Find out the secrets of my musical taste HERE! (It’s no big deal)

50ish recent songs, mostly picked by my phone.

Just Like Heaven – The Cure

This will always make me think of Renee, who introduced it to me.

Tumbledown – The Jesus and Mary Chain
Empty puppet – Mary Bell

The second-best song of today’s ride.

This wasn’t on the ride. If it had been it probably would have won best song of the ride.

Also: Really good ride today. 30 miles and a better-than-normal average pace. All it needed to be perfect was for me to remember my water bottle.

Great list. I listened to Kim Gordon’s solo LP all day—mostly. Then The Scientist’s second LP. I listened to White Stripes—outtakes from the first LP. I put together and ikea shelf. Cleaned. Going to grade stuffs tomorrow. Going to check out what looks like a different version of Paper Planes from your list?
