Music Monday: In My Life by The Beatles

musicmonday-2

 

Today is my first time taking part in Music Monday (started by Drew at thetattoedbookgeek)! I keep meaning to join in but then time gets away from me. This week seemed a good time to start though as I wanted to pay tribute to my mum by sharing one of her favourite songs. It’ll be ten years this week since she died, and I miss her. My mum loved music and always had a record on when I was growing up – I definitely got my eclectic taste in music from her. 🙂

 

I’m unable to share the video on my blog but here is a link to the song on youtube.

Rubber Soul by The Beatles 

 

In My Life is taken from the album Rubber Soul (I’ve pinched the photo above from my husband’s instagram – he’s a big music fan so you can follow him here if you’d like to).

 

The lyrics in In My Life are so poignant – they meant a lot to my mum (and to me now). She always used to turn the radio up full blast whenever this song came on and I can still hear her now telling me to shush for two minutes while she listened and sang along.

 

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

  1. I love that song, Hayley! Thanks for reminding me of it. I like the idea of Music Monday, too – a really good idea, I think.

  2. This album always reminds me strongly of a particular time in my childhood as it was a firm favourite of my mother’s. Thank you for the recollection.
