Music. Not just a word, but something essential to my life. Music is my constant companion: It accompanies me on my way to work; my pictures are edited following its rhythm and its presence fills my home with life and joy. There is the right tune for every mood from on top of the world to down in the dumps in my ever growing library, turning my life into a movie with the coolest soundtrack. Some songs are strongly connected to memories I experienced while listening to them; others remind me of certain important people in my life.

For the first time, I share some of my favourite songs with you. If you like quirky female artists, a little bit of electro and some nostalgia from the 70s and 80s, you might like my playlist.

If I had to choose a single song to represent my life, it would be Running Up That Hill by Kate Bush. This song is in my life since I was a child and never stops to wake emotions in me. Since I am still heartbroken about the death of David Bowie, I listened to a lot of Bowie recently and rediscovered all the old favourites as well as the new songs from his last album Blackstar. Besides making our lives richer, it has the virtue to make singers and stars immortal and this is probably the most unusual aspect of it.

10 Songs I'm Currently Obsessed With
Blackstar – David Bowie
Venus Fly – Grimes
Losing it – Rhodes
Wild One – I Am Harlequin
Intro – M83
Obvs – Jamie XX
Pass This On – The Knife
Fall From Grace – Future Islands
Nitrogen Pink – Polly Scattergood

  1. We have the same music favourites!! Kate Bush has been in my life since I was born. I remember hearing one of her songs and starting to cry just from her voice, it was magical and it changed my life since. And Bowie of course has been the same...they both made me feel like I wasn't alone in the world, that there were other quirky odd-ball people like me out there to connect with!! I hold their music so very dear to my heart & I'm always happy to find others who feel the same!! Still so sad about his passing, music is a little tender when listening too, but at the same time makes my heart feel happy that I existed when he did and I have the music to last me. Kate & Bowie are just my everything in music. Music means so much to me, like art and creativity, it is my life blood really, only way to describe it. So wonderful :))) xx
