    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.

    I love S Club 7. Apparently they used to have a kids TV show that I would watch when I was really young and I cried when they split up! My favourite is "Reach for the Stars", which was number one on the day I was born

    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 :yep:

    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 :thumbsup:

    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



    Spoiler:

    Just to say I do actually love this song :yep:

    Five Years - David Bowie

    Literally about the end of the world.

    2016/17.

    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
