Thank You For The Music #4

As the Bath Festivals team is working from home this spring, we’re keen to share with you (and each other) the tracks that inspire us during these uncertain times. Introducing #ThankYouForTheMusic, a regular feature that is our way of sharing the songs we love and also thanking the incredible musicians who gifted them to the world.

Rebecca Wheeler, Finance Officer

1. Prince, 1999 
My first musical love. Genius.

2. Soul II Soul, Keep on Moving
There was a time in the early 1990’s that myself and a group of friends spent every weekend at the Zap Club in Brighton.  I remember asking Jazzie B if I could borrow a pen outside one weekend!

3. The Stone Roses, Fools Gold
Takes me back to a period of my 20’s that was unforgettable… and unrepeatable.

4. Nick Drake, River Man
My husband introduced me to Nick Drake when we first met, and I still listen, his music is timeless.

5. Caravan, Golf Girl
When our girls were little they loved this song talking about golf.  Now it has become a silly, iconic family tune that we play (and sing along to) on long car journeys.

6. Arbouretum, The Highwayman
A song that gets under your skin, very evocative.

7. Wooden Shjips, Lazy Bones
Fuzzy, acid infused psychedelic rock to get lost in…

8. BTS, DNA
Anyone who knows me and my daughters, knows about our K-Pop obsession.  This song (and music video) started it all.

We’d love to know what tracks our audiences love! Post your #ThankYouForTheMusic recommendations on Instagram or Twitter and tag @TheBathFestival
