This week I am welcoming the gorgeous Raimy of Readaraptor to share the music that has made an impact on her through her life:
Firstly I would like to thank Emma for asking me to share the Soundtrack to My Life! I hope you all enjoy it!
So the first song my on my soundtrack will obviously have to be number one when I was born. Although it’s pretty cringe-worthy this song is very well known and I don’t really mind it being my birth song!
I know I used to love proper 80’s music like Tiger Feet and stuff when I was little; yeah I was a strange kid! But the first bands I remember obsessing over were East 17 and Boyzone. I could never decide which one was my favourite back then and now I find it even harder to choose between the two but I think I’m going to have to pick East 17. I was gutted when Brian got done for drugs and then they split up in 1997.
When they split up though my attention soon turned to another boy band – 5ive! I loved Five; they were sooo cool and a bit rugged! In my opinion they got over-shadowed by Spice Girls big time.
Blink 182, Him, Ramstein, Incubus, and even Slipknot! Then just before I started college I found out about Funeral For A Friend. I was so used to good bands being from America that I couldn’t believe they were from a little town called Bridgend (lol this is where I am). I loved what they did with music, what they did with vocals… how they looked ;) haha. To date I have seen them live 14 times and meet nearly all of them more than once. They are lovely guys and so funny, they love to have a bit of banter whilst on stage and I love Matt’s voice, the Welsh accent is very sexy on him (and me lol)! This next song is easily THE most beautiful song I have ever heard being played acoustically live.
When I went to uni I lost track of things that I loved before I went. Music and books passed me by completely. I only heard stuff that played in the clubs when I was out. So these few years don’t really have a soundtrack.
That is until last year, when me and a few of my bestest friends went to Cardiff (YAY). It was awesome, I had such a laugh and it was blazing sunshine so we spent all of one of the days sunbathing on Barry Island beach! When we were in Cardiff something was said (I can’t remember what,) and all of a sudden we all started singing Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart. It was the soundtrack to my summer holiday and it has to go onto the soundtrack of my life. I loved that weekend, and I so want to move to Cardiff!
I’ve rambled on enough now… I shall leave you with what I think will be the soundtrack of this year for me. Obviously my love for Good Charlotte will never leave me and their new album this year really didn’t disappoint. I saw them live in February and this song was amazing, it’s by far my favourite from the new album because it’s so catchy and upbeat and sweet, kinda!
I would like to thank Raimy for that fantastic music guest post, it was wonderful to see the progression of her musical taste [ : D ]
