My Music – A journey into the past.

Many of you will know that I am very old-fashioned and that is no more true than in my taste in music.

I love music, I passionately believe that it has such a valuable influence over our body and health and nothing can change a mood better than music.

However, if you mentioned to me a Music artist that has only been around in the last 10 years, chances are I wouldn’t have heard of him/her/them.

I can count on one hand the number of current songs I have heard on the radio that I have liked. The most recent one I can recall Is Pharrell Williams song ‘HAPPY’ I liked that.

I’ve just looked that up, and the most contemporary song I could think of was a hit in 2014, so already 4 years old.

I do own an I-pod, it is one of those smaller ones, a Nano. It is the same colour as my friends teenage daughter and we always used to joke about the shock she’d have if she picked up mine by mistake. Although despite all the rubbish she likes, she still loves Elvis, so Kudos there.

I thought I would share with you my ten most played popular music tracks (I’ve cut out the Classical stuff).

In reverse order:

At Number 10, we have:

Unforgettable by Nat King Cole


Number 9:

9 to 5 by Dolly Parton


Number 8:

Feeling Good by Nina Simone


Number 7:

Dream a little dream of me by Mama Cass Elliot


Number 6:

Annie’s Song by John Denver


Number 5:

Your Song by Elton John


Number 4:

Let your Love Flow by The Bellamy Brothers


Number 3:

Crazy by Patsy Cline


And in Second place,

we have

We’ve only just begun by the Carpenters.


And Finally,


In first place,


the most listened to Pop track on my I-pod is:


True Love Ways by Buddy Holly



So, I told you I was old fashioned. I wonder what else these songs say about me………?

Well I hope you like this post.

Let me know which of these you liked, which Golden oldies you like that weren’t on my list.

Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below.

  1. I love Dolly Parton. Growing up my dad would always make mixed tapes of songs from when he was growing up. I grew to really like that music (although I liked the current stuff too). My grandfather loved old country – Merle, Dolly, Kenny Rogers, Cash, Waylon. SO needless to say, I grew up on a wide variety of music and to this day have a wide range of tastes. These are all great songs on your list!
