I have always said that music is the soundtrack to life and there are key moments in my life which I always remember when certain songs come on the radio. Here's a walk through the Tracks of My Years:
The Carpenters - We've Only Just Begun
Bob Marley - Buffalo Soldier
Michael Jackson - Black or White
Mr Blobby - The Mr Blobby Song
Zig and Zag - Them Girls Them Girls
Ant and Dec/PJ and Duncan - If I Give You My Number
Aqua - Dr Jones
This song reminds me of secondary school, such a fun, bouncy tune that I remember singing between classes one day. Aqua were quite symbolic of those years with their piercings and funky hair - I think they took me away from how I felt at the time, being plain and ginger.
The Cartoons - Witch Doctor
Eminem - Cleanin' Out My Closet
Alanis Morisette - Head over Feet
When my parents were splitting up just before my GCSEs, and when teenage angst got to me, I would turn to Alanis Morissette. The Jagged Little Pill album got me through my teenage years and I remember laying on my bed listening to it for hours each week.
Ash - Walking Barefoot
Massive Attack - Teardrop
DB Boulevard - Point of View
Coldplay - Yellow
Heartland - I Loved Her First
Ed Sheeran - Small Bump
I'm looking forward to seeing what the next years of life bring - and what songs remind me of them too!

Thank you, Donna, for sharing the Tracks of Your Years with us. I hated Mr Blobby because he kept Take That off Christmas number 1 that year - Babe was a much better song if you ask me... but I used to love PJ & Duncan, Aqua and The Cartoons - oh they don't make them like they used to do they?
