This week's Tracks of My Years is written by the very lovely Jo who blogs over at Miracle Max. She can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Jo, it's over to you and the Tracks of your Years.
Music always has and always will be a big part of my life. So many songs bring back special memories to me but I’ve tried to narrow it down to some of my favourites:
Spice Girls – Wannabe
This song was released when I was 12 and I remember dancing around the living room to it, I instantly fell in love with the Spice Girls and over the next few years I purchased every song they released and went to watch them in concert. I still have a little dance all these years later if I ever hear this song.
The Black Eyed Peas – Meet Me Halfway
I met my now husband Adam in a bar back in 2010 and this song was playing at the exact moment I first locked eyes – for this reason, it will always be so special to me and I’ll never forget that moment.
Starship – Nothings Gonna Stop Us
Me and Adam couldn’t agree on a first dance at our wedding so we had 2 dances, this being the second one. We invited all our close family and friends up onto the dance floor to share the special moment with us and we have a lovely video of the moment – everyone looks so happy and we’ll treasure that memory forever.
The Carpenters – Please Mr Postman
The soundtrack to my childhood. My Mum and Dad had every Carpenters album ever released and would play it every time we went out in the car. I have fond memories of this song and us all singing along to it on our way to swimming lessons every Saturday morning.
Justin Bieber – Love Yourself
I can’t believe I’m including a Justin Bieber song in my selection. I never used to like him but just recently his music has taken a turn which really suits my current style. This is my favourite from his recent album. I was lucky enough to go and watch him in concert in London last week and he put on an awesome show. I’ve officially been converted.
Jo, I love your selection of tracks - I love Starship's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us now as it's from one of my all time favourite cheesy movies Mannequin - I have a huge list of films that I love and that are oh so cheesy but have such great soundtracks (oh that gives me an idea for a future Tracks of my years blog post ) and you're not alone as much as I hate to admit it, I too became a recent fan of Justin Bieber's music - what is happening to us all....
