Ithaca’s Djamila Azzouz: The 10 songs that changed my life

“My early taste in music was very much shaped by whatever was in my dad’s car, like a lot of people. It was a lot of Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, The Eagles – what most people would refer to as ‘dad music’, except I fucking love Phil Collins. This is one of those songs that gets stuck in your head. Even now, it’s such an earworm. I remember being a kid and being like, ‘What does Sussudio mean?’ I thought that it was probably a really important concept that I didn’t understand as a child, but it’s just a fucking nonsense word, which makes it even better. He made it up when he was writing the song, like a placeholder, but when he went back to change it nothing sounded as good, so he just kept it.”
