Write a letter to a band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days.
To be honest, there is no one band that comes to mind, but music fuels my soul. It always has. My mom tells a story of how I would stand in my nappy front of the HiFi, with my knees bent, waiting through the long ass intro to Neil Diamond’s Hot August Night LP, and when the drums started I’d bop up and down for aaaages in time to the music.
I love dancing and I love music.
I work so much better when there’s music playing, and I often catch my son or my Glugster grinning at me because I’ve been boogying around my kitchen without realising it! I even dance in the car!
While my tastes are wide and almost all encompassing, and contemporary music is awesome, I always return to Rock. AC/DC, Guns ‘n Roses, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Bullet For My Valentine, My Chemical Romance, The Darkness, P!nk…
When the fancy takes me, I love big band music!
I can sing along to just about everything on the radio and I can learn the lyrics to a song in minutes. And I don’t forget them either.
And I had to edit this to pay tribute to my all time favourite song, a song that cheers me up and makes me dance every single time I hear it- James Brown’s I Feel Good!!!
