s what I’m here for though, DO NOT WORRY. So, what is this playlist, can we listen to it during the day? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Kidding. I mean, what I’ve found so far will get you in your feels. I mean the beat is a bop, but the lyrics? Petty and could hit home for most.
So, what you’ll be seeing on this playlist, a lot of simp anthems, I mean I will only allow those kinds of vibes when the sun goes down. If I see anyone listening to it during the day, I’ll have to check in and see if you’re doing good. Don’t worry though, with life what goes down, must come up. That’s also going to be the case here, just when you think you’re stuck in your feelings...I’m going to throw a banger for you that makes you remember exactly the baddie you are. Yes, men can be baddies too.
In good fashion, I will be dropping this playlist ALONG with this blog post in the after hours. Aka, after sun down. AKA after 7pm...love this for us. It will be linked below for your simping pleasure.
And as always...til next timeeeeeeeeee!
ABSOLUTE AFTER HOURS:
