My Top 10 songs that mean something to me

Beautiful day - U2 - O.K This one because after my baptism of fire on a canal boat holiday. One of the last days we had was a lovely sunny autumnal day and it came on the radio while Lucy and I were steering the boat and we started to boogie on down on the back of the boat in the middle of the country side as we travelled along. Also I played this a lot during a canal boat holiday I took with Sharon. We had a lovely Indian summer for that holiday and it was one of the best holidays I have ever had.

Insomniac - Faithless - Late night/Early Morning boogying in a Turkish Disco. This song ALWAY makes me want to go WEY HEY!!!! (And if it is on the CD player while I am driving I tend to put my foot down. Tsk tsk)

Blue Sky - Groove Armada - Nice mellow tune for a nice mellow mood

Down in the Park - Gary Numan - Gary coming out on stage in his little electric car, surrounded by dry ice and lights just floating around the stage.

Don't you forget about me - Simple Minds - Park Dancing in Norway, Norwegian holidays and Norwegian men!

Oh God - Annie Lennox - The words kind of sum me up. It has the ability to bring a tear to my eye.

Come to me - Bjork - Lying on a boat in Turkey, hot sun, blue skys and crystal clear blue water.

Climbatize - Prodigy - Love the build up in this one. It makes me want to jump all over the living room. (Another tune that encourages me to go over the legal speed limit!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaMAmvv6FME

Ordinary World - Duran Duran - No particular reason for this. I like the words and I like the way they use it in Layercake. Although I am not a particularly violent person, the contrast to the song and the action make interesting viewing.

Angel Face - Glitterband - Oh I will always remember this song. Traipsing around the streets on hot summer days in the 70's from record shop to record shop trying to buy it and eventually discovering that it wasn't going to be released for another week! Then seeing Gerry Shephard on TOTP without Gary Glitter getting in the way!! God rest his soul!

I could actually go on to name loads more. Time to tag someone. Let me see.................................
