We're a few days away from the beginning of the A-Z Blog Challenge, and today is the big theme reveal. I've never used a theme before, but this time I'm going to give it a whirl. So the theme is...
The Music of My Life.
Music has always played a big part in my life. Memories of many of my major (and minor) life events are marked by songs. For the twenty-six days of the A-Z Blog Challenge, I will feature songs that corresponded with some life events from the last three decades of my life. I'll begin at age ten and work my way through. I'm really excited about this, and I hope it will be a walk down memory lane for some of you too.
Since I won't be venturing back into the 70s much, I'll leave you with one from the year I was born.
Although I have no memories from this time of my life (my birth), some twenty-plus years later I was on a London tube one night riding from a central point of the city to my shared flat in Bayswater. A very drunk man staggered onto the rail car just before the doors closed. Within seconds of leaving the station, he began to sing the first verse of "The Day the Music Died (Miss American Pie)". By the time he reached the chorus, everyone in the rail car was singing along--including me.
When we reached Bayswater station, we all went our separate ways, still singing Don MacLean's legendary song.
