My yearly ritual of posting twelve songs that have either defined or been the soundtrack to moments that have made my year has come around again. I have put some up with links to blog posts that are the reason they are up there so have a click on those underlined.
Thank you all for being such smashing readers, heres to another year of this!
Without further a do, here goes….
Had this in my head the whole time I was in Paris. Now it reminds me of my brief but brilliant trip to that wonderful city.
2. James Blake – Case of You
A Joni Mitchell cover that out of all of these songs I urge you to listen to as its quite simply beautiful. Reminds me of reading my book on Hampstead Heath in the bitter cold.
It still hurts to think about that run!
Listening to Tibetan music makes sure I never forget where my heart truly lies, back in India.
This was very much the soundtrack to choosing and preparing photographs for my first exhibition.
The official song for the BBC coverage of our Olympics.
7. Karima Francis – Wherever I go
A stunningly warm and emotive voice, saw her live at a music festival this summer. Well worth a listen!
Reminds me of the stupid amounts of train journeys I have taken this year!
Possibly the most cheerful song in the world! Never has failed to caffeinate my spirits.
A song that has kept me warm on many a long photography walk.
A song that has been on a constant loop on many occasions. I love it not only because it has coffee in the title but how it reminds me how lucky I am.
