My Life In Music

Put together a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails. 

I was born in autumn of 1963:

I went to school and had lots of boyfriends.  Some of my relationships lasted as long as a week:

I emigrated with my family to South Africa:

I met the Hub:

We had children:

I returned to the UK with my latest family:

My hope for the future:

    What a lovely collection. May the last one come true, bestseller in record time

      I totally agree and couldn’t put it better.

    Great idea and choice of music – must try and see what I can come up with for my own life! Sally

    Now I’ll be hearing ‘Paperback Writer” in my head all day.

    I love this! I may have to steal it some time.

    Very cleverly done – and some excellent memories. I must sit and have a think about mine.

      Not funny? 😦


      • Forever Bound Art January 30, 2013 at 23:09 #

        nothing wrong with being adorably funny Tilly 🙂

          Then another *blush* at the thought that I’m too presumptuous and you’re talking about someone else.

          A third *blush* because I’m afraid I’ve now put you on the spot and embarrassed you.

          *Blush* again because I’m overwhelmed with my three faux pas.

          *Faints* due to lack of blood to any part of the body that isn’t the head.

    This is just fabulous! I love the story of your life and I love the musical accompaniment! What a great way to think of the decades and changes in one’s life. I love all the songs you’ve chosen, but I’m an Earth Wind & Fire “groupie.” I follow them around when they are performing in SoCal…hahaha!

    Love this, Tilly. I think many people would like to escape from SA at the moment. Good luck with the ‘Paper back writer’. 🙂

    You had to go and do it, Tilly!
    Of course I had to play Two Little Boys! And I’ll now be singing it for the rest of the week!

    Great collection!


  15. Karen Snyder January 30, 2013 at 00:28 #

    What fun! Think I’d like to try this, but my list would be much longer; many more years to cover. 🙂

    Heeheeheeheehee! 😎

    Brilliant idea … to do your life in music … why didn’t I come up with that one *smile
    Dolly and Beatles would been … on my list too, but different tracks. Really enjoyed this post. Great thinking, Batman.

    […] I stole this idea from The Laughing Housewife, whose version you can see here. […]


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
