It’s been a busy few weeks with college and I haven’t had the time to trawl through soundcloud for any real gems. I have been thinking about music though and listening to a lot. One of the trains of thought is part of a larger life issue of feeling older and whatever. Taylor Swift had written “22” by my age and what have I done? I try not to get into that one because it’s tragic but I have been thinking about my teenage years. It’s almost a decade since I turned thirteen which is a trippy idea. That got me thinking about what was popular then, what I liked and in retrospect, having access to a much larger bank of music, what I think that I might have liked if I’d heard it.
With this in mind, I’ve started a Spotify playlist. It’s called “It’s 2005 and I’m feeling fine”. If you can travel back in time and decide that you want to win the heart of a thirteen year old me, this is the playlist to arm yourself with. It’s all very skinny jeans and all comes from 2005 or earlier, in general trying to stay this side of 2000.
So I’m going to keep adding to it and just gather the tracks that would make a younger me happy. I’d love to hear what anyone thinks of it or what tracks would make it onto your own early teenage mixtape.
UPDATE: That spotify list shooooooooooould load up. It just takes a few seconds coz Spotify is too busy sucking it’s own motherfucking dick. I hate Spotify right now
