Music keeps me sane, and music like it does with many people, it makes me feel things. It makes me feel things that I didn't know I could feel over a song.

And if you did, then you're right.
Edge Of You Knife is amazing, it's super catchy, like I'd be lying if I said I didn't have it stuck in my head at least 10 times a day.
It's so upbeat and catchy, that it makes you want to listen to it on repeat (I mean I clearly listen to hardly anything else considering it's my most listened to …

Why I Love: The Mocking Jays...

I have done these before, I did one on Twin Atlantic and one on Deaf Havana. So it's only fair that I do one on The Mocking Jays, because if you know me you know that I support this band a hell of a lot. So let's do this!
