And so it finally begins.
As one of my 2016 resolutions that I made on this blog, I said that I’d begin sharing a little bit of my musical world in the way of a monthly playlist and without further a do, here is my first.
Previously to this, music has always been quite a personal thing for me, I’ve always used it as a comforter – something that could make me feel better at any point in the day. If I’d had a bad meeting, then it’d be straight to something angsty like Against Me! or if I’m having a summery kind of day, then it’d be something like Elbow to really make the most of it. In fact, once I skipped all the way to uni listening to ‘One Day Like This’. Best. Day. Ever. It’s fair to say that a playlist can make or break my day.
This month, I’ve been going back to basics. A guy at work has re-ignited my love of all things 90’s and 00’s, as he’s been making his own Spotify playlist and I’ve been following along. I think that’s what’s nice about music, it can bring people together, whether you like the same bands or not. If you have a similar taste, then all the better!
