5 Songs That Mean A Lot To Me #2 – Throwback Thursday #4

Originally Published 30th July 2015


A few weeks… wait… months ago I started a Throwback Thursday series on my blog, then for whatever reason I stopped doing Throwback posts.


I’ve been getting a lot of messages from people wanting me to continue explaining more about the songs in my Songs That Mean Stuff playlist.

If you didn’t see the first post about Songs That Mean Stuff to me then click here and read that first, everything else will make so much more sense then.

I’m going to put the playlist here so that you can listen to it as you read the rest of this post in which I’ll explain the reasons why 5 more songs from this playlist mean so much to me!

For those interested the songs are picked at random by using ‘Shuffle Play’.

  1. The Pogues – Sally MacLennane – This song reminds me of my Dad, we were hanging out listening to music and this song came on and he got up and just started dancing, it was the funniest thing. I don’t blame him, this is just one of those songs you can’t sit still whilst listening to.
  2. Evelyn Knight – A Little Bird Told Me – This song reminds me of my Grandad on my Mum’s side. We’ve danced to this song at a few family parties now and it’s just a lovely happy song!
  3. George Jones – If Drinkin’ Don’t Kill Me (Her Memory Will) – I once sang this with a street busker after a night out in Liverpool and every time I hear this song I smile and remember that one time vodka thought I could sing.
  4. Fall Out Boy – Dance, Dance – it’s been TEN years since this song was released and I can still do the dance and I’m not sorry about this. I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve done the dance in public and embarrassed my friends. Secretly I think they’re just jealous 😉

5.  Above & Beyond – Thing Called Love (radio edit) – I have loved this song ever since I first heard it, the lyrics are beautiful and it’s just a generally great song. The reason it’s in this list though is because when they played it at ABGT100 in New York last October it was INCREDIBLE, hearing the whole of Madison Square Garden singing along was just such an amazing moment, one I’ll never forget!
