If you know me, you know that I love music.
I love the way it makes me feel. I love love the memories it brings to mind. In another life I would be a DJ or a producer. I’ve even got an impressive catalog of music stored on old hard drives and mp3 players.
That’s why whenever I’m encouraged to do a music challenge, I try and take it on. Tonight a friend shared a prompt online that made me think about the 25 songs that would serve as the soundtrack of my life.
Each of the following tracks holds a special meaning for me. They capture moods and periods of my life or are songs that I can’t help but sing EVERY time they come on.
A person’s musical choices reveal things about them so I hope you enjoy hearing a bit more of my story through me sharing my soundtrack.
