Anyone that knows me will attest to the fact that music plays an instrumental part in my life.  Music has always seemed to be in the background for many of those defining moments; painful moments and moments of utter joy and elation.

However, it wasn’t just the chart topping album or the single that got air-time on the radio.  No – some of the most memorable songs, tunes and melodies that I recall from my childhood, were those that heralded yet another opportunity for quality time in front of the television with my family.

I am sure that many of these were also firm favourites with you, but I thought I would just share the ones that are still indelibly printed on my memory.

How many take you back?  How many can you name after hearing nothing but the first opening bar?

Timeless…  This one makes me think of Friday nights – autumn nights:

Another favourite that I would look forward to each and every week:

This one always put a lump in my throat:

This one needs no introduction:

The original will always be the best:

Every little boys dream:

Saturday afternoons lying on the living room floor:

Midweek, midday (I must have been off school ill or something):

“When they met… It was murder”:

Who didn’t want a Grand Torino?

Midweek madness and laughs:

Legendary laughs that still split my sides to this day:

Darlene and Jackie were always my favourites (and there was only one Becky in my eyes):

What an intro!

Another horns section letting rip for midday drama:

And my absolute favourite… So beautiful, so simple, so pure:

No collection would be complete without:

I would love to here about the theme tunes that make up the backdrop of your childhood.  Which do you believe should have made my list?

Of all the questions I struggle to answer; all the queries that make me think.

I’d have to say I always labour to say “what are my most favourite things?”

I love music, books; get lost in great films – love ice-cream & cake and have a soft spot for sweet things.

However, when pushed for a choice of what I most treasure; of what above else I most deeply adore – I always find I get stuck for an answer; as I’ll chose something I love, then remember I love something a bit more.

So I’ve created this space, this page on my blog; not somewhere for me, no it’s for you to all hog. Like a friendly warm tavern, with log fires and beer. A place for discussion, with dark booths in the rear.

The sign posted outside reads “favourite Things”, so open the door here, and let the discussions begin.
