Alfie Boe - Bring Him Home
This is one of my favourite songs from the West End musical Les Miserables. It brings me to tears every time I hear it. It's one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have heard. Whenever I hear it I think of the time when we took my daughter to London to see it for her 18th birthday. She loves musicals just as much as me (and knows all the words) and we were sitting in tears at the end, completely blown away by what we had just seen. One of the best evenings of my life!
Jennifer Warnes and Bill Medley - Time Of My Life
Who doesn't love Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing? This was the first time I fell in love! I can see the first time I saw him so clearly. I was at the cinema watching the trailers and this film was one of them. I was like, 'Hello, who is that?' I was hooked! I wore the video out I watched it that many times! Every time I hear this song I think of him and remember how wonderful he was.
Gotan Project - Revancha Del Tango
This song always brings back lovely memories of being in Lake Garda, Italy. We had just been out for a meal and we heard some beautiful tango music. The music was coming from a little restaurant on a square and couples were getting up from their tables and doing the Argentine Tango, it was magical. They were all so good, it made me want to learn to dance!
The Lion King - Hakuna Matata
A fantastic, upbeat, happy song. My girls fell in love with this film when they were little, I remember the times me and my girls would sing the song at the top of our voices when it came on. We loved it!
Mcfly - Shine A Light
I can't do this post without a Mcfly song. They have a place in me and my girls' heart! We go to all their concerts, play their music and sing around the house all the time. We are the best fans.
Hope you enjoy the songs I love.
