My song of the week is Swimming Pool by Freezepop.
Swimming Pool is quite a long song (6:56), but it’s also an incredibly beautiful song. It’s synthesizer paradise that’s divided into two parts. The first part has a intro that’s (1:30ish) minutes long, which sets the tone that continues to swell throughout the verse until the second part – where the real magic happens. The second half is why I love this song, it’s striped down and simple until the kick comes in. A lovely juxtaposition of the first half.
The lyrics are charmingly sweet, just a song about jumping into a pool with your loved one and being in the moment.
Favorite Lyric: “Everything is perfect now.”
