- Songs from your childhood
You are my sunshine by Jimmie Davis (the old folk in my family were enthusiastic singers)
Come on Eileen was another from when I was maybe six or seven and Tom that lived down the road’s husky voiced older cousin kissed me and told me I looked like Shakin’ Stevens.. I only met her the once but she was my first love..Posted 4 years agonbtMember
My dad used to sing this to me when I was a toddler
My Aunt passed away a couple of years ago and while reminiscing at the wake afterwards, my dad started to sing it and I very nearly burst into tears there and then. Getting a lump in the throat nowPosted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
There were lots of songs on Junior Choice, etc., that I remember, but probably the first song that I can clearly recall as my earliest is this one:Posted 4 years ago
I was probably three, four or five, at a guess.
I was really chuffed to find a download of it, so now I have it to play whenever I want.deadlydarcyMember
I had the Jungle Book album as a child and listened to Bear Necessities over and over and over and over and over.
Other than that, my dad loved Glen Campbell and the two songs I remember from whatever album he had of his were Rhinestone Cowboy and Galveston. I heard Rhinestone Cowboy the other day for the first time in years – still know it off by heart. 😳 And some years ago, I found myself in Houston for thanksgiving so went to visit Galveston – had a walk on the beach and a little cry. It was a bit of a shithole of a town but it was a special moment.Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
Cilla Black – Sing a Rainbow. God it may not even have been her, but in my memory it was!
Dave Dee, Dozy Beacky Mick & Titch – Zanadu. We used to like the whip noise!
My Dad had some great records, one of which I was reminded of recently and is awesome:Posted 4 years ago
