Finally! The end of my 30 day music challenge.

Day 28: A song by an artist with a voice you love

This seems like quite an odd category to have on this list. Maybe the person who wrote it was running out of ideas? Surely you would love the voices on all your favourite songs? Anyway, pushing along…this would have to be Jump by Gary Barlow. It is such a beautiful song and the words mean so much to me. They are perfect for when you are facing a challenge in your life and I know I will be listening to them tonight before I go back to work for the first time in years tomorrow. Gary, you are a legend.

Day 29: A song you remember from your childhood

Music was a huge part of growing up. I can remember sitting down on a Sunday evening with huge headphones on and listening to the charts, and flicking through my parent’s vinyl collection at the weekend. I think this song was on a Top of the Pops album with a very risque cover! I still listen to it regularly now: Video Killed The Radio Star by The Buggles

Day 30: A song that reminds you of yourself

This was really hard. I don’t think there is a specific one, but I will go for True Colors by Cyndi Lauper. It’s a great song and a gentle reminder to be who you are, which we all need from time to time.

 

So I finally managed to finish the challenge! Here is the complete playlist: 30 Day Music Challenge. Let me know what you think and feel free to share your recommendations with me.

 

Day 18: 30 day music challenge

Day 18: A song from the year you were born

1977 was a fine year for music. This year I will be forty along with this song Yes Sir, I Can Boogie by Baccara. I challenge you not to dance to this, it’s impossible. And if you have the chance, listen to Louis Theroux and Adam Buxton butcher it here: Adam Buxton’s podcast. It’s well worth a listen to for the laughs. I love Adam Buxton’s humour.

I wouldn’t mind looking like either of them…I wonder what ever happened to Baccara?
