A song that reminds me of my 1st job

Well, my first job after leaving school at least. Peterborough used to have (and might still) a live music event in the town center called the "Lazy Sunday Afternoon" (named after a great Small Faces song) which started while I was working at the BBC (British Beef Co). Among the acts who visited were this group who were on the edge of the charts with this song at that time and other acts like Curiosity Killed The Cat (remember them?).

Day 30 Your favourite song at this time last year.

I was familiarising myself with the BBCs 5 to watch at this time last year and unlike this year there were a few worth listening to. This was my favourite.

Day 29 A song from your childhood.

When I first looked at the list of categories this was one of the first to come to me. The earliest song I can remember from my childhood. My brother bought home a pink vinyl copy which was played many, many times.
Squeeze - Cool for cats

Day 28 A song that makes you feel guilty.

Not sure I am ever caused to feel guilty by a song but I like this one and the lyrics seem to fit.

Day 27 A song that you wish you could play

If you're gonna dream, dream big. I keep saying I'm going to learn to play the guitar, so one day who knows?

Day 26 A song that you can play on an instrument.

About the closest I've ever come to playing a song is pecking out this tune on a keyboard.
