So whilst I’m stuck in Manchester working/studying I thought I’d add a post with a little recap from 2009 in terms of music. Usually at the end of each year you get playlists and lists in general of favourite albums and songs from the year which are all well and good. But I’ve done a slightly different playlist here. The criteria are that I either had to goto a gig and have the song played, or whilst on my travels this is a song that became ‘cult’ between a bunch of us for one reason or another. So yeah completely contrasting criteria there, but it is what it is.

Friday 18th December was quite a long day. First I had my final lecture for the year at University in the morning, and then I headed over to Manchester Airport to head off to Stockholm once that was done. Manchester had got me into the mood for Stockholm by greeting me with some snow that morning!
The flight managed to take off fine, and a short flight later I was in Amsterdam. I had to get a connecting flight from here to Stockholm, however the flight was running a little late, and in the end it was a good half hour late before we took off. In the end this flight went off with out any real trouble, other than for some reason making me feel really tired! Read the rest of this entry »
