Priorities – OHDDecember 25, 2015
“Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.” OHD opens their track, “Priorities,” with this lovely quote from Alan Watts. As the intro finishes, horns take the fore and lead a relaxed, jazzy track with a simple hip hop drum beat. The piano gets its time in the spotlight before returning to the repetition of the core of the song. This song is entirely instrumental apart from the voice of Alan Watts, and it works. It’s a wonderfully relaxed song that is easy to sink into and enjoy.
After considerable searching, I’ve concluded that OHD no longer exists. I found YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and SoundCloud accounts all with similar 404 messages of no longer being active. I feel like if they had decided to change names, they wouldn’t have simply deactivated their accounts. As it is, I’m using a version of the song rehosted by Holy Chill, where you can find lots of other excellent chill music.
