Ahhh here goes (said in Keenan and Kel style………..):

The glorious playlist that you are currently listening to represents, quite simply, all my pasts and futures.

I was trying to think of a really smart, over arching statement to adequetly sum up my general thought direction, but then my noodles had finished boiling, so everything else in the world suddenly didnt matter. Anyway, half the songs on here have been with me through thick and thin, and have moulded my life in bizzare, yet beautiful ways. The other half are tunes that have hit me between the eyes in recent times, and are screaming to be heard and adored. If you’re really that interested, the tracks that have acted as my parachutes through the years include, ‘One More Time’ by Daft Punk, which incidentally is my favourite ever song for the soul purpose that always seems to playing when i’m at my most happiest, and makes me smile out loud! Also, ‘Like Spinning Plates’ by Radiohead, as makes me feel like I’m completly relaxed upon a mesh of lasers, and calms the storms in my head, seriously. And ‘Being A Girl’ by Mansun, simply because anything that this band have ever done pretty much sums up what my mind looks and sounds like; every glitchy, sparkly, muddled bit of it.

So there you go. No fancy bullshit. This playlist is my life as it has been, is, and will be, i hope! Nuff said!
