“30th Birthday” – Emily Anderson

“30th Birthday” by Emily Anderson sounds like such a sweet, indie-folk lullaby that has such melancholy context attached to the lyrics. Anderson writes about how difficult it can be celebrating new milestones without their loved one by their side, and how different things will look in the future without them. Anderson’s reminiscences are tinged with both nostalgia and sorrow, as she grapples with the weight of unfulfilled expectations and the enduring pain of loss. Throughout the song, Anderson juxtaposes celebration and longing for those who’ve passed on in such a beautiful way. “30th Birthday” reminds the audience how you can still honor those you loved who aren’t here with us anymore in a very touching and poignant way.
