Firstly, I apologise if you are reading this and have tagged me and I haven't responded, I would love to have the time to do every tag I get, but I just don't have the time with running my own business and the kids. I have every intention of doing so but not enough hours in the day. I know a lot of you are the same, so I won't feel offended if you don't have time either!! However, this is a goody and I am in the mood for music! I have been tagged by Mothers Always Right and her list made me smile.
Here is a selection of music that has defined periods of my life (note my favourite songs but defining ones)
I have very vivid memories of singing this as a 4 year old on a family picnic and dancing my little socks off. I still absolutely LOVE this and have just played it to me kids who must have great taste as they have said "again, again" It has such a lovely appeal and more than 30 years later still sounds fresh!
Summary: My 1st music memory
I was (still am) a massive Madonna fan and was very good (Bossy) at organising all the other girls in the class at school into lines whilst I taught them a routine. By this stage in my life I was heavily involved in dance and drama and so knew all the routines. We laugh about my bossiness and obsession now with Madonna on facebook (how very modern) as a lot of my junior school friends are all over the world. I was a real task master until we had it perfect! How they put up with it I don't know.
Summary: Reminds me of lovely friends I still have some 30 years later (gulp)
This is the song I had my first ever "proper" kiss to. I had fancied the boy in question for weeks and we had had a few pecks on the cheek. We used to have a great under 18 Disco called the Ace that was run by the local police and the aim was always to get a slow dance and kiss with the boy you fancied! I still smile when I hear this now
Summary: 1st Kiss
If you were there, you'll love this.
By the time this came out, I was well established in TV advertising and living a great life flying across the world. I met one of my best friends in 1994 when she came to work for the TV station I was working for and we used to have the most fantastic girlies holidays - this was always on our tape deck!
Summary: Hot Summers/Great friends/Great job/Great memories
Reminds me of HAW. We have been together for 12 years and have been on a musical journey together. His music tastes are far more sophisticated than mine, he was all Bowie where I was all Wham, he was all Beatles whilst I was all Take That. He was also a trance DJ in Edinburgh whist at Uni and has so much vinyl it's ridiculous. We have been re-discovering lots of great, great bands together.
Summary: Many a Saturday night spent mixing it up with wine and HAW re-discovering great music.
As I have said, this is music that has defined periods of my life, not my favourite music (must blog about that) but all of these tunes bring a smile to my face for various reasons.
