The Teenage Kicks Running Playlist

My phone recently broke and I had to replace it – something I thought was just an inconvenience at the time, but when I got a shiny new one I was really frustrated to realise that something had gone wrong with my iCloud.  All of my texts, photos and playlists from the previous six months (the last broken phone) had gone missing. I had lost my marathon playlist.  it may be silly but I had a lot of memories and motivation attached to that particular arrangement of songs.

Ever since I’ve been trying to create some new playlists rather than try and recreate the old, and this is one I came up with.  It’s filled with late nineties and early noughties teenage pop punk and I find it very motivational.  The music may not be great but my attachment to the songs has really stood the test of time, and listening to music you used to love because it’s like tapping into a source of enthusiasm you didn’t know that you had.
