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.
