These are the songs I picked between 27 June and 3 July 2014. I’ll talk about them on my first instalment.

The Spirit of Adventure Craig Copeland

Proud of Your Boy Adam Jacobs – … On that day, 28 June, Proud of Your Boy took me back to the days when I was a kid, and either my mother or father tucked me in bed every night.

Long Ago And Far Away Helen Forrest, Dick Haymes – … The idea that there is one particular person predestined for you; or someone you can dream of, and who will be easy to recognise when you meet them, gave me hope.

The Way You Look Tonight Teddi King

Maybe Alicia Morton –  … However, my friend couldn’t come up with new music for my lyrics, so I had to use the Maybe melody with my newly minted lyrics.

Coney Island Amanda Balon, Gary Beach, Harve Presnell, Kathie Lee Gifford, Shelly Burch

Who Do You Love, I HopeAndrew Palermo, Nicole Ruth Snelson
