Playlist by Renzo Defensor, Description and Cover Art by Antonio Castillo.
The sixth installation in a series of playlists by Echoes, the official publication of the UP Economics Society.
Every second, every moment, we could have done something differently. Some people think that everything aside from what’s real is an irrelevant alternative. This playlist explores the possibility of the other directions our lives can take, in the hopes of finding meaning in the lives we’re currently living. In a way, every song is a life. They teach us emotions, empathy, and philosophies in a controlled environment, like an alternate life. Like we’re in an experiment, and this is the control variable.
