Hello my pretty shining people. So although Sophie is on a hiatus at the mo I was tagged to do this post about 2 months ago, so in a timely fashion I have now ransacked my Spotify playlists to produce this beauty. Happy reading, happy listening.
We Will Rock You- Queen. Because I remember my dad first playing this song to me and my sister Sophie on vinyl in our living room. Doesn’t get home-ier than that.
Ah where to begin. Musicians love to sing about love, but then, what else is there? Really?
Love of My Life- Queen. This song takes itself seriously but finding the love of your life is no laughing matter.
Say You Love Me- Fleetwood Mac. I have a love affair with Fleetwood Mac so I could actually include all their songs here, but for the sake of your sanity, lets not.
Power & Break Up Song- Little Mix
Little Mix are my JAM! I love a good shimmy but these are my most powerful bops.
Welcome to the 60’s- Hairspray. I have seen Hairspray at the theater and it was fabulous.
Always Remember us this Way- Lady Gaga
This is Me- Greatest Showman. Obviously. Though I do love the whole album.
(Is it cheating to say the Rain Sounds Playlist on Spotify?)
If yes, then alternatively July- Austin Myles Grant.
Mambo No.5 (a Little Bit of….)- Lou Bega. I remember dancing to this song in a Cinderella dress and twirling around until I felt sincerely sick. Oh to be 13 years old.
In My Car (I’ll Be The Driver)- Shania Twain. A classic from my childhood, me and my sister used to sing this- and still would if it came on the radio (which it wouldn’t because this song is too old, and too yee-haw for Heart Radio)
IDGAF- Dua Lipa. This song is attitude.
Wake up Boo!- The Boo Radleys. This song is sunshine.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Cyndi Lauper. Cyndi knew what she was talking about all those years ago. We all just wanna have fun.
Best of my Love- The Emotions. The catchiest, grooviest, most wonderful song.
If Not For You- George Harrison. A golden Beatle.
Wonderful Tonight- Eric Clapton. An old song now but luckily it’s timeless.
Forever Young- Alphaville. Tears.
Father and Son – Yusuf/Cat Stevens. More tears.
Landslide- Fleetwood Mac. Tears everywhere.
Time After Time – Cyndi Lauper. Heard this song in the movie ‘Military Wives’ and haven’t stopped singing it since. It’s been months. It may never cease.
No Judgement – Niall Horan. ‘bare foot and a bottle of wine’~ this song knows me.
The Axis of Awesome- 4 Chords. A lot of songs use the same 4 chords, these folks put them all in one absolute banger.
Love in the dark- Adele. ‘don’t try to change my mind, I’m being cruel to be kind’
Lover (Remix) [feat. Shawn Mendes]- Taylor Swift. ‘I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, but I want ’em all’
Falling- Harry Styles. ‘and I’m well aware I write too many songs about you’
Someone you Loved- Lewis Capaldi.
Don’t Start Now- Dua Lipa.
Angels- Robbie Williams. This was always the last song that played at my student night out at university, SO many memories of being sad the night was finishing but glad I was about to get loads of greasy carbs.
Go Your Own Way- Fleetwood Mac. My first solo drive in my new car was to IKEA to pick up some furniture. I listened to my new Fleetwood Mac album and this song came on whilst I took a wrong turn and got lost. Rather apt don’t you think.
(I Just) Died in your Arms- Cutting Crew. Sophie sings this song all the time at home, when I think of it I always smile.
Holes- Passenger. Catchy.
Dreams- Fleetwood Mac. Dreamy.
Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen. MAMAAAAAAAAAAA.
Daddy lessons- Beyonce. Besides your bread and butter ‘single ladies’ I never really listened to much Queen B but then this song came on BBC Radio 2 -of all places- and I loved it.
Blue Wonderful- Elton John. I am a huge, huge, huge fan of Elton John. However, I never listened to his most recent material for fear of it not matching up to his olden goldies. But then I discovered the song Blue Wonderful and all that changed. The end.
*ALL FLEETWOOD MAC ALBUMS PLEASE*
You belong with me- Taylor Swift. After watching this music video I decided to steal this story line and pass it off to Sophie as my own made up idea, it was a peculiar time and she hasn’t trusted me since.
So, this has been a little taste of some of my music loves. I can only apologize for the amount of Fleetwood Mac which Sophie correctly predicted would be a main feature.
Thank you for reading and may music always bring you comfort and clarity.
