The new Paramore album 'After Laughter' - especially the song '26'. I listened to this loads during my revision and the songs were often stuck in my head for my exams so I associate that album very heavily with GCSEs.

Ghost by the Mystery Skulls
"The world might do me in" - Expectations for exams and actions. How people me to fit social normalities.
"I've been feeling like a ghost and its what I hate the most" - I feel like I'm here, but can't really do anything.
"I might just disappear" - Run away? Die? No. Doesn't stop me thinking about it though.
"It doesn't matter" - Does anything matter?
"F***, it's you I hate the most" - By you, I mean me and these thoughts.

Probably my favourite song of the year so far is Old Growth by AIHVHIA. I love the way it builds up and the complementary rhythms between the vocals and mandolin, as well as the mandolin riffs themselves being really catchy. A very passionate vocal performance, too.

What's up by 4 Non Blondes
And so I cry sometimes When I'm lying in bed just to get it all out What's in my head And I, I am feeling a little peculiar And so I wake in the morning And I step outside And I take a deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs What's going on?😂😂😂😂

This song is accurate
Year started off promising, managed to sort out all uni application stuff, loved going to the post applicant days, sorted out accommodation and student finance
But then.......mock exams, failure, friend group dramas, feeling depressed in school, family arguments, actual exams, more failure, wanting to get away, feeling underappreciated, feeling like that one person that noone will remember and so on, basically turned my life into a mess
Just to say I do actually love this song

Five Years - David Bowie
Literally about the end of the world.
We're gonna destroy the world..
Pushing through the market square, so many mothers sighing
News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying
I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
I saw boys, toys electric irons and T.V.'s
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people
A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off, I think she would have killed them
A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer threw up at the sight of that
I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think
You knew you were in this song
And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk
We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
We've got five years, what a surprise
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
We've got five years, that's all we've got
