#thejanuarychallenge D A Y 6 – Soundtrack of my day
. . .
Saturday is quite often playlist challenge day in our house anyway so this one’s easy. We pick a theme and then create a playlist based on that theme. Today’s is ‘Songs from TV and film’. Bonus points if you get them all (swipe for close-up).

Day 6 – Soundtrack of my day #TheJanuaryChallenge@64M_Artists is Life on Mars by the fabulous David Bowie. I love singing and have a very eclectic music taste but am just watching the Box set of ‘Life on Mars’
#thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists @64millionartists today is about the soundtrack to my day. How impossible! How to choose? Which genre? Which time of my life? What mood am I in? Too many decisions! But I’ve gone with #Yes my beloved Yes. This is On The Silent Wings of Freedom but I could have chosen so many. This minute is the introduction to that 8 minutes of music and my inspiration to learn to play the drums (and my disillusioned realisation that I should give up ) Yes was my brothers fault (@thetitanicsailsatdawn it’s all down to you) I couldn’t avoid this growing up, it was like being inoculated. But I couldn’t be happier. In later years when I needed a refuge, I found it with Yes (and ELP, Genesis, Pink Floyd, some others, but mostly Yes) Jon Anderson’s voice is so unusual but it works for me. Helps that he is from Accrington where I lived as a child too. That accent apparent in his weird vocals is so evocative of my childhood. He’s never lost his accent even after years in America. His lyrics are insane, another reason I love Yes. The seemingly insane lyrics and tunes work really well with my weird personality! From Mable Greer’s Toyshop, The Warriors to Yes there are years and years worth of fabulous, crazy, insane songs that fill a big corner of my life. Not many days pass before I reach for a Yes album. Try Awaken (there is a fabulous live version of this with an Icelandic orchestra on YouTube) Roundabout, And You and I, Close to the Edge, too many classics to list here, but some explosive covers of Simon and Garfunkel’s America, the Beatles Every Little Thing even Something’s Coming from Westside Story – covers that you wouldn’t recognise as being anything to do with the original but so incredibly great! Ahhh, when the day of reckoning comes just play Yes all day long on repeat and it will be like I’m still there. This post is for Eric who is perhaps the only one who will understand a single word of it. If this January Challenge is to get us thinking, well, you’ve done that today. It’s a good job I have no near neighbours because the volume is ramped right up now and Yes all the way today! Oh! And Roger Dean’s album artwork – perfect!
Taking part in this year’s @64millionartists January Challenge. Day 6: Soundtrack to your day.
10 second snippets of what I anticipate will be the soundtrack to my day: @bbcradio4 (because it’s a constant); We Three Kings sung by @kingscollegechoir (because it’s Epiphany and I am off carolling @geffryemuseum with @designbyjenkins) and finally Steveie Wonder’s rendition of Happy Birthday (because I am off to raise a glass to 30 years of @trudyvictoria – Happy Birthday my dear! ✨ ). What a horrible sound clash this would be if you played them all at once… Sign up here: www.dothinkshare.com/sign-up/
I’m 2 days behind on #thejanuarychallenge but here is DAY 6: choose a soundtrack to your day. Didn’t hesitate in taking the chance to encourage everyone to listen to Mark Padmore (personal fave) singing Waft Ye Angels from Handel’s Jephtha (5 minutes of pure heaven – YouTube link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=im0muLWKoxo). I think this is one of *the* most beautiful things you’ll hear. Photo the @wnotweet production I worked on (credit:Clive Barda). Mind you, if this is the soundtrack to my day, I’ll be a blubbering wreck by lunchtime… #64millionartists
#Day6 of #TheJanuaryChallenge@64M_Artists my #soundtrack for the day. I’ll be finishing off my dissertation so my soundtrack is the sound of an old typewriter, tapping away, steadily growing the text (and hopefully not too much corrector fluid required!).
