Music has always in some way been a big part of my life. So I’ve been playing with the idea of doing a weekly music segment on the blog.
My love for music started when I was very young. My mum has always had a ton of records and later also cds that she listens too everyday. So one of the stories she loves to tell about me is when I was just a toddler and I’d stand in front of the tv and shake my diaper clad butt to MTV. (I may be revealing my young age now).
Those who know me will know that I, for a girl, always had a strange fascination with boobs. Perhaps that’s why my toddler self adored this song and music video or it may just have been the upbeat pop song that drew me in.
Another toddler me favourite and a grown up me favourite too. I now own a few George Harrison cds and he is by far my favourite Beatles member. My mum is all about Paul McCartney. Later his works in Traveling Wilburys introduced me to Tom Petty.
Now as a teen my taste in music was at best rather questionable. I remember my very first cd was Ace of Base. I was so proud. We only had one cd player in the house so my parents had to record it over to tape so I could listen to it in my room. Later came Spice Girls. My friends and I would preform in front of parents and I was always Posh Spice because of my dark hair. I really wanted to be Baby Spice, the blond one. After that came Britney Spears. I remember a classmate had filled a tape with only Hit me baby one more time and she’d play it in every recess.
In my later teens I started my goth phase. I wore loads of eyeliner and safety pins and listened to a lot of “dark” music. My favourite from that time was this one.
When that had run its course I went back to the classics. I listened to a lot of jazz and 40’s music like Andrew Sisters. Now a song I’ve always found to be a classic which I still haven gotten tired of is this
There’s been lots of other music genres and bands we haven’t even touched on. Which is why the hopefully next many Wednesdays you’ll tune in to more music. I have an idea of different themes so hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
The last number. A song from the album I’m super excited to buy when it gets a bit cheaper.
