Music's a funny thing. As little as a few notes in sequence can remind you of another time and place. So I thought I'd share the songs that I've been playing over and over this year. Whenever I hear them, they'll always remind me of some immortalised moment. Memories such as...
The Memory: Copying Bruno Mars' dance moves with my roomie, Michelle. From the comfort of our couch we shimmied the night away and harmonised to this song as well as his back catalogue.
The Song: Uptown Funk, Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars
The Memory: Near-yelling the lyrics and getting more than a little teary. I was operating on about 4 hours of sleep, was a ball of stress, and getting buried alive an ever-increasing pile of college assignments. Wallowing in self-pity, this song was the only thing keeping me sane.
The Song: Like I Can, Sam Smith
The Memory: Jogging along the boardwalk of Ocean City, beside the sea and under a newly-risen sun. Pure bliss.
The Song: Liberate, Eric Prydz
The Memory: Going back and forth, behind the camera and in front of it, taking selfies for my blog. Also, writing up many a blog post. I don't know why but I binged on this song while I blogged this year.
The Song Emily, Lower than Atlantis
The Memory: Spending hour after hour editing photos for my final photography project of my degree. My second home was the Photography Mac Labs and with my headphones on I was in my own world.
The Song: I Wanna Feel, Secondcity
The Memory: Another early morning, on the bus, heading to uni to get stuff done. Public transport's not that bad when your headphones are plugged in.
The Song: Easy, Porter Robinson
Also, can we take a moment to appreciate how cute these headphones are?! They look like earmuffs, they are cosy like earmuffs... Okay they are earmuffs... But they are also headphones! They're from Paperchase and they are utterly adorable! Thanks to my lovely grandma for giving them to me for Christmas!
