James Murphy "ten songs that saved your life" (a 15 song playlist)

There's no doubt that when I grow up, even older than I am now that is, that I want to be James Murphy. I hope to be in the best dance band of all time, play a sold out show in Madison Square Garden and then quit at my peak only to go on to live a life of GQ interviews and endless kick-ass DJ gigs with the occasional Podcast interview, where I could make even the biggest music nerds feel like blockheads due to my out of this world obsession for music knowledge. Murphy is a wizard in world of court jesters. Below is a 15 song playlist that James made for a website called 10 songs that saved your life. It's my favorite thing right now. Enjoy.

02. SUICIDE cheree
03. THE FALL paintwork
04. THE RAPTURE house of jealous lovers
05. CAN i’m so green
06. LEONARD COHEN famous blue raincoat
