I heard a song recently that sums up almost exactly how I feel about music. Music is the most powerful thing to me - it is integral to my life and my memories. 

I couldn't undertake a project about personal geography that wasn't about music. This song seemed the perfect place for me to start.

It was written by Molly Drake and describes the power a song has in unlocking memories and feelings.

I spent a lot of time thinking about which song represents the biggest part of my life and I kept coming back to Annie's Song by John Denver - my Dad used to sing it to me when I was little. He is the biggest reason for my love of music; he was always playing his guitar or listening to records.

Having lost my Dad to Dementia in 2010, it felt like the right time to look back at my memories of him, something I have found hard to do up until now.
