My mum is like me. We both get prone to sudden obsessions that we just can’t let go. By obsession I mean – food, hobbies, music, film. We get obsessed with these fancies for a while, until something new takes us over.
I heard Theme From A Summer’s Place on the radio this afternoon, and was reminded of my mum’s orchestral music obsession. This must have been in the late 90s. I can’t remember how it started, maybe it had to do with a Reader’s Digest box set of “relaxing music”. I think I’ll go back and dig out the cd! Because we can all do with relaxing melodies at mid-week.
These two are not music I would normally blog about. But I have fond memories of them, having heard them being played on repeat in the living room stereo. Presenting my mum’s ultimate favourites!
