One Day Like This

..this song swept me up and carried me far away. Someone please tell me why this song feels so much like the reincarnation of my childhood?

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

  1. I adore elbow! I’d never heard this piece Larisa and I thank you for introducing me to it! The strings in are so lovely and add to that distinctive, nostalgic ambiance we’re experiencing on listening. The melodies sort of tap dance across the heart and the build around 1:50 is magical as hell β€œcause holy cow I love your eyes”. The second zenith is the addition of the guitar intricacy around 3:10. Just heavenly.

    1. I have no idea why I’ve not heard Elbow before last night. His raspy vocals 😍 I just kept listening to this song on repeat last night til I checked out, but I have a road trip today so I’ll have plenty of time to check out his other work.

      April, why are you so wicked sharp on like every topic πŸ˜­πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ»

      1. Ahhh Larisa you’re so sweet and I am very excited that we seem to both enjoy the same kind of music! Isn’t it the best when someone you adore and respect hears the same song as you and connects on the same level!! I’m not sure I’m sharp as much as our hearts and tuned to the same frequency β™₯️🎡

        1. Yes, you are most definitely sharp 😊 it comes across the airwaves, believe me. I love the fact that human beings can indeed tune into frequencies, that ish fascinates me. Raising our vibes and all that. I adore you too xoxo πŸ’ž

  2. You couldn’t do that sign-dance in the UKβ€” you definitely need a lack of wind for that! Impressive. It IS a nice and nostalgic song, even though I don’t particularly remember hearing it. I guess it sounds familiar, but it’s the sort of song that would feel nostalgic, for some reason πŸ˜„. It’s a rainy-day song, for me, like Nickelback β€” How You Remind Me. Or even more like Stereophonics β€” Handbags And Gladrags.

    1. You’re very welcome ☺️ I love when someone shares music with me that I end up loving! I’m sure my brothers can sling and spin signs like that, me though, I’d end up hitting myself in the face.
