That playlist is such an inspired and cool idea. Some of the music that’s most important to me is French pop music — stuff none of my friends and family would ever know how to search for if I lost the cognitive ability to do it. Music does provide me with great joy, and I’d be poorer without it.

I think I’d better put some lists together, not that I expect sudden dementia to strike me down, but I am getting on and better prepared than not!
