Today’s word prompt is song.
Music is very close to my heart and has seen me through some difficult times.
The stuff I play is usually from the old musicals as they best suit my way of playing, but I occasionally get to grips with the more modern stuff.
They say every singer has ‘A Song’, and that brings to mind Robbie Williams ‘Angels’, Celine Dion’s ‘My heart will go on’ and Shirley Bassey’s ‘Goldfinger’. You can also include practically anything by Freddie Mercury and Queen, Adele knocks out some belters, and we mustn’t forget Abba and The Bee Gees.
There are certain songs I play for people I love, The Wind Beneath my Wings for my Mum, Everything I Own for my paternal grandfather, Danny Boy for my maternal grandad and I always think of Mum and Dad dancing to This is my Lovely Day.
My ‘song’, if I had to name one that applied specifically to me would be Music by John Miles, which peaked at Number 3 in the UK charts when it was released in 1976.
The words are true of my life, and the various styles of play throughout cover all aspects of music from strings and ballads to up tempo and heavy rock anthems.
