Songs to get me in the mood
These are songs that mean something, or I associate a memory, or can just play over and over again.
Music has always played a huge part in my life, and most of the men I've been involved with at some time or other have loved music and introduced me to different artists. The result is, is that I have a very eclectic taste in music, and hang onto songs because of the memories associated with them. I can let the man go and get shot of him, but man the song, I just have to hang onto.
In compiling my top all time 25 favourite songs, I found this almost an impossible task. As I thought yes, oh my God the memory, have to include that, I immediately thought of a few others I could have included. This does probably mean a follow up list at some point, you realise that, don't you! Anyway, when faced with a difficult choice, I chose the rarer song so as to educate you music lovers out there who might not have heard of some of these songs before.
Sometimes life in China can be quite a challenge. It was quite difficult getting the youtube links as it's still blocked here in China for some random reason or other. I did check all the links on proxyboxonline and they all played okay, but I've just linked the songs to the youtube links without going through proxyboxonline. Hope they work. Just click on the song title and youtube should open up. (in theory). I hope you have as much fun listening to the songs as I had reliving my old memories.
