Five Songs To Live Your Life By

If you could just choose five songs to live your life by, what would they be?

Christine asked me this a while back and it's taken a lot of thinking but I think I've got it down to a final five now.  I'm a very lyrical person in all senses of the word and have ended up choosing these songs mainly for the lyrics, but as many of you know, I love music anyway and videos just enhance the whole experience.

So, in no particular order:


Kiki Dee - I Got The Music In Me

Ain't got no trouble in my life
No foolish dream to make me cry
I'm never frightened or worried
I know I'll always get by.
I heat up, I cool down
When something gets in my way I go round it
Don''t let life get me down
Gonna take it the way that I found it.

Christina Aguilera - The Voice Within

When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just trust the voice within
Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within

Queen - These Are The Days Of Our Lives

No use on sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids




- = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = -


Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush - Don't Give Up

Don't give up 'cos you have friends
Don't give up, you're not beaten yet
Don't give up I know you can make it good



- = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = - = -


Strawberry Switchblade - Since Yesterday

And as we sit here along
Looking for a reason to go on
It's so clear that all we have now
Are our thoughts of yesterday
