Rory Torrens’ Mad Mix

18 December 2012

We do meet a lot of musical boys through Boys by Girls and often they send us playlists full to the brim with super cool music for us to listen to in the office; thus today we share with you the music loves of beautiful boy Rory Torrens at Elite Models London

Rory was featured in our second book “Closer” back in 2011, and since we hadn’t caught up with him in a while, we thought we’d see what was currently on his iPod. Describing himself as cheeky, naughty and mischievous (although points out they all mean the same), we weren’t sure what to expect from Rory in terms of musical choices. Packed full of classics plus some tunes even we’d never heard of, we’ve had a listen and have decided… we like!

Bruce Springsteen – Glory Days
Black Sabbath – War Pigs
Sam Cooke – A Change Is Gonna Come
Rodney P – The Nice Up
Jehst – Starting Over
Big L, Kool G Rap – Fall Back
Shyheim – Furious Anger
Genius/GZA, Method Man – Shadowboxin’
Onra – I Wanna Go Back
Muddy Waters – I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man
Stealers Wheel – Stuck In The Middle With You
Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)
