In 2013 I turned 22, so I was able to sing along to Taylor Swift’s 22. Not that I particularly liked that song at the time, I think I’d heard it on the radio three times. The only thing I knew about that song is that Taylor sang the words Hey, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22.
Then the summer after that I turned 23 and I didn’t really have a jam anymore until earlier this year when Lucy Spraggan released her new album. Lucy is a British singer-songwriter who was a contestant on the X Factor in 2012 where she finished in ninth place due to illness. And maybe you can already guess, but on her new album We Are is a song called 23. I don’t have a clue, I’m learning to be free, I’n just the same as you. This is all I’ve learnt to be at 23.
But I’ve stumbled upon a minor problem. I turned 24 last Friday and I don’t know a song about being 24. And I was actually kind of hoping to make this song-thing something anual.
So music artists, if you read this, please write a song about being 24!
