I wrote the themes and even I am finding this difficult to choose!
Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley.
This was probably my first crush on a popstar, I LOVED Rick Astley, there used to be a guy in my high school that looked exactly like him, I would put his songs on and dance around my bedroom, it’s strange that since the whole Rick rolling thing, all of my children now happily sing along to it too.
2. I Owe You Nothing – Bros
They were obviously the first band I went to see live and I still love this song!
3. Pray – Take That
I thought about all of the Take That songs, on my various albums over the years, and this is probably my favourite, and has nothing to do with them half naked in the video!
4. Sit Down – James
Turning the tempo down a bit, but I just love this song too!
5. Stop – Spice Girls
I know, the Spice Girls, but this song always makes me remember when I was pregnant with Xene, as it was played constantly she would go crazy in my belly when it was on the radio
6. Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters
When I first met Asa he gave me a rendition of Under The Boardwalk with two of his friends doing the backing vocals, this song was also sang by my dad when he was in a band in the sixties, he used to play all of his tapes in the car journeys to school each day!
7. Take On me – Aha
I loved this song and the video even more, it was so ahead of its time.
8. I gotta feeling – Black eyed peas
When the children were smaller this was their favourite song EVER! Every time one of them was grumpy or trying to fall asleep, I would put this on in the car and would immediately be met with big smiles and crazy dancing in their car seats!
9. Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers
Not just because it was in one of my favourite films Ghost, but my dad would sing this all the time when I was little.
10. Love In The First degree – bananarama
This was the very first record I bought with my own pocket money and also the song I did my first Disco Dance exam to.
These are only the tip of the iceberg, I love Bon Jovi, Guns n Roses, Wham, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, all the cheesy 80s pop, i’m partial to a bit of Madonna or Whitney, there really are too many to choose from.
