Lately I seem to be collecting songs of walking tempo.
I’m not sure why, because tracks like this Small Black remix (blogneric, natch!) don’t always work so well on foot in London. There are too many distractions, uneven pavements, trick corners, stops and starts.
Songs like this make me want to walk through grass or snow again, methodically, watching a point on the horizon as it becomes slowly but steadily closer.
