Heads Down, Eyes Up

The rather musically inclined Jed Hallam tagged me in a challenge to create two tracklists.

As Jed puts it:


Heads down: (verb) To put your head in a downward position and dance manically. Until your eyes bleed a bit. Or your mouth falls off.

Eyes up: (verb) The lifting of one’s eyes after a night of ‘heads down’. The state of mind that yearns for the sun rise. Or more tequila.

So, here you go… Incidentally, I wonder if all of these will go into one epic playlist?

Heads Down

Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division
Disappointed – Electronic
