"The Mirage" - Heather Bond
“I remember when you were my everything; funny how you just became a memory.” When you recall the people that you used to know, do you still feel a connection to them? Even years later? ‘The Mirage’ by Heather Bond discusses a long-lost relationship with this kind of endearment. She even second-guesses her decision to leave in the first place. That begs the question: do you love them? Or the memory of them? That very relatable conversation is what this song is all about.
Bond has this angelic songbird energy that makes you feel like you’re walking on air. You can feel the groovy bass and guitar strums as they add a jazzy beat to the song. As she contemplates her past with this person, she keeps asking herself “did I get it right?” Just when you think she’s figured out the answer, she sweeps you off your feet with more vivid lyricism! Ultimately, you become enveloped in her marvelous mirage as you start to question your own memories. It’s a cinematic masterpiece!
