Soundtrack to my life

Sang every song from South Pacific and Caousel when I was a toddler. Particular favourite 'I'm gonna wash that man right outa my hair'
First single purchased 'Yeah Yeah' by Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames
Remember singing Schubert's The Trout at Guildford Civic Hall whilst in the school choir.
Played every size of recorder.
Tried to play the guitar but didn't realise until too late that I was holding it the wrong way round. Wonder whether I was really left handed.
Played Beatles songs on the piano to accompany Primary School Nativity Play
David Cassidy fan at around 10/11 years old.
Graduated to Gilbert O'Sullivan when he released 'Claire'
Discovered Olivia Newton John
Loved the American sound epitomised by Eagles and America
Punk came along
...and went
Was more Rolling Stones than Beatles
Teenage soundtracks... Al Stewart Year of the Cat, Colin Blunstone, Todd Rundgren, Free
Dabbled with Cream, Jethro Tull, King Crimson
Peter Gabriel at University
Pink Floyd Devotee
Never went for Motown apart from Stevie Wonder
Discovered Van Morrison, John Martyn
It al goes a bit blank then , can't think why
Veered more towards classical
Always had a slightly eclectic mix of likes
Now in the era of itunes discovering artists I never knew existed
Wonder what stage comes next
Please someone shoot me if I start buying Lloyd Webber show tunes compilations
