Ha ha HeadKnowsHeartDoesnt. Don`t speak was my stbx`s favourite song. He even made me try and explain what I thought it was about some years ago. Guess I should have seen the signs.
My favourite will always be, I will survive by Tina Turner.
The greatest love of all by Whitney Houston.
Singing them at top volume in the shower really kicks you into a good place.

I could go on. These were some of my more empowering and strengthening songs. But sometimes you just need to feel sorry for your self and have a good cry to get it out of your system. I have a very depressing play-list for that.
I definitely feel a sense of Freedom ( George Michael ) today. Realise now how controlling the ex could be. Since he's been gone ( Rainbow ) making decisions by myself has been a bit scary, and I've buggered up on occasion, but I'm going to learn to enjoy it again.
There has got to be a (Mr) brightside ( Killers) to all this.
Looking ahead - ok now I feel old again. Have only just got to grips with iTunes, I think Spotify may be beyond me. Glad you are enjoying the music though.
Declan - I hope this doesn't sound like an insult but when I first read your posts, Dylan with his guitar, from the magic roundabout came to mind as you seem so laid back. At least I was right about the guitar part !
Having a brilliant day today. Daughter- in France, Son - on university visit, Me - dancing around the house in shorts ( sounds very sad but it's the first time I have worn them in 18 years as the ex hated my legs - admittedly I wouldn't win a Miss lovely legs competition - but quite frankly who cares now )
