    You guys are great! Some of my favorite songs are included in this playlist. I like the overall theme and message of these songs. I’m going through a tough time and music actually does help.

    Love this! For my GCSE final drama assessment, my group of 5 girls did this pretty rad synchronised movement sequence to Mad World, so that song always brings back loads of memories. The rest of this playlist is perfect too though- Lana Del Rey, Grimes, Mountain Goats, Sky Ferreira… Aaah!

    Like this playlist a lot.
    Sky Ferreira, Grimes, Cocteau Twins – some of my ‘ultimate’ faves.

    Shake the Devil has some seriously haunting eerie beautiful vibes going on – I don’t really get the message though, can anyone explain?

    Mandy Moore-In My Pocket. “Nothing but pennies in my pocket. Nothing but faith to keep me warm”. The Lyrics are hopeful. Feels like I am being teleported to India listening to a beautiful girl rock out for change in her cup!
