Day: Sunday. Activity: Shockingly not hungover therefore cracking on with that skirt. Fags: 14. (I'll cut down soon!) Alcohol intake: Last night, about 3 units. Today, none :]. Money spent: £35. (Brunch, fags and new brown leather belt!) Indulgence: Brunch at Browns. (Yuumm.) Listening to: See below.

Like my fashion, I like variation when it comes to music. Most people know me as the kind of girl who listens to every new band before anyone else has heard of them, but drops them in a flash for the next new act, who in tern will be disregarded too.
But, today I am going to put my case forward that there is so much more to my music taste than that. I'm not the kind of person who only likes "cool" music - I don't follow a style or feel the need to hate every song in the chart because it's too "commercialised" (after all there's a reason they got into the chart, too many people dismiss music as being "catchy but talentless" - but does it not take talent to create something catchy? Maybe "Girls Aloud" aren't the most talented singers about, but who hasn't found themselves humming "I Don't Speak French" as they wonder around Karen Miller!? As much as we hate to admit it, we love a bit of pop every once in a while - the name's just a give away!)
My music taste ranges from Johnny Cash to Pull Tiger Tail to Lilly Allen! Lets face it, however hard these culture driven kids may try, no-one ants to listen to the same kind of music 24/7. Just like no-one wants to wear the same label head to toe, or watch the same TV show everyday (with the exception of Sex and the City, of coarse!)
So, here I am about to promote my new music fix. Juggling 1million different styles of music for 1million different moods isn't easy to say the least, so what could be more perfect than a fabulously talented band that have music for every occasion!? I've been a fan of Atmosphere for a while now, but I only recently realised how often I find them blaring from my speakers. When getting ready for a big night out, nothing gets me in the mood more than dancing around my room (normally with a different heel on each foot and about 20 different dresses in my arms) to "You" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCywipbWYcM) - the perfect chill-out-dance track to take away the stress of the slight possibility someone else will wear the same dress as you. It has never failed to put a smile on my face. And for heart-warming tracks, they've hit the nail on the head with "Yesterday" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFakOHRED_w&feature=related) - a charming love song with a twist (great for making you put things in perspective, as what seems like a song about longing for an ex-lover turn out to be about a diseased father - bet you've stopped thinking about that looser that left you now!) that makes you want to cry smile and laugh at the same time!
Well, if I haven't converted you to Atmosphere yet, then I don't think I ever will, so check out these beauties instead!
