Here is a task! I have had a big life, and it’s soundtrack has been of the utmost importance!
I have loved The Beatles since I was a child. My Grandpa used to play Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band when I was a baby, and their music has seeped into my DNA. Anything by The Beatles provides comfort and remembrance of times past.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono. I could listen to Double Fantasy on replay each and every day. Lennon was an optimist and a cynic, a rebel and an artist. To be yourself in a world that wants to box you in, is an accomplishment indeed.
Bjork, Madonna, Marianne Faithful,Sinead O’Connor, Pink and Katy Perry. There are so many strong women out there. These ladies have had record companies attempt to change them in the past, and fail. It takes courage to stand firm! Their music has been a constant soundtrack in my life, whether it be from pop songs through to angry anthems.
Pink Floyd, The Wall. How I felt at 14, put into music. Isolated, alone, ridiculed and rejected. It may seem depressing, but when a young person finds music that resonates with them it is of great comfort. I am not as alone as I feared! Somebody else has been there!
Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run, one of the greatest songs ever!
I have eclectic tastes, and my music collection features Indie artists, contemporary, jazz, classical, opera, world and everything in between. What a gift these artists bring to our lives!
