Hi readers, It’s Emily and William here writing about our favourite songs of the decades.
I, William being 51, really like the eighties and nineties, like Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’, Michael Jacksons ‘Rock with You’ and ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ by Whitney Houston, also the Bodyguard film soundtrack. I also like ‘One more time’ by Britney Spears and ‘Don t look back in anger’ by Oasis. Listening to them while living alone helps me feel relaxed and good. It’s often better than watching telly and I might even dance if I feel like it!
Although I quite like today’s music, I do prefer these ones
As for me, Emily, I’d listen to Boyzone growing up, who are fab. Some of my friends at school liked them too, so we’d enjoy listening to them together. I’ve been to some of their concerts which made me feel good, and I’d dance and sing. I like how the words of their songs are clear and easy to understand. I also love their nice Irish accents!
Now they’ve broken up, I listen to Ronan Keating who has gone solo and because he’s always been my favourite. Although his music is different to Boyzone, it’s good and it makes me feel chilled out.
I’m going to one of his concerts next year with my friend Debbie which we are thrilled about. Debbie also has a learning disability and this will be her first big concert, so we are both super excited! It will be amazing and we can’t wait!
William has never been to a concert so that’s something we’ll see if we can help him do in the future! So, have a great week readers, and hope you all get to listen to some of your favourite music too.
