8 Tracks, reasons why, go!
Three Drives on a Vinyl - Greece 2000
It reminds me of being 13 and skipping school and cycling round my farm in the summer and walking in woods and fields barefoot. I was heavily in to trance music at this age and this was one of my anthems. I don't want to ever forget my childhood and this song brings it all back.
DJ Shadow - Stem/Long Stem
I heard this album when I was 15 and it was the album that got me in to music and art and life and gave me a quest for knowledge and culture that still hasn't stopped. When I got the cd in the post I put it on, sat on my sofa and was struck dumb for the whole length.
Arvo Part - Tabula Rasa
This peice and Trout Mask Replica were the albums that made me realise how wonderful and amazing things can be when you go outside the box. It's a weird thing for a 16 year old to here, but a worthwhile one.
LCD Soundsystem - All my Friends
Reminds me of my first girlfriend and being in love and all the good things about love.
John Martyn - Outside In
Reminds me of being in love when it goes bad but then you make up and it's all okay again.
Radiohead - How To Disappear Completely
Pretty much saved me. Was at the worst I'd ever been at this point and this kind of changed my life around and made me a better person.
Bjork - Cocoon
This is to remind me that lusting after someone is okay and doesn't make you a creep or a weirdo or a stalker boy.
Broadcast - Colour Me In
This song makes me very happy and it reminds me of the past 6 months of my life which have been the happiest times of my life and I have wonderful people around me and this song is about them.
