E – 

It is such a pleasure to be working for this fantastic campaign. I can’t think of any job I would rather be doing than helping to enrich the lives of people living with dementia through music. I have seen first-hand how dementia reduces people’s ability to communicate; the connection that music creates is invaluable and unmatched. We simply must keep it going.

Below, I’ve shared my personal playlist of music significant to me.

Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run

I can’t remember when I wasn’t a Springsteen fan and this one always gets me singing along

Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata

Takes me back to school days and learning the piano

Holst/Cecil Spring Rice – I Vow To Thee My Country

There’s something very comforting about favourite hymns learned as a child

Squeeze – Up The Junction

Upbeat with great lyrics and even better memories

Dire Straits – Two Young Lovers

Driving along with the top down on a summer’s day. Love a saxophone!

Eagles – Desperado

Early twenties – boyfriends and breakups

Madness – Baggy Trousers

When I thought I was a bit of a rebel!

Queen -Don’t Stop Me Now

This feels like the anthem of my youth
