The song It gets you down you travel far by Thom Yorke captures that feeling of floating, ethereal being. Its depth and drifting nature is reflected in the lyrics, which came about in an exchange with drummer Michael Stipe. Michael suggested that Thom Yorke pull the shutters.
It’s about being lost
There’s a saying “It’s about being lost you travel far.” It may sound a little silly, but it’s true. There’s a real woman who got lost on the Appalachian Trail and survived for 26 days, starving and exposed. She spent days improvising a ridiculous shelter and survived the ordeal. But, she didn’t have to stay that way.
It’s about floating
This song by Radiohead captures the ethereal nature of floating. Its lyrics originated from a conversation between Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe. Michael suggested that Thom pull the shutters. The resulting melody is a hypnotic F harmonic minor. The song is the perfect accompaniment to a meditative evening.
