What was the first song you played on repeat?
I had the single of 'Love Song For A Vampire' by Annie Lennox on tape and used to play that on repeat, that's the earliest I can remember. Either that or Shakespeare’s Sister's 'Stay', something a bit weird and dramatic anyway.

A song lyric that inspires you?
"Daylight licked me into shape, I must have been asleep for days,
And moving lips to breathe her name, I opened up my eyes,
And found myself alone, alone, alone above a raging sea,
That stole the only girl I loved and drowned her deep inside of me."

'Just Like Heaven' by The Cure.

Anything by Erasure.

Best love song of all time?
'Just Like Heaven' by The Cure.

'Elephant' by Tame Impala.
