Comfort Songs From Youth

Patience, people, patience.
I just got back from skiing in France this morning and will start writing on Amsterdam in the next few days, but some winding down is necessary.

I wonder what songs you all grow up listening to? For me, its a mixture of Disney tunes, good ol’ sixties tunes which my Mom loves, some Celtic and irish music here and there, and some classic Canto pops.

So while I was lounging in our apartment apres-ski with mes amis, we shared what’s on our iTunes. I remember I had some songs that I hadn’t incorporated. And guess what I digged out, a complete set of  what I call my childhood comfort songs sitting silencely (neglected by me) in one of my music folders.

I remember a young self, who must be no more than 5 or 6 years old, wearing matching T-shirts with my sister, sitting in the back seat of our family car, dozing off to the breeze of the Hong Kong countryside and the warm and upbeat music of our parents’ favourite.

The Sound of Silence – Simon & Garfunkel

Yesterday Once More – The Carpenters

Rivers of Babylon – Boney M

I Swear – All4One

Hotel California – Eagles

What’s your childhood favourites? Do share! And I wish you all a great Sunday evening! 🙂

Until then,

  1. I wrote a blog entry about a Simon and Garfunkel tribute band I saw this week. It brought back so many memories to hear that music again.

    Thanks for sharing.
