    I don't really love music like most people, I assume this links to my weird musical taste.

    I came closest to loving Linkin Park and Eminem (not everything musical is a band btw)

    Nowadays I mainly listen to Amazon Music's station 'Deep Focus' which is a lot of viking style music and just calming beautiful sounds.

    I often use it when running as it keeps me focused and driven and I tend to get out there and get it done with that musical choice.

    This is correct. I remember seeing them at The Rainbow. I was right at the from and was sure she stared at me all night. If she did, she was probably thinking, "I wish that twerp at the front would stop staring at me"!

    What a great band The The were. However, I'm sure that whist Matt Johnson thought he was being really clever at the time, there was never a chance of making it into the digital age saddled with an unsearchable name.
