Music has always been a constant throughout personal & work life. It is hilarious that the massive earphones I damaged my hearing with as a teenager are once again fashionable. though I suspect they are a little more technically advanced nowadays.

I have, for as long as I can remember, started my working day by blasting out some tune to get me in the mood for the day. It can be literally anything from opera to rap, swing to heavy metal. I have been lucky enough to see all genres over the years and believe I am currently the oldest person to have been in a mosh pit when I saw the Vaccines a couple of years ago.

This blog owes much of its readership to Twitter and other social media. A while back I mentioned that I wrote with music in the background and in particular my habit of starting each day with a different track. The great folks at @1pmlunch suggested I share the track each day. So now I do. Each weekday at 9.05am I post a link on Twitter as my “Start the day with a tune” tweet. It would be great if you looked it up, but don’t worry if you’ve missed it as all the music can be found on the MCCodger playlist on YouTube. here’s the link to the playlist, just click on the menu icon in the top left corner to see all the tracks.
