In May of this year I turned forty years old, it was an age that I did not think I would see and many times it was an age I didn’t care to see, my life has been a roller coaster of emotions, a lot of pain and heartache, much of that I do not share with anyone, but there also have been many great times, I enjoy many things such as music, so instead of thinking of all the bad in my life I am going to focus on the good.







This is the start of my series on “my favourite forty “something””, I will be focusing on Music, Movies and Games, this article will be about my forty favourite songs.
