I am starting with my last year in high school, we are talking early 90s. Perhaps it was the era of bad music, or perhaps it was just what I was listening to on commercial radio.
One of my favourites to dance to once I smuggled myself in as an underager at nightclubs was Life is a Highway - it's pretty bad. I wouldn't listen to it. Daggy was clearly my thing, I also remember loving Peter Andre more than life itself.
Fast forward a few years and Mr H played this for me on the guitar to win me over. It worked.
If I think of my Dad, there are songs played over and over from the 70s when we had tape decks and when there were dinner parties (ALL THE TIME) this tape was played over and over. While we were tucked up in our beds, awoken by grown ups laughing and having a good time, we never thought to come out and speak to them, we were so obedient and it was Sam Cooke who would sing us back to sleep.
Sam Cooke has a voice you can easily listen to any time, any day, any era.
Song four - I wrote all about another time - it's The Dance by Garth Brooks.
While song five got its own post last year too, the song you need when you want a secret weapon up your sleeve.
What songs bring back memories for you? Daggy songs can be embraced!
