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:Â Rhythm Is A Dancer – Original 12″Â by SNAP!
- Gets you dancing:Â Love StoryÂ by Layo & Bushwacka
- Takes you back:Â One Way or AnotherÂ by Blondie
- Perfect love song: Stand By MeÂ by Ben E. King
- Funeral song: Hallelujah Jeff Buckley
- The encore:Â HaylingÂ by FC Kahuna
