Only a handful of songs are on my phone

When i was young i liked country and pop music a lot. It gave me comfort and hope when i was sad and lost. But when i got older i realized there is nothing new coming anymore. Sometimes there is a song popping up i find interesting enough to play it on repeat for a while, and let it absorb all the feelings and thoughts i have at the moment, like a temporary distraction. But at the end i still have the same music on my phone, some of them are with me since many years, because it’s familiar and soothing:

  • Song “On the Nature of Daylight” by Max Richter, 2004
  • Song “Ashes Of My Paradise” by Kelly Sweet, 2012
  • Song “I Was a Fool” by Tegan and Sara, 2013
  • Songs “That would be enough” & “Burn” by Phillipa Soo, 2015
  • Album “The Corrs Unplugged” by The Corrs, 1999
  • Album “Vivaldi: The Four Seasons” by Janine Jansen, 2005
  • Album “Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto” by Janine Jansen, 2008

The first time i heard “I Was a Fool” by Tegan and Sara was in London, while i was eating breakfast at McDonalds. When i noticed the music from their speakers, i immediately took my phone out to record a piece of it, so i could download the song later. The first time i heard “Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto” was in the movie “Le Concert” with actress Mélanie Laurent as Anne-Marie Jacquet. I really liked that movie and it made me cry a little too.
