We Will Rock You – Queen
I grew up with a lot of Queen’s music, but this song reminds me of the time my uncle came to visit us in Belgium when I was only four or five years old. He taught me the lyrics to this song, but changed the words ‘rock you’ to, well, hazard a guess. All I can say is that my mum wasn’t too pleased! 

Overjoyed – Bastille 
This is my favourite song by one of my favourite bands, and the memory I have of this is a weird one. I’ve seen the band perform live a few times, but this is the only one I still haven’t seen them play live yet. It’s also the first song I ever listened to of theirs. 

La Valse d’Amélie (Version Piano) – Yann Tiersen
La Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie is one of my favourite films, and this song off the soundtrack not only reminds me of the film, but also of Paris, which is my favourite city to visit. 

Roll Over Beethoven – Chuck Berry
This song reminds me of the night I met my partner. His band were playing at the same festival I was working at, and I was pleasantly surprised when the drummer (my partner) sang this song -and really well, I might add.

From Yesterday – Thirty Seconds to Mars
As embarrassing as it is to admit, I used to be obsessed with this band in my late teens. This song (and the album this song is from) remind me of my sixteenth birthday, when I went to see them in concert in Paris with my mum.
