Having recently made another wedding cake with lyrics to the first dance, it got me thinking about my own wedding music. There are several songs that bring strong emotions and memories of our very special day. It got me thinking more deeply into how music and lyrics evoke such vivid memories and emotions for various significant points of our lives.
Music has always played a huge role in my everyday life. Perhaps this is why it’s such an important part in the construction of my own autobiographical memories.
In light of this, I’ve decided to start a new series of posts – “Snozcumber Street: brought to you by the letter…”
For those who do not quite get the title (Jenna, ahem), it is a play on Sesame Street. My aim is to go through an alphabetised list of my life’s most significant songs. I thought it was a particularly apt title, because a lot of Sesame Street is presented in the form of songs and music (a brilliant way for children to learn and train their memory).
I will really have to restrict the number of songs I list- three is the magic number. It will be tough to choose, but here goes!
Today, Snozcumber Street is brought to you by the letter A!
ALL I NEED
This was the song that I walked down the aisle to. We married in an art gallery, and I get taken back there very time I hear it. Although, on my wedding day I was in tears as I walked down the aisle to this. Not because the idea of getting married was horrific, but I was overwhelmed with feelings of joy and worry- my dad had a severe fall down some stairs the day before and very nearly didn’t make it.
