My fave songs (in no particular order) number 56

Move On Up

Curtis Mayfield

‘Remember your dream is your only scheme, so keep on pushing’

My love for this song dates back to high school, but it’s the sheer optimism in the lyrics and Mayfield’s lovely voice which keeps it in my ever expanding list of inspiring songs to listen to when writing.

It was included in a scene in Bend it like Beckham, a coming of age movie directed by Gurinder Chadha, about a teenage football fan named Jess, the scene happens when Jess is still trying to please her parents, and hiding the fact that she’s playing football.
