Midlife crisis music

billie-piper

No words. No music. Just a crisis of faith. The following is the initial draft towards my Great Pop Mix Tape, useless to everyone. It has since expanded exponentially. It started as a project for my kids. I gave up that pretence a while back. I refer to this as mid-life crisis music because it occurs to me that it is (although there has always been a strong element to me that is a 12-year-old female). I do not know what to do with this compilation, or whether it will ever be complete (nothing is complete). All I can do is listen and dream. Listen and hyperventilate. Listen and imagine. Listen and wait for the knock on the door that announces Everett True has finally returned back from his travels and yes, he wants his fucking house and possessions back. This music makes me happy beyond drugs, beyond age. This music is a reason for living.
