Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Whenever asked my favourite song, one million and one options come to mind and from a variety of genres, however I've grown to anticipate the words that will come out of my mouth. Each and every time it's 'Put Your Records On' by Corinne Bailey Rae. Perhaps it's the time of year, related moments in life or down to personality alone, but for some reason this song for me has always symbolised tranquility in every way. I don't mean to get too 'intense' with this, but if you're feeling anything less than calm and at ease, I'd suggest listening to the easy-listening song on repeat until you feel the need to wear a brightly-coloured outfit, crystal headband and an embarrassingly generous smile.
I've lost track of how many times I've mentioned the weather now on A Glass Of Ice, though really, there couldn't have been a more fitting time for the sun to make such a lengthy, warm appearance. The moment gave me a gentle reminder that just as Put Your Records On suggests, everything truly does come together in the end and there's no need to kick against life in the meantime. So on that note, I hope each and every single one of you 'get your dreams', but I also hope that in the meantime you'll feel just how wonderfully dreamy life can be.
