First date number 10 - Playlist of our life

We took a trip down memory lane last night. While eating a very healthy snack (carrots and caramelised onion houmous and coke - get us, a dry date!) we took it in turns to chose a song to listen to that would make up the ultimate compilation tape of our life. The result was:

Me: The Cardigans - Erase/Rewind. This reminds me of our honeymoon driving through the Mojave Desert in a car with no engine coolant.
He: red hot chili peppers - californication. The song of the next holiday driving in a convertible car down the Atlantic Highway
Me: Portishead - Glorybox. The song of being loved up.
He: Tim Deluxe - It won't do. The loved up song from when we thought that Patrick might be a good idea
Me: Van Morrison - Brown eyed girl. This is Anya's song
He: Anya Marina - Clean and sober. No - this is Anya's song
Me: Jack Johnson - Better together. This song made me go very mushy just after Patrick was born - so I think of it as his song.
He: Corinne Bailey Rae - Just Like a star. Good times in the new garden at Hixon
Me: Bellowhead - London Town. The kids first festival Cambridge 2009 - driving home in pink skies.
He: The She - Tom Pains Bones. First band seen at Cambridge
Me: Stevie Wonder - Living for the city. The song I wouldn't have liked unless I met him (ironically he doesn't really like it!)
He: Elastica - Vaseline. Punky Christof
Me: Pulp - Common people. Vodka dancing at the union
He: Foo fighters - Learning to fly. Our first house/ Commonside Close song
Me: Paolo Nutini - Pencil full of lead. Dancing around the kitchen song
He: Blind Melon - No rain. The one song he brought to the relationship which I liked!
Joint last one! Alison Krauss - You're the lucky one. We realised that Euan didn't have a 'his song' - This is it xo

I know this is a mamoth playlist but we love our music and could have gone on for hours.  Hope someone out there in cyberspace finds a song, new to them, to weave into their life.

  1. love the idea of creating a playlist for your life - we definitely have songs that define us as a couple.

  2. Such an enjoyable and cute date!

  3. The playlist is a great idea. Did you save the playlist when you were done?

  4. I'm sad to say that I don't recognise many of these songs. There seems to be a blank somewhere that consists of bringing up 2 children while working full time. That was a bad idea (the working bit).

  5. fun idea for date night. i'll keep this in mind when it's my turn to plan in may! thanks for sharing!
