The Magic of Musical Nostalgia

There is a playlist on my Spotify entitled Early Noughties. Consisting of over two hundred and fifty songs, it is full of musical gems by the likes of P!nk, Eminem, Christina Aguilera and Avril Lavigne, to name just a few. There is also some serious cheese in there, with guilty pleasures like The Ketchup Song and O-Zone’s Dragostea Din Tei. Basically, the kind of songs I hope don’t start playing when other people are around and Spotify is on shuffle.
