We could tell you something about ourselves, maybe divulge a dark, terrible secret but we’re not that stupid. This is the internet and IP addresses are trackable. We thought instead we could offer you a glimpse into our souls another way - by letting you take a listen to our very favourite songs. Songs that have soundtracked group hugs, solo cries, transcendental moments and some pretty ordinary ones too, but which nevertheless each mean something to us.
