It's not often that someone drops a reference to climbing Kilimanjaro in their Soundtrack To My Life story so when I read Carly's first song choice, we agreed to use the photo video from her trip - it's very emotional (AND she's been to Everest Base Camp recently too). The usual links will be at the end of the post (her blog header is absolutely perfect) but, for now, it's over to Carly...
After I did Kilimanjaro in 2011, the song was used in a YouTube video highlighting the trip. It gives me goosebumps and takes me right back to the mountain every time I hear it. It also makes me want to go back and climb it all over again.
Just an awesome gig at Reading Festival this year, being stuck between 2 mosh pits and just letting yourself go with the flow... literally!
I’m constantly told that I show no emotions, I keep it all hidden away. Whenever people say that, I always think of this song.
This is my boy's favourite song. They do a hilarious dance to it and always puts a smile on my face if I’m feeling low.
This song was quite pivotal during my teenage years at school. I was going through the normal motions of being a teenager and this song kind of sums up certain parts of those years.
