41. Imagine – John Lennon

I went to New York city recently and was lucky enough to be part of a human peace sign to commemorate John Lennon’s birthday, in Central Park. So my song for this blog is Imagine by John Lennon. This was played at the event when they were taking an aerial photograph for the world record attempt. It was an emotional moment, I may have teared up a bit. Wow what an experience and to do this with my mum and sister.

40. No Rain – Blind Melon

This song is both a happy and sad track. Happy, upbeat music and a great ending to the film clip but the video and lyrics touch on bullying / depression / trying  to fit in – issues I guess most people have dealt with in their lives.

I love how the little girl in the bumble bee outfit, finds her people at the end of the film clip…..makes me smile every time I watch it, gives me a sense of hope.

39. An open letter to NYC – Beastie Boys

So in the last few days I have decided I’m going to New York City in October. Trying to pick a song that helps me celebrate this is challenging but I have discovered a new song, but a fitting song, by the Beastie Boys about acceptance………………. “Home to many rejecting know one Accepting peoples of all places, wherever they’re from Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten From the Battery to the top of Manhattan Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin Black, White, New York you make it happen” RIP MCA
