I Must Confess…the Soundtrack of my Life

Happy public holiday everyone! I know I’m pleased to have an extra day to get myself ready before I head back into the whirl of work and school. I have really enjoyed a slower pace over the last week of the school holidays.

I have to apologise for being so tardy in getting around to everyone’s posts last week. I normally try really hard to get there every Monday as I appreciate the time and effort you guys make in linking up – your support really is important to me.

However, I spent most of last week cultivating a new intimacy with my ensuite (a week-long bout of gastro – a WEEK people!) which just threw me for a six.

Combine that with the regular demands of the school holidays (i.e. endlessly bored children) and I really struggled to get back on track. So please accept my apologies for being a sub-standard host last week – I promise to make it up to you guys today!

This week’s I Must Confess prompt asks us to share the songs that best represent the soundtrack of our lives. I set a random number of 10 (being an old school CD length) but you can really share as many or as little as you like.

Music is a vital part of who I am. I studied music at school, learnt the piano and double bass in my younger years, sang in a choir and have spent many hours listening and dancing to my favourites in the car or around the house.

Music is really very important to me – I can’t imagine a life without it. The fact I post a music related post every Sunday is testament to this, I guess.

I also believe that a person’s musical preferences and tastes can tell you a bit more about them. That’s why I’m so interested to find out what music best represents YOU.

To kick things off, here’s a list of the soundtrack of my life. If you haven’t heard of some of them go on and check them out as they may just give you another view into my life…

Jamiroquai – Virtual Insanity (my favourite band and a song with a title that sums up my life perfectly!)

Lenny Kravitz – Thinking of You (poignantly beautiful – I want this played at my funeral)

The Brand New Heavies – Sometimes (a cool, smooth song, again with a title very relevant to me!)

Lisa Stansfield – Change (powerful – I certainly wouldn’t change a thing about my life)

Etta James – At Last (beautiful and amazingly romantic – my love story was definitely worth the wait)

New Radicals – You Get What You Give (a fun song featuring my new life mantra  🙂 )

Beyonce – Love on Top (celebrating life and love with some old school funk!)

Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger (yes, I do believe I have the moves like Jagger in the privacy of my own home…)

Robbie Williams & Kylie Minogue – Kids (lots of fun, danceable and hot – like me! 😉 )

Moloko – Sing It Back (life would not be half as sweet without music, singing and dance)

As you can see, I prefer danceable, upbeat and positive music, with some hauntingly beautiful tracks thrown in for good measure. I think my musical tastes complement my personality – naturally sunny but with a dark streak under the surface.

So, what about you. What does your soundtrack sound like? Or are you planning on making an entirely different confession of your own?

Link up and join in the fun…

  1. Link must not be on daylight savings time and I honestly have no idea what I’m doing up at 3am. Will pop back at a more reasonable hour to link up.

    Love your song choices by the way. Hope you have a much better week. We have one more week of school holidays, wish it was longer.

  3. I’m afraid I don’t know half of these songs – mainly because I am hopeless at remembering title and artist, I’d probably know them if I heard them! My songlist would include Michael Jackson “Don’t Blame it on the Boogie”, anything Abba, and to remind me of when the hubster and I were dating, Rick Astley and Richard Marx (embarrassing!)

    Gosh, it’s Monday, isn’t it? I was thinking it’s still an extension of Sunday.

    I love Brand New Heavies!

    I really struggled to come up with my soundtrack, so have confessed something else that’s been weighing on my mind and heart. I do love music though, anything from Sinatra to Beyonce to Eminem. Could never pick just 10 songs to describe my life soundtrack. x

    Hello Kirsty! I managed today to link up with I must confess. I love your choices of songs. My favorite from your list is Etta James, At Last. The kind of song you will never be tired to listen too.

    It’s been great reading peoples soundtracks, especially those that stir up a bit of memory for myself.

  8. Hi Kirstie,

    So nice to meet you! I found your link through my friend “Mystery Case’s” blog. I love the soundtrack theme and thought I’d share my Inspire Me Monday post (hope it’s okay) since I included one of the songs that is significant in my life!

    Hope you’ll join my party as well! It’s got crafts, recipes and all of those things jazz – but lots of writing and truth as well!

    Have a wonderful week!

    Love your songs. I would have put Moves like Jagger in mine as my kids love it!! I love Etta James what a talent.

  10. Hi K,

    You know, I would share the soundtrack of my life, but then that’s what my entire blog is about, so it kind of defeats the purpose.

    I love it Kirsty. Great tunes and I can see you in each of them. I must admit I do love a bit of Beyoncé for doin’ my thang in the privacy of my lounge room – clearly we are the world’s best* lounge room dancers.

    G. xx

    * No official stats, but it sounds kinda awesome like us!
