Happy #MusicMondays everyone! We are sure you agree that music makes the world go round.
It’s there at all times in our lives from the most happiest to the saddest too. We firmly believe music has the power to change lives and that’s why we’ve asked a range of people from our valuable team members, to our Head Office staff to people at other organisations to tell us their favourite songs and why.
Every Monday for the next 3 weeks you’ll be inspired by 5 tracks that have had a huge affect on people’s loves. Have a read below at our first 5 fave tracks from some wonderful individuals.
Ed Black, Guitar Course Leader – The Strings Club
My favourite song at the moment is ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ – PJ Morton’s live version.
The original Bee Gees is so beautiful anyway and this arrangement and vibe is 10/10 for me. Always puts me in a good mood! PJ Morton – How Deep Is Your Love
Steven Greenhall, CEO – Warwick Music Group
I am probably showing my age here but my favourite song is – Dire Straits ‘Brothers in Arms’ . I have always been a huge Dire Straits fan and this song shows the sheer power of simplicity in song writing alongside a very clever use of chord progressions. I absolutely love it!
Dire Straits – “Brothers in Arms”
Monica Gonzalez, Holiday Camp Manager – The Strings Club
This song by Carlos Nuñez always reminds me of my homeland of Spain. The music of Spain is always thought of as typically Flamenco however in Galicia, it’s the bagpipes and flutes that prevail – reflecting Celtic history and roots too. This song “Mar Adentro” always transports me back and relaxes me.
Carlos Nuñez – Mar Adentro
Pete Bowkett, Admin and Marketing Assistant – The Strings Club
My fave song that always picks me up is Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”. I can’t help but dance when I listen to it!
Pharrell Williams – Happy
Edouard Wood – Hackney Franchisee – The Strings Club
At the moment, I love a piece by Jean-Philippe Rameau called Suite “Les Indes Galante.” He was a French composer who lived from the late 17th to the mid 18th centuries. He was a court composer, a great music theorist, an eminent opera composer and his harpsichord music was some of the most influential music for the instrument of its time.
