Robyn - "Eclipse"
Her specific style of dance pop has always been the music that gets me moving, and on this day of inverted things I think it's only right to bring out a song of her's that is often over looked as it's one of her down-tempo b-sides. Also, because some days you wake up and realize that you're really in the upside down and need to hold your breath.
Swedish Ice-Pixie Robyn first came to the music scene with her 1995 debut album Robyn Is Here which spawned two Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit singles; "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and "Show Me Love". Her second and third studio albums My Truth (1999) and Don't Stop the Music (2002) were only released in her native country. Robyn returned to international success with her fourth album Robyn (2005) which earned her critical acclaim and a Grammy Award nomination. The album spawned the hit singles; "Be Mine!" and the UK number one "With Every Heartbeat". In 2010 she released a trilogy consisting of three mini albums of the Body Talk series. The albums received widespread critical acclaim, three Grammy Award nominations and produced three top 10 hits; "Dancing On My Own", "Hang with Me" and "Indestructible". Robyn followed up with the release of two collab EPs; Do It Again (2014) and Love Is Free (2015).
So, today with two sides to every coin, I choose Robyn's "Eclipse" as my, with tender affection and an iron fist, with shadows on the brightest spots, with anger in the most loving hearts, song for a, let the change be accepted, different is good, now is the time for magic and creation Monday.
