It just sounds so naff to say “I love music” doesn’t it? Pretty much everyone will tell you that they have a connection with music and can tell you about tracks that are personal to them, taking them back to a time and a place in their lives. And whilst it is fair to say that I do really love music, it’s probably better to tell you that I love it because it has a great influence over me which transpires through what i’m wearing, the books i’m reading and the way I get on with my life.
I was recently reading the blog of one of my old journalism classmates, Bethan who shared 36 of her favourite song lyrics and I thought immediately that this was the perfect way to express an opinion on music. So that’s exactly what i’m doing today, sharing 23 of my favourite song lyrics of all time. A lot of these tracks aren’t my favourite songs of all time but simply have particular lines in them that really click for me.
Maybe through reading this, you’ll learn something about me from the list, my key take-aways are that Noel Gallagher’s songwriting most certainly hits a nerve… and I should have been 23 in the 1980s when the music matched the time!
