Day 4 - A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget
Frank Ocean - Seigfried
During the last month or so of my previous relationship, I had Blonde on repeat constantly. It's a beautiful album, no doubt, but there was something about a few tracks off of it that truly spoke to me during that time. At this time, the relationship was surely doomed, and I knew it, but I was still very much in love, and I didn't want it to end. Thus, every time I listened to Blonde, there was one song I would always repeat over and over again. That song was Seigfried.
The first few times I listened to Blonde, I couldn't care less about Seigfried. To me, it was slow and boring, and there were no redeeming qualities to the track whatsoever. However, as things got rougher in my relationship, I felt myself gravitate more towards the slower tracks of the album, specifically White Ferrari and Seigfried. Suddenly one day, I started tearing up at the "I'd do anything for you part" at the end of the song. It was weird, as I rarely cry as a result of listening to a song, but I just felt like I could relate so fucking much. It was clear that my relationship was crumbling, but I would still do anything for this girl. So, as the time went on, I kept listening to this song. Over and over and over. Eventually, we did break up, and it became my go-to breakup song. I would say it's the main reason I coped with the breakup as well as I did.
Though Seigfried reminds me of an awful time in my life, I can't help but love it. Seigfried is my favorite song of all time, and I still listen to it pretty much daily, without ever getting tired of it. It's a very special and important song to me.
