30 Day Music Meme: Day 8

Looks like it's going to be another late night - curiosity got the better of me and I waited to see some of the preliminary results of today's voting in the general election. I might as well not have bothered as currently only about 3% of the votes have been counted (up until the last election we used computers to cast our votes, but this year we've gone back to red pencils and ballot papers because of some security breach scare, I suppose). So all I've got for my staying up past my usual bedtime is the news that Balkenende has thrown in the towel and has stepped down as leader of the Christian Democrats, and in so doing has stepped down as PM as well. He's led 4 coalition governments over the last 8 years, none of which have managed to sit out their full 4 year term; so I say it's time he'd let someone else have a go, and if the exit polls are anything to go by, it will be someone from a different party in charge come the autumn.

Anyway, back to meming:

Day 8: A song you liked when you were younger

For this one, I'm going to go back to the very beginning, or 1970. My 8th birthday was coming up and for the first time, what I wanted more than toy trains or scooters, was my very own album. Up until then, my mum's record collection consisting of c&w, jazz and a few light classical albums, had sufficed; but I'd discovered Cliff Richard on the radio when I was 6, and now I wanted nothing so much as to have my own music to listen to whenever I felt like it. So top of my birthday wishlist that year was a Cliff Richard album, that I stipulated had to have a few very specific songs on it, of which The Day I Met Marie was one. It took my Dad several days of driving up and down the country stopping in at every record shop on the way, but he managed to get me that album that I treasured for years, until it broke in a house move in 1974.

And, by the way, the songs I liked when I was younger are the songs I still like today.
