"Slam it to the left, if youre having a good time..."

I apologize for being a little out of sync with my posts this past week, I have been slightly distracted as my husband has been sick and I'm starting to feel a tad worse for wear too. However, as it is a honey and lemon hot tea and cuddled up under blankets kind of day, I thought I better prop myself up and do some blogging! :p

I had been searching for some new post ideas recently and really enjoyed writing the "50 facts about me" post and reading all your comments and fun facts too. Then on Twitter (@LucyOsterfeld) I was told a concept that I thought would be really fun do by follower Matt Thorpe, he always has some very cool ideas, so I set about thinking and making notes about his suggestion. Which was:

Remembering Key moments in your life with songs!

Immediately I was able to think of a few straight off the bat, wedding day etc but then I started to smile as more songs came to mind, so let's just get stuck in. :)

* They are in no particular order, I'm just writing them when they come to mind!!

S Club 7- Bring it all back.
From day one of our wrestling careers, this was mine and Kelly's song. People would always ask us why we chose it, as it is extremely poppy and just very young sounding, at first I'm pretty sure it was simply because we loved S Club 7 growing up and had had plenty of time practicing what it would be like for an entrance. It had the perfect jump out through the curtain beat. However, later on in our career when people would ask, our answer changed to: 'the lyrics suit what we are about to a T. It represents what we wish to represent and that's why it stuck' :) "Don't stop, never give up, hold your head high and reach the top, let the world see what you have got, bring it all back to you."

Del Shannon- Runaway.
This song we heard so much growing up along with the rest of the American Graffiti soundtrack. This is the kind of music my sisters and I love and will spend hours dancing too. When I hear this song it takes me back, more specific, to a trip Kelly and I took with our Dad to 'The Grand Daddy of them all. The Power Big Meet' in Sweden. We made this trip two years in a row, driving the Cadillac all the way to Vasteras Sweden for the worlds largest classic car show. We used to drive around cruising in the car listening to all the classics and this was one of our favourites! :)

Ray LaMontagne- Hold you in my arms.
This was the song that Chris and the groomsmen walked out to at our wedding and that just makes me love it even more. It takes me back to beautiful St Pete beach and I smile from ear to ear.

Tangled- At last I see the light.
My wedding theme song! :p I walked down the beach to this and it was simply perfect. I adore the song and now it has even more of a special meaning. That and when we walked back up the isle after getting married I whispered something to Chris about having had Zachary Levi sing at our wedding! :p (I know I know...obsessed!! But it was the best.)

Massimo Ranieri  - Rose Rosse
This Italian song transports me back to my Nanna and Grandad's house and it is one of my ultimate favourite songs ever. It was a staple through childhood and to this day and I love bursting out in to sing a longs with my sisters and Nanna and Grandad.

Smokie - Living Next Door to Alice.
This song simply makes me happy. It screams Sunday afternoon in our house back home in the UK. Any holiday or family meal while we are helping Mum cook, this song will play at least twice while we all sing it at the top of our lungs! :)

Duran Duran - Hungry like the wolf.
I simply can't listen to this song without thinking about my Grandad as he always calls my brothers and sisters and I 'Hungry like a wolf' every time we have lunch or dinner with them! That's all, it makes me smile! :)

Temptations - Just my imagination (running away with me)
Now it was incredibly difficult to pick just one Motown song as honestly this type of music was all we heard growing up, blasting from Dad's garage, in Dad's car, these were his favourites. Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Four Tops, Supremes, Stevie Wonder, the Jackson Five, just to name a few were people we could listen to over and over again. One of the reasons these songs are special is because I remember we used to always listen to them in the car when we went to visit our Nanna Knott! :) <3

Good Charlotte - The Anthem
Played every single morning before high school...enough said. :p

Blazin Squad - See you at the crossroads.
Ok, I just had to mention this because it makes me laugh now looking back at all the music I have been through and what was around when I was a teenager, oh the days!! :p We did actually really like Blazin Squad for a minute and I know if I were to listen to that song again, it would take me back! :p

Five - Any song!!
I can't pick just one song with Five as it takes me back to primary school and school dances. The boys used to sing and dance to them while we danced to S club 7. :)

O-Town - All or Nothing.
This would have to be our introduction to the American boy band kind of phase. We loved O-Town and even now when this song comes on you can bet my sisters and I all have verses and sing to our hearts content.

S club Juniors - Automatic High
I have no excuse for this one. I just remember loving the song...we were teenagers by this point too. What can I say? We lived very sheltered lives growing up! :p

Ray LaMontagne & Damien Rice - The way I love you.
This song just reminds me of happy times when everything sort of comes together and works out the way it supposed to. I listened to it a lot when I was away from Chris.

Spice Girls - Wannabe.
The list just wouldn't be the same without a bit of the Spice Girls and I sure as anything spent many of my childhood years dancing along to their songs and making up dances while watching Spice World the movie! :p

I think this is more a less a list of songs that just take me back. Some not necessarily key moments in my life but just songs that spring to mind that when I listen to transport me to a certain time and place. I hope you enjoy the list, I think I could actually go on and write tons more but I'm going to leave it at that for today! :)

Please share your memories and favourite songs in the comments below as I would love to read about them!

Have a wonderful day!

Love Lulu xx
