The Soundtrack to my Life…


As most of you will know, I’ve lived my life to music. I have a song for everything and I express myself best through music. It’s been such an important part of my life and I’ve never heard a quote so true as the one I have tattooed on my foot – “When Words Fail, Music Speaks”

For ages, I’ve been trying to find the time to put together a soundtrack for my life. I finally got going on it and decided to include the songs that remind the people in my life of me. I sent out a request for everyone to send me a song that makes you think of me and I got an awesome response. So many great memories came up.

Here’s what I’ve received so far…

  • (K)anker – Bouwer Bosch Feat. Jaco Van Der Merwe
  • She Always Gets What She WantsPrime Circle
  • Against All Odds – AKing
  • Stars Fall Down – The Parlotones
  • Rise Above This – Seether
  • Kids / Is This Love – Lakyn Heperi
  • Moments That Matter – Corbin Blue
  • Celebrate You – Corbin Blue
  • Bella’s LullabyCarter Burwell
  • I’m Not Ok (I Promise) – My Chemical Romance
  • Hear You MeJimmy Eat World
  • It’s Not Over – Daughtry
  • Bleed it Out – Linkin Park
  • Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol
  • SpringsteenEric Church
  • Crazy Gnarls Barkley
  • Miami Bitch
  • Everybody Hurts – REM
  • Walking On SunshineKatrina & The Waves
  • Free Falling – Tom Pretty
  • Vulnerable – Roxette
  • It’s My LifeBon Jovi
  • Perfect – Fairground Attraction
  • Flying Without Wings – Westlife
  • Mandy – Westlife
  • My World The Bee Gees

It’s so flattering to think that these amazing songs remind someone of me. I am so blessed. I thought I’d share these with you, if nothing else; it’s a list of some listening material.

Please feel free to add to this list. If you have another song that reminds you of me, send it on. If you have a story about a memory and a song to go with it, I’d love to hear it. I’d also love to hear your favourite memory of me or a time that we’ve spent together. There’s nothing more motivating than a fond memory.

One Day at a Time



One thought on “The Soundtrack to my Life…

  1. Hey Mands,
    Every time I hear “The Time (Dirty Bit)” by The Black Eyed Peas, I think of our nights at Jazztime Cafe and our Cosmo’s :)… It always reminds me of the good times we had.

    Keep strong, keep the faith and know that I am always there to listen.
