So it’s been a while since I last posted on my #tbt1998 playlist. There is no winter in Indonesia, but the rainy season has already started and if you are soaking wet and entering a shopping mall, you will completely feel as if you are stepping into a gigantic refrigerator.
December is a gloomy, dark clouds-kind of month, so this month’s playlist is also filled with trip-hop songs and songs with dark, depressive lyrics. The playlist includes Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”, Portishead’s “Only You”, Depeche Mode’s “Only When I Lose Myself”, and Radiohead’s “No Surprises”.
Bring down the government
They don’t, they don’t speak for us
