2010 / 2011: My personal Soundtrack [14, quick list]

.

I started keeping a diary on October 26th, 1997. I was 14 and in 9th grade. I kept up until 2004, and every year, I made a ‚personal soundtrack‘ with songs that reflected last years‘ themes and storylines.

Here are 20 songs for ‚Season 14‘, October 2010 to October 2011.

For part one, 1997 to 1998, please go here (Link).

For part two, 1998 to 1999, please go here (Link).

For a complete list of all 14 years, go here (Link tba).
