University soundtracks


#1

just had Odessa by Caribou pop up on my big ol’ Spotify playlist and remembered how you’d hear it at every fucking party or house when I was a student.

that and don’t stop believing by Journey and I love college by Asher Roth.

If we’re talking Freshers’ Week:

  • Prodigy: The Fat Of The Land
  • Bentley Rhythm Ace
  • Fatboy Slim
  • Chumbawamba: Tubthumping

Any of the above will take me straight back to the sticky carpets of our uni hall bar disco

I remember ‘Empire State Of Mind’ and ‘I Gotta Feeling’ being played heavily one year when I was running the college bar. What utter shite.

No other clear memories as I was deep into a phase of avoiding pop music and just listening to indie stuff
