That reminds you of someone
That reminds you of a place
For me and my colleagues, it was the beginning of everything so personally, this song reminds me of Lisbon.
That turns you on
I can't see music from a sexual perspective, it's a flaw in the job. I start to analyze the music and I get distracted!
You listen when you’re sad
You listen with your friends
A lot of DJ sets!
That pumps you up for a night out
That goes well with a glass of wine
I don't drink wine... but with Gin goes perfectly.
That’s been with you since your quarantine
You wish you had written
You haven’t seen performed live
By your favorite artist
I haven't had a favorite artist since I was 17, 18 years old.
You’re going to listen when the quarantine is over
