This is a question The Soundtrack of your Life

Che Grimsdale writes: Now that Simon Cowell's stolen Everybody Hurts, tell us about songs that mean something to you - good, bad, funny or tragic, appropriate or totally inappropriate songs that were playing at key times.

War of the Worlds
The Jeff Waynes musical version.....
My dad played it to me when I was but a nipper (under 10 years old or so), scared the crap out of me. Could barely listen to it if I was on my own, had to keep pausing it and finding a parent to console me, and may have directly lead to the practice of me carrying a stick on the way up to my bedroom, in order to defend myself against any invading Aliens. Of course, thinking about it, sneezing on them would have done more good, if the story is to be believed, but to a young firemonkey, a big stick was the best form of defense.
Still get goosebumps today every time I hear the opening bars of 'The Eve Of War', amazing piece of music, and managed to see the live show at the O2 arena a couple of years ago, good times.
In fact, think I'll go and have a listen now....

Oh, and just as a 'desert island discs' thing, the Squarepusher remix of 'scratch yer head' by DJ Food is one of my all time favs, heard it on a snowboarding holiday over a decade ago, and I still love it. Fantastic track, especially from 4.00 mins in.
