Mumra Playlists - Week 8.

Last week I took you back to your teenage years and this week I'm taking you even further back...

Our theme for this week is:


My relationship with music began with my parents musical collection and their generosity in allowing me to claim one of their records as my own.

I was allowed to actually use the much loved glass topped stereo system and place the needle on this record myself, clearly it wasn't one of their favourites!

I took a liking to this song and my parents either gave me it or it just became mine, the details I can't remember but I played it over and over and it was 'My song...'

My love of travel and sunshine started at a very early age obviously. I still love the flight announcements when I get on a plane and always hope the pilot will launch into this tune.

  1. Wouldn't get away with it nowadays. Typically Tropical was a white guy singing about being a black bus driver. LOL.

  2. And he was from Brixton. Classic. I was unaware of the context obviously it was all about the vibe, man.

  3. Ooh, I have a classic for you. Will have to do this. *Adds to list of post to be done*

  4. I got here in the end. Love Typically Tropical. Hope you like mine!
