When I was eleven I was a little bit dorky. Lots of reading, lots of innocent playground games, lots of school pride and very obedient to my teachers! Yet even as a dork I knew it was time to put childish ways behind me. So if you had told the eleven year old version of me that fourteen years later she would be sitting in a jazz club surrounded by people wearing newspaper hats, dancing along to Peter Combe’s live rendition of “Juicy Juicy Green Grass” and enjoying it, she probably would have been very embarrassed.
Fortunately it seems to be that the older we get the more we appreciate that some things about being child-like are still legitimately awesome. The music of our youth is no exception!
What was your favourite childhood music?
