Princess and the Playlist - Week 2

For this week's playlist I decided to touch upon some songs that remind me of certain events or periods in my life, I have picked 10 songs, I am going to explain each memory as clearly and concisely as I can.

Please let me know what you think, I am also looking for people who might line to do a memory lane playlist to feature on the blog so let me know if you want to take part you can comment, email or tweet!

Breakfast At Tiffany's - Deep Blue Something - The first record I brought with my own money, this isn't my first ever record, I cant remember what that was, I have always had music in my life. I think this is a pretty cool first record, at the time I liked it because it was bouncy, crazy and fun, as the years go on though I realise it is still this! LOVE IT!

Every You Every Me - Placebo - This was one of the first Placebo tracks I heard, I used to listen to it on repeat, I was in school and being bullied, this was a time which I really discovered music could have meaning, it wasn't all bubbly and fun, there were songs with depth and real feeling in them...I was at that point in my life, what you might class as an emo I guess, I never really have put my music tastes in a box though.

Drops of Jupiter - Train - this song has been in my life for as long as I can remember, when I'm feeling a bit down this song makes me feel so much better, it has seen me through a lot of break ups and heart aches. It is my all time sing along song, yes I am a little bit county. I also am a sucker for a string section.

Shimmy Shimmy Quater Turn - Hellogoodbye - This song reminds me of my first love, I was 21 and Naive (we have all been there!) and thought it was so cute that he used to sing this to me, that was one of the reasons I fell in love with him, he stole my heart some CD's and £30...Bastard, still love this fippin song though!

To Build A Home - The Cinematic Orcestra - This reminds me of many things, this song can make me glow inside or cry, it depends on my mood. One memory of this song was when I went to see them live I was in the seated section of a small theater and my then boyfriend grabbed my hand and held it tight, I think it was then that I realised I found my second love...It didn't last...What I will say is this song is a slow one but you have to listen to it all the way through, at 4 mins it really ramps up.

Naive - The Kooks - This one makes me laugh because it reminds me of when we had a power cut a few years back and I had my old Samsung phone with this as my ring tone, I kept playing it and singing along to annoy my Mum...She loved it really!

Golden Phone - Micachu - This reminds me of Southampton, Burlington Road to be exact. Burlington was amazing, I used to go to the most amazing parties at that house until 7 in the morning, we even had a festival in the back garden...That was a very messy affair!

Drive - Incubus - This reminds me of the summer 2009 driving around with my good friend (who shall remain nameless) we had lots of fun...I was a little scared but enjoyed every minute of it...We still fancy each other...

Middle Of The Hill - Josh Pyke - My first trip alone...Byron Bay, Australia January 2010 this taught me a lot and I met some great people, reminds me of sitting up late at night drinking beer & catching frogs!

Sweet Dispostion - Temper Trap - This is, and always will be a festival song...I love a good music festival and this song just makes me remember all those moments jumping up and down singing at the top of my lungs with those I love and some crazy dudes I met at the beer tent.
