apologies if the links stop working – WP is having one of those days…..

Day 23 A song you think everybody should listen to



I am going for 2 Cellos playing Thunderstruck. I only came across these guys a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Jill Dennison) and have driven our son crazy with them. Our son is going for Disturbed and Sound of Silence.

Day 24 A song by a band you wish were still together


We both agree on this one. Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven

Day 25 A song you like by an artist no longer living



Son is going for Bowie and Heroes. I agree but also going for Rory Gallagher and Shinkicker.

Day 26 A song that makes you want to fall in love


Again son refusing to consider this question. He’s at that age… I must admit it’s a odd question for me as well. So I’m going for Fleetwood Mac – Tusk. This song makes me want to fall in love the Flares and late 70s dress sense again.

Day 27 A song that breaks your heart


Son refusing to have anything to do with this question. So I have gone for five Finger Death Punch – Gone Away. Yes they are very very heavy. But this song is different. It’s really sad and kinda beautiful. Plus it breaks me every time I hear it. It’s about losing the love of your life.

Day 28 A song by an artist whose voice you love


Agreement again, even my mum loved his voice. Freddie Mercury (Queen) – Who wants to live forever.

Day 29 A song you remember from your childhood



The theme song for In the Night Garden just takes us back to our son’s childhood. I just remember the theme from the Flashing Blade TV series as a kid. I bought the dvd for this series as a joke for my partner – it remains unopened…..

Day 30 A song that reminds you of yourself



I’m going for Whitesnake – Here I Go Again. It just seems to sum me up these days. Son going for Alice Cooper – Schools Out. Because he hates school.

  1. Fascinating choices. I should have waited to post my stuff until I read others. Others’ posts remind of things I didn’t think of on my own.

    I forgot about Gone Away, tho I prefer The Offspring’s version.

  2. I was thrilled to see the 2Cellos here!!! I only discovered them the night I posted them, thanks to my friend David (who is on your side of the pond, in Wales)! Thanks for the mention, too!

    Some of your choices are a not quite of my generation, but it’s awesome to see you and your son doing this together! What fun!
