Writing 101 – Day 3: Three most important songs in my life

Today’s Prompt: Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you?

Today, try free writing. To begin, empty your mind onto the page. Don’t censor yourself; don’t think. Just let go. Let the emotions or memories connected to your three songs carry you.

Today’s twist: You’ll commit to a writing practice.

Here goes……. I actually really enjoyed this assignment. I think I have learnt a lot about myself, and that I love ALL kinds of music.

1. Dancing Queen by ABBA – this immediately connects me with my late Mother. She really LOVED this song, and I have happy memories of dancing around on the shagpile carpet with her.

2. You are my sunshine – relates to my relationship with my daughter and the sweetness and purity of her nature.

3. Imagine by John Lennon. Quite an emotional one. It tells a story of the people, our hopes for a better world. My favourite line of course…
‘You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.’
