I had a day.
A misanthropic, railing, I hate the world and everything in it, type of day.
Everywhere I looked I saw something that annoyed me, from stupid movies to bad music to inane cultural trends — everything awful about humanity.
I’m a terrible snob, darlings, I accept this. Perhaps you see me railing and think — but Helena — what is your point of reference for excellence? Please share your exquisite taste with us, because we’ve got Lana Del Ray and Pharrell on repeat and it just won’t stop.
I’m so glad you asked, darlings. I’m going to take a moment and share with you just a few of the prettiest songs I know, some of which you should know or at least be familiar with the artists in question, others of which you may be hearing for the first time. These are just off the top of my head — if given the chance, I could unfold an entire afternoon worth of music for your enjoyment, but alas, DJ Darling Dilettante only wants to give you a taste.
