People often tell me my music taste is eclectic and I agree because I really do like a bit of everything! I love the shuffle setting on my ipod, you take it for granted but things have moved on a bit since my 1980's Walkman days when the best thing ever was the auto-rewind, and it is great to be surprised with a track from your collection you haven't heard for ages.
Having the kids means I spend more time listening to the theme tune from Balamory than my own tracks, so I have decided to start a blog series cataloguing my favourite tunes to re-awaken my music soul. There are songs which remind me of music my parents used to play when I was growing up, boy bands I loved as a teenager, club tunes I danced to in my twenties and everything in between. Here's the first 10 in no particular order - I hope you find some gems in there which will become your favourites too!
