Umbrella – Rihanna

My husband and I worked in the Caribbean shortly after we were married. This played everywhere and summed things up.

Friday I’m In Love – The Cure

Summer of ’92 studying law and having adventures in Sicily.

Bobby McGhee – Janis Joplin

My sister’s party piece. Once seen never forgotten.

The Jeely Piece Song – Adam McNaughton

My mum was a founding member of the Jeely Piece Club, a children’s organisation in Castlemilk, Glasgow. This song was a big part of our family life and was my party piece at university.

Baby Beluga – Raffi

A little song about a baby whale from a class I took the kids to when they were toddlers. They both loved dancing to it under a parachute. My son even looked a bit like a baby beluga.
