Welcome to this Months feature! Now, January is a time when it is the start of something new and everything fresh! With that means that people are always on the lookout for new music! Well, this feature may not bring you a lot of new music but it will welcome you into my world! Music is a huge part of my life – if i am not listening to it, i am playing my guitar or keyboard or even writing a post for this site (Off The Record).
So to start off 2018 I wanted to write about a topic I love and I came across this daily challenge so I thought why not turn it into an article! So here we go! Lets start with the first in this monthly feature – Lost in Music (You probably have that song stuck in your head now its by Sister Sledge).
A Song that Reminds You of Summer: Yeah 3X – Chris Brown
Back in the summer of 2011, I worked at a summer camp as an Activity Leader – students from across Europe would come to England to improv on their English and when they weren’t in lessons they were doing activities – that’s where we came in! We would do everything from taking them to different locations to go site-seeing, activities to keep them entertained and everything in between. It was so much fun.
I did the summer camp for two years running for the summer but the first year was the best as I met so many people that ended up being still important in my life today. The reason that this song is relevant is because at the end of the summer for the final week we had an awards ceremony and for part of this show I made a showreel to summarise the who summer of fun – it had photos of all the students having fun and the activity leaders as well – this song was the soundtrack to that showreel and everytime i hear that song it takes me back to that summer that was filled of lots of laughs, lots of joy, lots of adventures and lots of laughs.
