Music is a total constant. That’s why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? A song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in you or in the world, that one song stays the same, just like that moment.
At the end of every month, one of my favourite bloggers posts a list of the top 10 most played songs from her iTunes library over that month. It’s a way for her to keep a record of and share the soundtrack to which she is living her life. I love the idea so much, that I decided to be a little copy cat. A hat tip goes to the lovely author of Life Is Ducky for this one.
Here’s what I was listening to most in November:
- Slow Show, The National
- Heart Skipped A Beat, The xx
- Radioactive, Kings Of Leon
- Dog Days Are Over, Florence and the Machine
- Bloodbuzz Ohio, The National
- Dead Hearts, Stars
- Dance Anthem of the 80′s, Regina Spektor
- The Suburbs, Arcade Fire
- Meet Me In The Morning, Bob Dylan
- Folding Chair, Regina Spektor
Something tells me the list for next month may be very different. (If my current state of early holiday cheer is any indication…it could be all Christmas music, all the time for December!)
