My first theme tune was Ocean Colour Scenes The Circle. I was 16 and had moved from Essex to Cambridgeshire and started 6th form and didn’t know anyone. Groups had already been formed and everyone knew each other. I found it difficult to fit in and make friends and this song helped me through that. It gave me confidence that one day I would be inside the circle.
I left 6th form and decided to start college where I made some great friends and started the beginning of my clubbing era. Dancing Queen by ABBA became my theme tune and I would listen to it when I got ready to go out. My friends would even sing it to me when it came on. Even when I hear it now it brings back great memories of dancing all night long.
Over the years my theme tune has changed a lot, sometimes they last years and sometimes just a few months. They find me, not the other way around. They have included; I Will Survive by Gloria Ganor, You Oughta Know by Alanis Morrisette, Not Ready to Make Nice by the Dixie Chicks and Grace Kelly by Mika. It’s clear to see I am a drama queen!
My latest theme tune is Dance Without Sleeping with Melissa Etheridge; actually it speaks to me so much I have named my blog after it. I suffer with depression and insomnia and no matter how bad I am feeling or tired I am I can always listen to music and have a little dance. Music is my therapy and helps soothe my soul.
What’s your theme tune?
