There's not a lot happening here at the cottage so I found this post from November 2016 and completely updated it , I've crossed off all the older bits of music I had listed 2 years ago so I could include more favourites.
It's the Tracks Of My Years...........................
If you have ever listened to The Ken Bruce programme on Radio 2 weekday mornings you will have heard a celebrity choose 10 music tracks that have featured in, have a special meaning or are favourites in their lives.
Here are my tracks of my years and the reasons for choosing. 5 today and more tomorrow
Don't know why I like this but I just do
The Kinks- Waterloo Sunset from 1967
For some reason this reminds me of summer holidays at the Beach Station Caravan Site in Felixstowe. Mum owned a caravan there which was let out but we would go down quite a lot in the summer holidays. We roamed the site making friends with other children whose parents owned caravans there and with people who were just there for a weeks holiday. A girl whose name I can't remember ( but her Dad owned a butchers shop in Mendlesham) and I would sit by the check-in place on Saturdays to see if any nice looking boys were arriving...........We were about 12 or 13 years old!
This is a song from what was to have been a musical about John Betjeman . The musical never got made but I have a CD of his poems that were set to music and performed by all different artists. David Essex is more gorgeous now than he was back in the late 70's
The theme from Dances With Wolves by John Barry 1990
Just a couple of minutes of this and I'm in floods of tears......... weird. I didn't know much about Kevin Costner before this but managed to acquire lots of his DVDs afterwards
Take That - Back For Good 1995
Yes I was a 40 year old Take That fan!
