As I was driving to drop my son off at daycare yesterday before work I had my iPhone on shuffle and Pearl Jam’s version of Last Kiss came on, one of my all-time favourite songs. Now I Love the 1961 original By J. Frank Wilson but feel the 1999 Pearl Jam version is more passionate.
So this got me thinking about my all-time loved songs. So I sat in the car park before I took my son inside and scribed down the first Ten songs that jumped into mind. Now I love listening to music and if I really sat down with time to think I know I would come up with more like 200+ all-time favourites, but I thought I’d share this list as it was the first ten off the top of my head.
It wasn’t till I sat down to type this out I was horrified to realise that Stevie Wright’s Evie part one, two & three, AS WELL AS Deep Purple’s Sweet Child of Time were missing, two of what I would consider top top top of my list (My mother will be disappointed in me for forgetting them). But I’ll stick the rushed scribbled ten for this experiment – and I wonder what they say about me – Thoughts anyone??
