Who knows, who knows, who knows, who knows
I just go where the trade winds blows
Sending love to my friends and foes
And i suppose, Am pleased
To be chilling in the West Indies
Jah provide all my wants and needs
I got the sunshine rivers and trees

Love this tune by Protoje and Chronixx. Appropriate send-off music as I will be in Jamaica for a week!

Middle Aged and Listening 2 Music

I went to the Reading Festival over the weekend and saw some great acts that I knew already and a few I had never heard of. Going to the festival reminded me that it’s important to try something a bit different; going outside of your usual listening circle.
