One of my favourite ways to spend an evening is to lay on my sofa listening to music and tidying up my song library. (That’s pretty much what I’m doing right now, truth be told.)
I often listen back over my recent sets and think about what went well (and what didn’t go so well). I might make a note of something I want to remember.
Today, while I was listening, a traditional English saying relating to a marriage custom came to mind:
’Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’.
(A bride that wears something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue on her wedding day will find good fortune, or so the saying goes.)
I like this saying and found myself thinking that it could be used to describe the way I select my music when I’m DJing. (Maybe it brings me good luck too.)
