A hundred of my favourite songs: 2010-2015

To celebrate my impending graduation from university I’d like to dedicate this to the music that helped me through my law degree, the tunes that distracted me from my mind numbing, the beats that made me sad, the tracks that lifted me up and the notes that bounded against my chest as the words of another lecture trickled out of my subconscious as quickly as they joined up. Here are my favourite 100 songs during my time as an Arts/Law student… and also conveniently, my 100 favourite tracks from the first half of this decade.
