If you’re a regular viewer or reader of my blog you will know I’ve been redesigning, remodelling and renovating a house which is to become the Chez Huntley residence in a few weeks time. Whilst spending many hours on my own at the house doing the dogsbody work I have kept myself company with music courtesy of my Bose sound link mini.
I have actually found it very therapeutic listening to old tunes. It got me wondering if any of you have a particular song which is especially significant to you? I’d love to hear your stories so please feel free to comment below.
My tune of the moment is by Crosby, Stills & Nash…you’ve probably guessed it already if you know me! It’s called “Our House”. The lyrics say ‘our house is a very very very fine house, with two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard. Now everything is easy cause of you…’ And I just beam when I hear it. It makes me think of how lovely it will be to have our very own home at last with our two cats playing in the garden. Although we have been living there amidst the chaos it is still far from feeling like ‘home’. This tune keeps me motivated.
Another very special song for me is “Pal of my cradle days”. This is a very old song but it’s one which resonated with me as a 14 year old girl. It’s about the relationship between a parent and child from the child’s point of view. My mum still had the card which I wrote the lyrics into and dedicated to her!
My son is a singer and songwriter and, of course, his songs are favourites of mine. He won’t let me put them on here until he’s recorded his debut album (soon) but I can’t wait to share them with you!
Please get in touch and tell me about some of your faves!
Lots of love,
