Way back in late 1998 I got a part time job at the Foxtel call centre.
A few weeks later I met the man who would become my husband.
That Summer was a magical one. On the odd occasion our work shifts intersected we would send sneaky instant messages to each other over the intranet and try to schedule breaks together. Those minutes were so precious. We take them so much for granted now.
The televisions in the centre were always tuned to Channel V, providing a soundtrack that to this day takes me back. Faith Hill, Jennifer Paige and Brittney Spears punctuated our days.
I've been a bit down lately. Actually a lot down, on and off.
But the universe has its ways.
Over the past few weeks part of our soundtrack has caught me over and over again. This song has popped up in random playlists, on the radio, on the TV... None of which I would usually pay much attention to.
It takes me back to those halcyon days. It reminds me to keep going. It makes me move. And sing much to my Little Mate's disgust.
It may have been a one hit wonder, but to this day it speaks to my heart.
What features on the soundtrack to your life?
