So, what do PhD students listen to?

I'm kind of embarrassed about sharing my musical taste with you all, but Ceri insists I must! So, if you've ever wondered what museum studies PhD students listen to for inspiration then head over to the right-hand sidebar tout suite. Over to you Ceri... ;)

My plaster obsession as a child I think can also be attributed to Mr Ant as well as the eyeliner :)

Very clever Amy... Looks like a good mix of stuff to get you through the PhD! Although I haven't spotted a-ha yet (was very pleased to see that Ceri has 'hunting high and low!'). I'm more of a 'The Sun always shines on TV' fan myself!
Ah (or should that be 'Aha'?)! But these are just my 'top albums'. In fact I had a little listen of 'Take On Me' when I got to the office this afternoon. ;)
