Six Songs of Me

 

Guardian Music have just launched Six Songs of Me, a unique celebration of the songs that have shaped peoples’ lives.

The service asks each user to answer six simple questions about the songs that have shaped their lives, namely:

1. What was the first song you bought?
2. What song always gets you dancing?
3. What song takes you back to your youth?
4. What is the best song you’ve ever heard live?
5. What song would you have played at your funeral?
6. What about your encore? your wildcard? one.more.song…

In conjunction with Six Songs of Me we’ve got 1 x Numark PT01-UBS portable turntable to give away.

PLUS @NeilProperMag picked his own 6 answers to the questions above, and you’ll get those thrown in on vinyl to accompany your turntable.
