A Year in Music

Now that 2011 has officially drawn to a close and 2012 has begun it is a chance to reflect on the past year, learn from last year’s errors, reveal in the joys and accomplishments, and generally reminisce about all that happened to you in the space of 365 days.
In my experience music is the best thing to jog memories so I have compiled a list of the songs that help me remember 2011. The list invokes a mixture of happy and sad memories but no year should be absent from either.

January – Taio Cruz – Dynamite

February – Ya Nichya, Ya Chuzhaya (I have no idea who the artist is but it’s a great Russian dance song)

March – Genesis – In Too Deep

April – Arvo Part – Alina/Kanon Pokajanen (I had 3 X 4000 word essays to write in 5ish weeks and it helped me keep focused while studying)

May – Buddy Holly – It Doesn’t Matter Anymore (The UCL Summer Ball was 50’s themed this year and I remember listening to this while revising for my exams)

June – Mumford and Sons – The Cave (I went to visit my friend and her family in Ireland and they always remind me of my trips to Ireland)

July – Biffy Clyro - Bubbles

August – Ed Sheeran – The A Team

September – Katy Perry – Last Friday Night (always makes me think of the night my friend and I went out ‘Chavy’ Clubbing and fell over while trying to dance in high heels)

October – One Direction – What Makes You Beautiful

November – Snow Patrol – How to Be Dead (I rediscovered this on my Ipod and spent most of the month listening to it)

December – Michael Bublé - Baby Come Home I have no idea what 2012 will bring as I am not psychic, however, I am hoping to be sat here at the start of 2013 compiling a similar list and reflecting on all that happened to me in 2012.
