Soundtrack of my life

Ok I've been tagged by the lovely Metal Mummy for Soundtrack of my Life. Here's the rules

If you have an ipod, mp3 player, spotify playlist that you think says a lot about you I’d like you to join me in putting your playlist on shuffle and listing your first 5 tracks. You can add a note about why you have that particular track on your playlist if you’d like to. We all have a track or two we wouldn't like to admit to having on a playlist so no cheating by skipping a track!!

Ok the title was misleading. As well I thought I'd be looking to choose the music that is my soundtrack, not really random from a playlist.

I'm going to use my Spotify Starred tracks playlist. Tracks that I have clicked the star next to recently as I've been going through my music. Its a random mix of recent stuff and old so hopefully it will bring up some interesting tracks!

1. The Streets - Don't mug Yourself

I used to listen to the Streets a lot in my past. I'm not so keen on anything except their first album, which this track is from. There is nothing much to write about it really. I just like the song!

2. Eliza Doolittle - Skinny Genes


I love Eliza sooo much. Her voice is beautiful. Matt came across a track of hers whilst stumbling online and played it to me, and I was hooked. Her debut studio album is awesomeness. I hope to go see her live. This track is about her hooking up with someone and I love the way she sings i

3. Junior Murvin - Police & Thieves


One from my childhood. My dad used to listen to a lot of reggae and this is from an album he had. I remember lots of times as a teenager sitting in a smokey living room... with my dad whilst we had a record on the record player plus drinking tea and eating toast.

4. Britney Spears - 3


Just love this tune. I love a bit of Britney Spears. I'm a sucker for a pop tune.

5. Panic! at the Disco - But its Better if You Do


Oh so many memories. I first moved out of a family home in Jan 2006 I was 19. I moved in with my friend Leigh. She was more of a friend of a friend back then. I lived in a house with her and her bf to start with, then it changed to her an another girl mate, then Leigh and her brother. Eventually Matt moved in with me in that house too. It was a great time, a lot of ups and downs living in Wykeham Road. Aaaand we listened to a lot of Panic! at The Disco. I could write for hours about all the great things that happened under that roof, but I won't today! I'm glad this track came up as It made me smile and made me think of a time when things were a lot simpler. Going out drinking and having a good time 4+ times a week! Good time :0)
Me and Leigh are best friends now. She means the world to me. So it reminds me of her. It reminds me of getting together with Matt too as I lived there when we got together.

You have been tagged - means you have to have a go too! And I guess as Metal Mummy tagged 3 people I will tag 3 people and then you 3 have to do the same!
