The Guardian has just launched Six Songs of Me (update Oct 28 2018 – sadly now defunct), a way to create the ‘record of your life’ and promote editorial around its music coverage over the summer.
Here are mine:
- First song I bought: Rhythm Is A Dancer – Original 12″ by SNAP!
- Gets you dancing: Love Story by Layo & Bushwacka
- Takes you back: One Way or Another by Blondie
- Perfect love song: Stand By Me by Ben E. King
- Funeral song: Hallelujah Jeff Buckley
- The encore: Hayling by FC Kahuna
