Safety In Sound Mixtapes #1: iRage

You know sometimes, when you're just having one of those days, and you need to just listen to a succession of songs that embody the way you feel at that given time as a kind of catharsis? When you feel the need to lock yourself in your room and reconnect with your emo years, when you just fancy feeling like letting that angst ridden teenager out? Well, I am in such a mood. Therefore, this coupled with the fact that this is my official 100th post on this blog, I have been inspired to start something I've been planning on here for months. 
So here goes: I present to you, my loyal readers, 20 of my favourite songs to wail, gnash your teeth to and write in your diary about. Listen at your peril. 
And keep your eye out over the summer, because now uni is finished and I have time to myself, I will be setting up a Safety In Sound spotify account just to make similar playlists for all you wonderful people, based on various themes, in the hope that they will provide some comforting listening. They'll hopefully be a mix of classics, some bands you may not have heard of and some of my own super-personal favourites, complete with some homemade artwork. Just my little way of bringing you some of my own Safety In Sound, if you'll excuse me being so disgustingly sappy. Enjoy!


Click the bold title below to take you to spotify for the full playlist, or else just have fun searching the individual songs on iTunes. I wish I could simply give you these songs as a free download, but until someone wants to pay the royalties for me...
