All right stop, Collaborate and listen / Ice is back with a brand new invention
I was dreamily listening to one of my random playlists the other day, and it segued into an 90s mix that not only made me smile (hello Backstreet Boys) and made my heart a little bit sad (Spice Girls Viva Forever). After a few songs Vanilla Ice somehow crept in, and my over analytical mind picked up a possible subtext to his hip hop lyrics.
There is definitely another meaning altogether, but hey, this is a PG-13 blog.
Dance, go rush the speaker that booms
Got a favourite power tune? Turn it on, turn it up!
Ice is back with my brand new invention / Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Have a cuddle. Those endorphins will light up your neural pathways and relax your blood pressure. Patting a cat or dog or <insert cute critter> will also work really well.
Will it ever stop? Yo, I don’t know / Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
Light a candle, pop on music that makes your soul feel good and relax.
Quick to the point, to the point, no faking / Cooking MCs like a pound of bacon
Eat. UP that blood sugar.
Falling on the concrete real fast / Jumped in my car, slammed on the gas
Book a day trip, short break or for something slightly less extreme take a walk.
My town, that created all the bass sound / Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground
Go have a stomp. Break Sh*t. Oh no, wait, that’s Limp Bizkit.
What are your chill-out tactics?
