I don't know from White Lies or anything, and doubtful I'll trip over them much outside of "to Lose My Love". I kept the song on because it had a decent rhythm section and I could keep pace to it. So I loaded it to a playlist.
Sad as it may seem, much of my music these days revolves not around the gym as much as it a subject of the gym - or outside the gym when it comes to running.
I've been much more liberal about what I add, even if it's not what I'd call a great song. It serves a greater purpose and hopefully, I find redeeming value in it - and if nothing else, for a few weeks or more, it's something new in which to listen.
As I craft different playlists for different runs, I'm just as quick to delete a song if it doesn't serve my purpose. Harsh for sure. It's not that I don't like a song, it's just not the correct setting.
As for "to Lose My Love" the theme struck me.
If you retain some of the crap I write over the last two decades (!), it has a recurring theme of death - and with 710, which one of us goes first and how we deal with that. I was anxiety ridden over that during the first 4-6 months of Covid - maybe until there was a vaccine. .....and you wonder why I'm on anti-depressants.
The opening line of the song addresses this: "to lose my life / or lose my love / that's the nightmare I've been dreaming of".
That really is it: one goes first. So either you die, or they do.
The chorus takes a less morbid view.......kind of. "let's grow old together / and die at the same time".
Honestly, that is the best case scenario.
The song has an '80's goth-ish vibe, but it works. I don't know I'd play it outside of a run, but you never know.
