Chinese Survival Guide: Music

So here is something that is so important when surviving in China, music. I'm the kind of person who cannot go without music sometimes. The is nothing worse than being stuck somewhere without a source of music. As a matter of fact, when I was still in college I listened to music so much that I actually apologized to people on my facebook profile because I would wear my headphones so much that nobody could ever get my attention. So in preparation for my return to China I have been making some playlists.

I didn't realize how many British bands I listen to. So here's what I'll be listening to on my iPod, the theme is the British Emipre...

Life In Technicolor - Coldplay
Dream Awake - The Frames

Songs For Clay (Disappear Here) - Bloc Party
Gone Up In Flames - Morning Runner

You Don't Get It - Look See Proof
Thoughts of a Dying Atheist - Muse
It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry - Glasvegas

X-Ray - The Maccabees
With A Heavy Heart (I Regret to Inform You) - Does It Offend You, Yeah?

Revolution - The Beatles
Skeleton Boy - Friendly Fires

*Cosmic Egg - Wolfmother
*Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap
*In One Ear - Cage The Elephant

*Songs from bands not from the British Isles, but hey, they're from places that were once part of the British Empire (Australia and USA.) So I guess that counts for something.

Seriously like 45% of my music library are British Artists - Bloc Party; Does It Offend You, Yeah?; Sting and the Police; Keane; Friendly Fires; The Frames (If you count Ireland); Muse; Bombay Bicycle Club; Morning Runner; Look See Proof; The Who; The Beatles; The Maccabees; Radiohead; Pull Tiger Tail; Coldplay; Glasvegas... and those are only the ones I can think of off-top.
