10 songs my dad used to play

He loved his music, and was always keen to tell the stories behind each of the songs.

Being kids we were always a bit fidgety,  yeah yeah, you told us this one already.

It’s tough being kids, we don’t really know how to show our appreciation,

and as adults it’s generally too late to do so.

The great thing, I guess, is we remember the songs, and invariably,


much later,

come to love them too!
