Songs that take my breath away….


Songs can take you back to a moment in your past like nothing else can! Songs link you to good and bad times and instantly take you there and allow you to relive a memory or moment for the few minutes that the song is playing.

Here are the songs that never fail to take my breath away – they catapult me into a specific moment, link me to a special person or time, or are just so beautiful I literally have to stop and let them absorb me!
