Songs For My Kids: 30-day Song Challenge Day 28
Welcome to Day 28 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 27 here.
A song by an artist whose voice you love
When I was 17 I was spending the majority of my time farting about playing Fifa on my Sega MegaDrive. This artist was recording her debut album.
When I first heard it back in 2008, the modern folk sound was so refreshing at a time of Amy Winehouse and, urgh, Duffy. Since then five more albums have followed and although her sound has evolved and developed, her voice has remained glorious. A very easy choice.
‘Soothing’ by Laura Marling.
