Okay, so I got bored. And I know this is sad. But I don’t care :p

As you probably know, I bought Laura an iPod to take to Australia with her, basically cos I’m not good with emotion, and it’s just easier to give stuff than say “I’m gonna miss you” . Anyway, I was piddling about tonight listening to some music, and I thought it’d be kind of cool to do a “Laura going away” playlist. I realise that this is exactly the same as making a mix-tape like you did when you were at school (not that *I* did that, I was much too smooth…if I like a girl when I was a kid I did the manly thing and slapped myself and avoided her. It just saved time, you know.) but frankly I don’t care. This is what I’ve got so far.

  1. Laura – Scissor Sisters
  2. Australia – Manic Street Preachers
  3. A Million Miles Away – Lenny Kravitz
  4. Other Side of The World – KT Tunstall
  5. See The World – Kooks
  6. Going Missing – Maximo Park
  7. All Around the World – Oasis
  8. Moving – Supergrass (a bit tenuous, I know)
  9. Around the World – Red Hot Chili Peppers
  10. Some Fantastic Place – Squeeze
  11. Half the World Away – Oasis
  12. Good Riddance (Time of your life) – Green Day. thinking of the bit in parentheses here, honest 😉
  13. Get Miles – Gomez
  14. Around the World – Daft Punk
  15. On your Own – Blur
  16. Movin’ Out (Antony’s Song) – Billy Joel
  17. Ticket to Ride – The Beatles
  18. Waving Goodbye To The Train or Bus – Arctic Monkeys
  19. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – Elton John

Okay, so maybe some of these aren’t strictly in keeping with my theme. But they are, a bit. So there. It was fun, it killed a bit of my time :)

If anybody has any suggestions, let me know and I’ll try to find them. Anybody saying “Smack my bitch up” by the Prodigy will be punished.
