It’s a phrase that’s often used, but a good one nonetheless. And Soundtrack to My Life is a new series featuring musicians and performers documenting the important musical chapters in their lives.
From first album they every bought to the songs they want at their funeral. Mine was Sheer Heart Attack, can’t decide on the swansong. Always liked Elton’s Funeral for a Friend, it’s just so dramatic. Hmm this needs more thought. I digress…
The first celeb off the ranks is Ms. Sophie Ellis-Murder-on-the-Dancefloor-Bextor. WOuldn’t mind catching Darren Hayes too. Why didn’t they get Tina?
It airs 10pm Friday on ABC2.
Presented by Sarah Cawood, Soundtrack To My Life is an insightful, thought-provoking music series looking at a number of musicians’ lives, work and influences. This first episode features UK pop star Sophie Ellis Bextor.
Filmed at Gibson Guitar’s London headquarters, each episode focuses on a different musician, the music that shaped their career and the lyrics that changed their lives.
From the first record they bought, to the music they want played at their funeral, Soundtrack To My Life is a mixture of presenter interview, music video clips as well as unique performances from the artist.
