Todays Playlist

I have recently added quite a few new albums to my iPod. Firstly, just to make things clear, when I say 'new' I mean that they have never been on my iPod before, not that I am at the cutting edge of new music. Secondly, I don't think I have ever used the phrase 'cutting edge' when describing anything other than technology or knives, and if I am honest, I don't really like it in this context.... But, and this is a shame, my backspace button isn't working, so I will leave it there. That is also the reason that I am currently typing at 7 words per minute... I want to make sure.

OK, so these albums I have added are a mixture of albums I have recently bought, and ones that I stopped listening to before I got my iPod, so they have been gathering dust on my shelf for a few years.

And of the albums I have recently bought, some are old because I just didn't get round to buying them, some are old because they have only just been recommended to me, and some are old because I was waiting for them to drop in price because I am a stingy bastard.

What I am basically trying to get at here is that none of these albums could actually be classed as 'new', despite the fact that 'new' is the word I chose to describe them with in the first sentence. This, once again, comes down to my backspace button not working.

Through all of this rambling I have actually lost the will to live... I bore myself sometimes more than I think I have ever bored another actual human person. I am tempted to not actually finish this blog... Tempted to, after all of this bullshit preamble, never actually tell you lot what albums I have put on the old iPod.

And yes, for those that are wondering, it is an iPod touch.

But that would be altogether too easy... To hit 'publish post' now, or even better 'delete' would play into your hands, and I am far too much of a stubborn and annoying prick to do that.

Before I list the albums, please let me beg that you do not judge me... I have never once claimed to have a good taste in music.
  • Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way
  • Avril Lavigne - Let Go
  • Band Of Horses - Infinite Arms
  • Biffy Clyro - Only Revolutions
  • Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
  • Bombay Bycicle Club - Flaws
  • Christina Aguilera - Stripped
  • Eminem - Encore
  • Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight Live
  • Mumford & Sons - Sign No More
  • The Script - The Script
  • Travis - 12 Memories
  • Vampire Weekend - Contra

So there they are. I nearly started the list with a Dermot O'Leary style "And in no particular order......." but I realised they are blatantly in alphabetical order, starting at A, and working in an oderly fashion all the way through the alphabet down to V, where the list ends.

I would also like to note that I blatantly only did this post because I haven't updated the blog in 5 weeks. As I said earlier, I nearly gave up half way through, but I am bored in work, and the desire to avoid any form of productive activity was my main motivator.

So there it is... Some good albums, some shit albums, some medium albums, and one massive lie about my backspace button not working.
