Songs that make me

AKA story of my life in songs

My mum used to sing this to me when I was baby, then when I heard it again when I was like 9 or 10 or whatever it sounded really familiar and so obviously that was why. I tried singing it to my son when he was baby too but I have such a bad singing voice I probably traumatized him for life instead!

We used to sing this song at christian camp! Over and over and over again. We sang it to the boys and changed the words so that it was about them. I don't think they were too impressed.

I just used to love this song - Its like the only song I know all the words to. (How ironic!)

This reminds me of being 14/15. I think I snogged my first boyfriend to this song in my garage.

Ok, this is the song I got married to. I didn't care who was I was marrying. In my head I was Charlene Robinson!

My ex was like really into heavy metal so when I left part of my rebelious phase was to go out to clubs he'd hate and dance to music he'd hate. This was my personal fave.

I've only been dumped once in my life. We'd been going out for about 5 months. I didn't even like him that much at the time but I found being dumped pretty difficult and I was kinda intense! I listened to this song a lot as I wallowed in self pity!

I love this song cos it reminds me of a time when my son was a baby and his breath smelled of milk! When my brother was in hospital last year I'd make him sing this with me every time I visited him and I'd pretend we were gonna audition for the X-factor! We never did make X-factor but a while ago my brother had to give video evidence for the police - It's a long story but basically at one point they had to go out the room but they left the camera rolling so we did our X-factor piece - y'know just in case they wanted to send it on. One day it'll turn up on You've Been Framed or something....


  1. just 'bigged up' your site here
    sorry for the crap lingo, the music has made me revert to the 90's

  2. Oh Brilliant - I added your blog to the 'young mum stories' page - hope you don't mind me saying that you admit to being a 'bit posh'! I'm only jealous! 90's rock!

  3. On the theme of "themes" my two favourites are the words to the opening credits of The Golden Girls and Cheers - great words, great songs :)
