Ever since getting into my current relationship almost two years ago, I gained between 30-40lbs. Following my high school graduation, I weighed 235lbs. I was overweight, didn't workout, and hated how I looked. Getting into college made me adapt to a new daily routine; I ate differently, rode a bicycle indoors, occasionally went to the gym, and did some workouts from home. Over the following four years or so, I weighed around 185lbs.
Karl Pilkington became known from his time on "The Ricky Gervais Show" in early 2000s. Started in 2001, the radio show consisted of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Karl Pilkington. Despite the name, the show centered mainly on Karl. The show aired for a few years and gained a large increase in following when it was released as a podcast in the later part of 2005. It was so popular, that it was in the 2007 Guinness World Record for the most downloaded podcast in the world. The show was then converted to an animated series in 2010.
These songs have been imprinted on me after countless plays. I know that many readers, myself included, who come across lists like this don't give a lot of credence to songs that are performed by an artist that they dislike or just have a skewed view of, but bear with me. Give these songs a listen...what have you got to lose?
