Winter sucks. There’s no way of getting around it, so you might as well just bash your head on your desk and embrace your self-diagnosed seasonal affective disorder. Don’t be that person who tries to put on a happy face amongst the wind chill and icy sidewalks. Other people hate that cheery motherfucker.
Instead, you should take the advice of CocknBullKid‘s “Hold On To Your Misery”. A little cynicism will do you good. Because, before you know it, there will be that one day when everything stops sucking. The sun will shine. You won’t need seventeen layers of clothing to step outside. And you’ll suddenly be dancing with several miniature (not to mention, extremely adorable) versions of yourself.
Speaking of which, have you seen the music video for “Hold On To Your Misery”? It’s literally the cutest thing ever. Like, no matter how hard you try to hold onto your insecurities and neuroses, the jubilant choreography and cheetah-licious outfits will put a smile on your face. Or maybe it’s just the whimsical bounce of the song’s arrangement? It’s impossible to say.
Of the handful of “Misery” remixes floating around, Lissvik‘s first attempt is the only one to fully capture the carefree spirit of the original. While it’s nowhere near as good, this is all we have to work with until the single’s officially released over here on March 11… Wait, seriously? We can’t even buy this song if we wanted to? Now that‘s something to get depressed about.
