Side A: Songs to make time go faster. Side B: Songs to make time go slower.

note from egads: So the request was songs that make time go faster/slower. Faster seems easy, I just put in some of my favourite party tunes, thinking that "time flies when you are having fun". But slower is kind of ambiguous. I could have either put the most depressing music, the worst music, music that is beautiful and ambient or chill and relaxing. I went with the latter two, I hope it works out.

Songs to either encourage or discourage me from packing up and moving abroad.
