I missed my new music Friday post yesterday just because I didn’t feel like writing anything yesterday. The world has conspired to make sure I post something music related this week though. I have adored the song “Remind Me” by Emily King since the first time I heard it last fall, but for whatever reason I never wrote about it here. Then Emily King kept showing up in my life this week. She was on yesterday’s episode of World Cafe, and then today I started listening to this week’s episode of the podcast Switched on Pop and it turns out it was a live episode with none other than Emily King talking about her song “Remind Me”. It felt like a sign that I should finally write about this song.
It’s a lovely little song about someone reawakening love in you after not experiencing it for so long. I love the groove that the song has. They talk in the Switched on Pop episode about things in the song that do things that you as a listener don’t expect like the down chorus and pieces of the chorus popping in at a slight syncopation so that it’s not on the same exact beat as the previous verse which provides a nice little aural surprise. It’s a very satisfying song to listen to.
