Songs For My Kids: 30-day Song Challenge Day 26

Songs For My Kids: 30-day Song Challenge Day 26

Welcome to Day 26 of this 30-day song challenge – I started this personal challenge as a way to document my taste in music so that if my kids are ever interested they can see the sort of stuff their dad was into. If you want to see what songs I’ve picked for previous days, you can start with day 25 here.

A song that makes you want to fall in love

I love every second of this song. The first part is about a guy, feeling inadequate and uncomfortable, thinking about someone else back home but being ‘stuck in a punch line swallowing punch’. Yet it is the second half where the song really opens up and connects with me. I was 29 when I married my wife and I’ve love to say this is about us.

You know I dreamed about you
For twenty-nine years before I saw you
You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for, for twenty-nine years

‘Slow Show’ by The National.
