The Thrill of It

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to finally watch the movie Hall Pass. It was an okay movie, had it’s highs and lows. The one thing that stood out the most was this song they played during the club scene. It was such a catchy song and it really set the mood; I was wishing I could get up, go to a club, and get lost in the words of the song.

Of course I didn’t end up going to the club this weekend, but I did a YouTube search and found out the name of the song. The song is called “Walking on a Dream” and it’s by a group called Empire of the Sun. The electronic music duo is based out of Australia and the members are Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore. The video for the song shows the eclectic duo having fun in their own little world and enjoying the thrill of life.

It’s an amazing song and I must say its one of my favorite new tracks. The song is talking about the thrill of life and falling in love, that moment when two people become one. It has this awesome 80s electronic/pop sound and the lyrics are catchy in this scene kid sort of way. When I listen to this song, I feel as though I want to ride a bicycle along side the Potomac and get lost in my thoughts. It’s a lovely song!
