Living with music


Music has always been a massive part of my life. I have never known it not to be. I am not a musician or a singer, even though I have had lessons, but I wouldn’t give Adele a run for her money, in fact I don’t think my voice could ever be any where close to hers, but I do love my music.

As a child I would spend hours listening to my records, which was the way in the early 80’s to listen to music. Then came cassette tapes and CD’s. I especially loved Christmas I was always guaranteed a new cassette or record.

I didn’t buy my first CD until later on as I reached adult age.

I still listened to my walkman, which was a portable device that worked on AA batteries and it would play cassette tapes. I loved my walkman and continued to use it all the way up until I left school, until I received a CD and got a portable CD player for Christmas.

I then started to fade away from listening to my tapes to the point that I no longer at the age of 38 owned a cassette tape anymore, I haven’t even bought a CD in the last 10 or so years. If I want to listen to music I play it via YouTube, or Google music app.

However I still keep my CD’s and will sometimes play one using my laptop whilst working in my home office/guest bedroom.

To me music is more than a tune it is what is represents in your life. As soon as I hear for example A-HA Take On Me, it instantly takes me back to my childhood when I used to live in Hammersmith, or when I listen to Alexander O’Neal Fake it makes me remember those great holidays my mum and dad used to take me and my brother on, to Menorca with some of my mum and dads friends from Chelsea, in London.
