Team- Lorde

Lorde’s new single “Team” describes just that- being a team. Not necessarily in the traditional sports-oriented athletic way, but relying on friends and family when times get tough. Whenever you’re going through a hard time in life, it’s nice to be able to team up with the people you feel close to.

Unfortunately, not everyone has this support system in place. Some of us struggle to find people around us who we can confide in. When it comes to the big secrets in life, this lack of community can be devastating, especially when it comes to family. After all, if we can’t trust our families, who can we trust? Our friends? How can we be sure?

“And everyone’s competing for a love they won’t receiveā€¦and you know, we’re on each other’s team”

Kraftwerk- The Robots

This german band was one of the first electronic groups, and was featured in the movie “Master of the Flying Guillotine” (an awesome kung-fu film, if you haven’t seen it). I will say that if you don’t like modern techno/electro pop type music, you may not like this group. But, it’s definitely worth a listen. Even if it’s not your thing, it’s always a good idea to expose yourself to new artists and genres, especially one that pioneered an entire movement.
