Sometimes it’s hard to know whether you should flick the TV on, stick some music on or simply sit there in plain silence. For me, I often dither between three depending on the mood I’m in. More often than not, the TV proves to be a distraction, surprise surprise. But then sitting in silence isn’t an option either. I personally hate silence and cannot stand being in my wee little flat on my own! So that only leaves option number 3.
Now I often pride myself on actually knowing a thing or two about music. My favourite band is Matchbox Twenty, I love a bit of Elvis, know all the words to Michael Jackson and am not shy to a bit of Def Leopard, but as shameful as this is, my current musical playlist doesn’t portray any of that. Instead it’s a compilation of recent popular music that’s made its way into the charts. And yes, some of it I’m ashamed of, but it’s hard to argue with a playlist that works and I’ve found that when I’m writing, this one gets the most done!
