Old School Songs

Saturday, 6 April 2013

I like music as much as the next girl, but I love old music. By old music I don't mean I love doing a little ballroom to Frank Sinatra with my grandma, I mean the 2006/2007 music which is pretty much considered ancient now, but is so good. You know those moments when you're driving along and Kisstory comes on so you instantly turn the radio up and somehow sing every single word even though you haven't heard the song in a good six years? Well... I love those moments. You might even have a little stash of old school songs on a playlist on your iPod,  but if you've abandoned these songs then you should be ashamed (you're obviously not a true fan). It's okay, you can redeem yourselves. Get onto You Tube, sit back, relax, and bump and grind a little. PLEASE.

Last night I had an old school music session with my boyfriend, and it was amazing. There are so many songs that I used to love and used to know all the words to, and listening to them now takes me back to when I was about 13 or 14 in secondary school. How time flies. I look at myself now and realise how much everything has changed, music included. I love nothing more than a little bit of Neyo or Jo Jo and I am definitely going to hoard all of these songs on my iPhone. I love how music brings back memories, reminds you of people and helps create new memories.

I almost go into some kind of weird crazy trance when I listen to these old songs and just smile. I don't know whether it's because i realllllllyyy love the songs, but I'm guessing it's more to do with the fact that I've added new happy memories to the old ones, and I'm content with everything and everyone in my life. As silly as it sounds, you can apply lyrics to real life situations and they begin to mean something. I love songs that sum up a situation, I mean, sippin on coke and rum I'm like so what I'm drunk, it's the freakin weekend baby I'm about to have me some fun, who doesn't this apply to? You have no choice but to sing along.

Here's some links if you fancy indulging in some old classics like I did. What's your favourite old song?
