My Mum mostly loved to listen to ABBA and The Carpenters and some other 70s music. I remember being obsessed with the song Eagle by ABBA, still a good song, I’ll have to listen to it again soon. Not been on any long car journeys recently so not ended up playing my ABBA CDs!
When I was little I was also obsessed with The GNU Song by Flanders and Swann and Istanbul (Not Constantinople) originally by The Four Lads, covered by They Might Be Giants. I heard the cover first but I like both, depends how fast or slow you want to hear it! Also, Mr. Blue Sky both by Electric Light Orchestra, covered by Weezer!
There’s a number of other songs I can think of that changed/expanded my music tastes or that I played to death:
El Chico del Apartamento 512 by Selena Quintanilla, if you don’t know her check her out she was amazing!
The Corrs’ song Would You Be Happier?
You’re a Fool by Allstars
Outside Looking In and Later by Jordan Pruitt
Forgetting to Forget About You by JoJo
Should’ve Said No by Taylor Swift
The Show by Lenka
Fireflies by Owl City
Stop and Stare by OneRepublic
Somewhere Only We Know by Keane
Franklin and Native Tongue by Paramore
It Stops Today by Colbie Caillat
Long Gone by Lady Antebellum
King of Anything by Sara Bareilles
I Know You Know by Esperanza Spalding
Piano Song and Thinking Too Much by Meiko
Predictable by Delta Goodrem
The Way It Was by Brooke Annibale
Sofia by Alvaro Soler
Pepe by CLC
Stop! by Wonder Girls
Wow this was a longer list than I thought it would be… I like too many different styles and genres! 🤷
Whoops, I just realised it was supposed to be 3 or 4… Sorry about the monster list, I got carried away!
