    really tough to choose and no particular order;

    1. Sunshine on Leith. hibs first, last and always. 07 and 16. that's all.

    2. Don't look back in Anger. huge Oasis fan, when they played it live it was probably the most incredible thing at any gig I had been at. I moved to Manchester in April and since then, given the. events of the summer here, it's taken on a new role. Its just timeless.

    3. Changes - Bowie. Huge Bowie fan and this is one of my favourite songs and my favourite Bowie track. I was in the car when it came on the radio he had died and they played this right after. Always sticks in my mind.

    4. Ordinary World - Duran Duran. I'm not a DD fan but my Mum's Dad loved music and I was really close to him. He was a bit of a Duran Duran fan and towards the end of his battle with Alzheimer's, this track playing was one of the few things that brought a smile to his face. Played it at his funeral and it makes me think of him everytime I hear it.

    5. Florescent Adolescent - Arctic Monkeys. As others have said; Alex Turner is a fantastic lyricist. They aren't one of my top 5 bands, but this song reminds me of Uni and just an era of growing up and finding who I was. Good memories.

    Ok TD. Here goes - a few points. Firstly I reserve the right to change them ..and Iíve tried to think about those that remind me of my times, rather than the perfect record. Find it almost impossible to leave it to five. So have listed my favourites from my time in the scene

    Ps. Here is a link to a northern soul playlist from a thread I put on her a couple of years ago

    Brilliant stuff thanks, I will need to check these out.

    I've been to half a dozen soul nights over the past few years but my knowledge has been pretty limited to some of the big compilations and a few other recommendations on Twitter and social media.

    For ease of explanation itís 60s black American soul Music that grew to prominence across the UK in the 70s and remains an active still
    Daily underground music and dance scene today ...

    There is a film ďnorthern Soul ď that was on Netflix at one point which gives a sense of the music and the scene ...

    Check out the soundtrack which has a great set of tunes from the scene
    So why is it called Northern Soul and not just Soul music like it is in America?

    It's not just about the music, it's about the culture that grew up in Northern England in the 60's and 70's.

    I started thinking about this and struggle to get my day in 5 songs never mind my life. Was looking on YouTube the other night and lost about 4 hours in the 70s alone. I'll maybe come back and try 5 songs per decade.

    Northern Soul is a phrase used by writer Dave Godin iin early 70s the story is that he noticed football fans from northern England asking for faster tempo 60s soul records in his London shop.

    There was a difference in tempo of the dance soul music that was popular in the Manchester , Blackpool , stoke etc clubs than those of London which have typically been a bit more R&B oriented

    Excellent thread! I recall once trying to come up with a 'soundtrack' for my life (it was some ****ty Facebook thing), and it was quite difficult. It sounds like a cliche, but music is absolutely integral to my day to day life and helps me through pretty much everything!

    1) Breath by Breaking Benjamin - when I completed my PhD in 2013, I got the Breaking Benjamin logo (my avatar) tattooed on my right arm. I'd been wary of band tattoos, as I had a few friends with Lostprophets tattoos, so it took me a while to actual get it done. At this point (and to date), BB are my favourite band - they ceased to exist following numerous legal disputes between the lead singer and his former band mates. I listened to their back catalogue on repeat when I was analysing data, writing my thesis and dealing with the ****tiest supervisors I could possibly have asked for. I overcame very limited support, I overcame near-catastrophic hard drive failure and I overcame being doubted at every turn to 'earn my stripes'. This was 3 very tough years of my life, and BB were my soundtrack on a daily basis with 'Breath' being the song that resonated most.

    2) Numb by Linkin Park - I've been a MASSIVE Linkin Park fan since the Hybrid Theory EP (released shortly before they released Hybrid Theory). Meteora (in my opinion) is their best album, and when I was an angsty teenager, I listened to that album daily. Not only does 'Numb' remind me of growing up (and dealing with my early teenage demons), but it's become increasingly powerful in later life too. I've remained a huge LP fan, and was genuinely incredibly upset by the passing of Chester Bennington. As someone who suffers from mental health issues, LP's lyrics have always resonated with me from my teenage years to adulthood - becoming retrospectively aware of the trauma behind some of those lyrics, and seeing someone in CB succumb to his own mental health problems, 'Numb' is a song that reminds me how difficult things can be, and that I'm not alone.

    3) If Nothing Breaks, Nothing Moves by Arcane Roots - In April this year, my wife and I welcomed our daughter into the world. While her arrival was traumatic (chord around her neck, not breathing, ICU...), she was delivered with a playlist that my wife had put together filling the room. As she was delivered, 'If Nothing Breaks...' was playing, and everytime I hear it now (despite it's ferocity), I think of my daughter and how happy she currently is. Funnily, the theme tune to In The Night Garden also does this...

    4) Shipping Up To Boston by The Dropkick Murphys - I can't profess to being a massive Dropkick Murphys fan. I'm not really a massive Celtic Punk fan, but Shipping Up To Boston is a song I always associate with my time living in New England and my resultant affinity with my MLB and NFL teams: teams I've been very fortunate to witness winning many Championships since I started following them back in the 90s.

    5) My Own Summer by Deftones - my absolute go-to when I'm in a foul mood. This has been the case since high school for me. This song is pure catharsis.

    Bowie was such a huge part of my life in my teens and hard to choose one from that period Queen Bitch, Changes, Ziggy Stardust & Jean Genie are all so good.

    Pretty Vacant - Sex Pistols, Punk was such a great time in my late teens and this one stood out.

    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana, Nevermind is an amazing album and this song just blew me away at the time, still play it a lot.

    Killing In the Name Of - Rage Against The Machine, if you're ever feeling angry at anything just play this, it will help, I had a lot of rage around this time.

    Blackbird - Alter Bridge, lost my dad around the time this was released, if you've ever lost someone important in your life this song will mean a lot and bring a tear to your eye, and Myles Kennedy has to be the best vocalist in rock.

    No particular order to these.

    Nut Bush City Limits - Ike And Tina Turner - One of the few songs that will get me up out my seat for a bump with the Mrs. no other reason.


    Killer Queen - Queen - Remember first hearing this while at secondary school and was just blown away by the lyrics and the guitar solos.


    Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty - Similarly the lyrics and the sax just seemed to resonate with me been a huge Gerry Rafferty/Stealers Wheel fan ever since.


    I Feel Love - Donna Summer - Another one of these songs that just seemed ground breaking at the time Georgio Moroder on Synth was epic.


    Teardrops - Womack and Womack - Was a big hit at the time my first son was born every time I hear it takes me straight back to the delivery room at Elsieís.
