Songs to break up to

Thinking of songs for my funeral took me back to my teenage years when the first love of my life so so cruelly dumped me.

On the radio was Wishing on a Star by Rose Royce. Then Dance the Body Music by Osibisa - the next line is "it will make you happy", cheering me up slightly.

Then in the 6th form common room "Changes" by Black Sabbath.

Later was "Spread your Wings and Fly Away" by Queen.

What was your song/s?
Music doesn't remind me of bad things in a sad way.

Even if I hear music from a difficult time, I remember how much I enjoyed listening to it at the time and how much it cheered me up then.

Although, Faithless Ft. Estelle got me through a very difficult time and holds a special place in my soul. Couldn't NOT dance to it.

Eurythmics - When I've tried everything and
Bob Dylan - It's all over now, baby blue - sob

Souvenir Affair Keith Christmas..

Probably didn't title this very well - as much about reminiscing and remembering good times as well as bad! My experience above is very much water under the bridge and not for the older reader Tony Blackburn pleading for Tessa Wyatt to return to him, on live radio. But music does take me back to other times. In fact Music was my first love. And it will be my last. To live without my music Would be impossible to do. In this world of troubles, My music pulls me through.
Music style might not be to all tastes, though I have a weakness for cheesy country, but the lyrics are very apposite and rather clever:

Forest Hill Tavern circa 1976
'If you leave me now' Chicago
First serious boyfriend.
Patience Red Devil, John Miles was going up the Groovy Fookers thread at the weekend.

Chicago - that is another thread, songs that we smmoched to, which would have been joined by Not in Love by 10cc and for some some strange reason we'd finish with Stairway to Heaven
too late Malumbo - this genie is not going back in the bottle
Smooch I meant.

Great posting by Jah Lush on the groovy fookers thread - Jonathan Richman - That Summer Feeling. Great fan of JR but not familiar with the song, but almost had a tear when I heard it and that certainly talk me back to when I was a teenager in love.
Mine was Stay with me baby ruby turner and I rather go blind Etta James,
Then it was go your own way Fleetwood Mac after a couple of days
Soon realised another one comes along haha
