"If music be the food of love, play on," was my first line as Duke Orsino in my Year 8 production of Twelfth Night. While the snub of not being awarded a Colours Tie like every other member of the main cast still burns daily, I'm more in love with music than ever. I even have a tattoo of a phonograph, not because I'm hip enough to listen to records, but because it's such an iconic image that evokes such sweet sounds.
Midway through the year, I decided to start making monthly playlists, both to share with a few friends and also document what I was listening to on a given month for future Lloyd. I'm not sure it's music that the primary readers of this blog — my grandparents — will enjoy, but I'm sharing them here nevertheless. Play on.
