Musical ambience and intellectual writing.


I am physically unable to write without being plugged in to some form of music. And I also listen to my favourite tracks to death. I feel like my yet-to-be-written thesis acknowledgements should pay homage to all the wonderful earworms these talented musicians have produced in some form eventually.

A quick catalogue of which words have been written to which music:

- Switching 'On': Parachutes, Coldplay

- Privacy for Profit: YouTube Mix, The Corrs

- Buymylife.com: Quiet is the New Loud, Kings of Convenience

- #sexbait: YouTube Mix, The Whitest Boy Alive

- #In$tagLam: Riot on an Empty Street, Kings of Convenience

- (En)gendering Cute: Takk, Sigur Ros

- Entrepreneurial Selves: Ghost Stories, Coldplay

- 'Perceived Interconnectedness': Declaration of Dependence, Kings of Convenience

- Transference of Intimacy: Our Endless Numbered DaysIron and Wine

- Paradoxes of Intimacy: Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends, Coldplay 

- #lifeisgood: Stars, The best of 1992-2002, The Cranberries

- Shamelebrity: YouTube Mix, Anna Ternheim 

Will keep updating this list as I go along. 

Also, thank God for YouTube.
(okay please don't Soundcloud, MySpace, Bandcamp, Spotify etc me because I am noob).
