Listen to My Life

Hey guys, I was on the tube and bored so I decided to go through my music library and create a playlist that loosely told my perspective on my life up to this point.

It was super nostalgic and satisfying and I think a lot of people might love it, both to do for themselves and to hear other people’s lives for a few hours. And find new music. Anyway, @fitmunk agreed so here we go.

Here’s my list of 52 songs that loosely (sometimes abstractly) tell my story so far. Listen if you want/can.
