Okay, so some of these bands aren't exactly spring chickens, but I'm suddenly aware that I have *no idea* what young folk are listening to these days. Since my iPod hit its 20GB limit and buying a new CD would mean deleting an old one, I've not searched material out in the way I once would. All the radios at home are tuned to Radio 4, and the gardening schedule means I don't catch the charts. Or, to be honest, watch the various music television outlets that much. I'm sitting here in the offices of MTV, listening to Debussy, 5-year-old triphop and also going through a slightly regressive and regrettable early-genesis phase. I look at my listening list in my blog, and realise it's not changed in months.

How did something that was the currency of my very existence, the reason for getting up in the morning, the reason for leaving shitty jobs, cease to matter?

And is there something I should be resenting for having pushed it out?

First loves never never die. Don't fight it.
