Nostalgia

The term nostalgia describes a longing for the past, often in idealized form. The word is made up of two roots (νόστος nostos “returning home”, and άλγος algos “pain”), to refer to “the pain a sick person feels because he wishes to return to his native home, and fears never to see it again”. It was described as a medical condition, a form of melancholy, in the Early Modern period, and came to be an important topic in Romanticism. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Death in June

    Lol at Frank Ocean being one of the top artists. I thought something like Backstreet Boys or Aqua would be one of the top artists.

    It's funny, I've always gotten a nostalgic feeling from listening to not only primitive songs, but also futuristic ones.
