My top 10 most listened-to songs

Someone prompted me to do a list of the songs I listen the most to on my phone. I don’t use Spotify, so I’ve estimated which songs I listen to the most at the moment and added links to the songs on YouTube. It’s not a list of my favourite songs or the songs I think are the BEST OF ALL TIMES, but all of them are pretty sweet and well worth a listen.

Sia – Elastic Heart.
Grimes – Be a Body.
Ingrid Michaelson – Mosquito.
Ben Howard – Dancing in the dark.
Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata. Not exactly this version,  but close enough.
Black Moth Super Rainbow – Hairspray Heart.
Blue October – Hate Me.
Sigur Rós – Kveikur.
Nine Inch Nails – While I’m still Here (Oneohotrix Point Never Remix – the link is to the original because I can’t find a link to the remix)
Michael Giacchino/MI5 – Kremlin With Anticipation.

PS: How rude was it to cut off NIN at the Grammys? RUDE. But at least now, Reznor has something to be righteously whiny about.

Whatever floats your boat or finds your lost remote

I’m sitting on a coach to the airport again. Word of advice: don’t try to eat a burger and fries on a crowded bus unless you’re ok with looking like a slobbering mess.

Aside from the barely contained panic that accompanies flying and travelling long distances, I quite like travelling. The limited available entertainment makes it natural to just gaze out the window and let yourself get lost in some form of meditative philosophing state of mind.

Right now I’m listening to Beethoven’s Archduke trio, which I got curious of after reading Kafka on the shore, which in turn I got curious about after seeing an icon on a LiveJournal forum. Funny how these things works. One thing leads to another and you stumble upon something that you never thought you would like, but end up loving. It’s invaluable to keep an open mind and give things a chance.
