Browsing Bloglovin’ last night , I came across a post by Life in a Breakdown about a mixtape Direct Line are doing in conjunction with Spotify based on specific dates that mean something to you.
Well, I had to try it, I knew Kajagoogoo had been no 1 when I was born but other dates I had no idea and the results were well …erm… interesting to say the least.
Day I was born
Too Shy – Kajagoogoo
Ah, 80’s sing a long at its
crappiest best . Of course , being an 80’s child I have a secret love/fondness but excruciating embarrassment for the music of the time. Less said, the better about this one.
No limit – 2 unlimited
No, no, no , no, no, no
No,no, no, no
No, no there’s no lyrics
We used to sing to this one …..
Ugh this was no 1 for weeks and everywhere back in the day . My sisters boyfriend used to play in loudly in his bright red peaugot 205 whilst wearing a blue tank vest …… no , just, no
All the things she said – T.a.t.u
Oh my God! The uproar this song caused due to its video – faux lesbianism , school girl fantasy vibe – probably the only reason the song ever made no 1! Not a favourite
My daughter was born
Like toy soldiers – Eminem
I absolutely adore Eminem, and I have done since he first appeared in 1998 so I’m glad he’s showed up in this mix . Not one of my favourites but as ever , clever lyrics over a good beat. What more could you want ?
My son was born
Closer – ne yo
Probably the least song I’m familiar with here , totally not my thing at all .
30 years old
Thrift shop- Macklemore and Lewis
I’m gonna pop some tags only got $20 in my pocket
Love love love this song and the video is hilarious , also was at a time when I would literally spend all my money in charity shops on vintage goods
Lee and Mine s 10th Anniversary
Happy – Pharrell
Seriously, how can you not love this song ?! Or Pharrell? !
So there you have it , the official soundtrack to my life – quite an odd mix there but great fun to compile. Try it out for yourself and see what songs you get 😉
