Imagine that we have a new sparkly GN of charge, what records to choose and why? Do you just love a certain old record or does it bring back lovely memories?tchsmile

My first disc is The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel, reminds me of DH proposing to me.😍

All the records in the charts in 1969, best year ever for music! I was 14. ☺️

It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas 🎄 Not sure who sang it but I love it!

Annie’s song by John Denver……reminds me of a very happy time with future DH

Oh I though it was Christmas songs. In that case I'll have 'Which Way you Goin' Billy?' by the Poppy Family.

Some great records already dancing around the jukebox.

Bad Moon Rising is my next choice ( Credence Clearwater Revival?)

At this time of the year it has to be Chris Rea " Driving home for Christmas ".

I'd alighted a flight from Oz at Manchester airport at 7am on Christmas Eve after leaving another Christmas Eve behind and the roads here were ice-packed and there was thick snow either side of the motorways. The taxi was playing this music which really set the scene as I was loaded with gifts and I can always picture this time when I hear it playing.

Forsythia Fri 10-Dec-21 20:12:22

My next ones are anything lively by the Stones, get that party started!

MissAdventure Fri 10-Dec-21 20:14:14

Satisfaction - The rolling stones.

All right now - Free.

Shiny happy people - REM.

lemongrove Fri 10-Dec-21 20:19:08

I didn’t realise that one was by REM MissA no wonder I like it.
Am tired with dancing now ( unlike when I was 18) and need to sit at a table with a Baileys and put Night Swimming, also by REM on.Melancholy and lovely.

GrannyGravy13 Fri 10-Dec-21 20:20:31

Oh my lemon I love bad moon rising.

MissA I saw Free live many moons ago…
