My music taste is all over the place! I love music that is really “soundy”, where you put headphones on and totally immerse yourself in a different universe. I do have some very strange stuff in my music collection.
The first one on my soundtrack is exactly this, it’s Retrogade by James Blake. It’s very soundy, and I think it’s totally stunning.
My husband and I are also huge Keane fans. We have been to many many concerts, even noodle has been to one, in my tummy 🙂 There are so many songs that I love but one that sticks out. It’s always the last song of their show and huge flood lights pointed at their fans fill the concert venue. This song always takes me back to this moment and it was the song I walked down the isle to (in an instrumental version). It’s of course Bedshaped by Keane.
Staying with the wedding theme and the complete randomness of my musical taste, it’s our first dance. It was a total spur of the moment decision when I was listening to the radio one day. The words resonate so much with how we met and it’s totally perfect. We found a beautiful slowed down version of it on YouTube for our actual dance but everytime I hear this song, I literally well up inside. It means so so much. It is Diamonds by Rihanna.
Another favourite song on my Saturday soundtrack would have to be something by Christina Aguilera. She is such an inspiration with a huge voice, one she had already aged 10! The song I literally cannot hold still to is Dirty by Christina Aguilera. It reminds me of clubbing days with a very good friend. Oh, those were the days!
The final track was really hard to pick. Usually the whole album plays. Noodle LOVES the album too and asks me to put it on in the car. It’s still permanently in my car CD player even though the album was published in the autumn of 2013 and everyone is eagerly waiting for another…. It’s Hey Now by London Grammar. Her voice is stunning and the whole album is beautifully haunting. Big, big love.
