My lovely and talented friend Sarah (see day 1 for link) started this challenge.
I am going to do this the way Sarah did – a song every day and with a few lines about why I like each artist and song, and why it is significant for me. I am as much about the music as the words by the way, so I have to like both if I include a song.
Please feel free to join in this challenge with your own lists!
‘Paranoid’ by Black Sabbath
When I was 17 I was at a sixth-form college. Wednesday afternoons we could choose between several creative activities. Predictably my similarly misfit friends and I decided to help one of the teachers with the college garden. This was adjacent to the music building and some of our peers chose to learn an instrument as their activity. One of these individuals was learning electric guitar and played the intro to ‘Paranoid’ repeatedly for weeks. The tune always reminds me of those afternoons.
