Each morning, one of the first things I do is to log on to live365.com (a paid radio service of like a million stations!) where I choose from about 25 of my presets and select what I call 'morning music', tunes which put a spring in my step and a smile on my face. You know, like Katrina and the Waves' Walking on Sunshine, or A-ha's Take on me.

I'm an old soul when it comes to music. I love all that old time jazz, from the 20s right up to the smooth stuff babes like Sade put out these days. I also love Celtic tunes and the classics and the 50s and 60s, and of course, the 80s, bad hair and all, up until nap time for the kids and right after, this ten-hour long soundtrack of my day just goes on until I settle back to a nice movie or a book in bed.

And then silence. I need – and have always needed – complete silence when I sleep. Perhaps it's my mind's way of BEGGING for reprieve after a day of Spandau, Bon Jovi, Sting, Sinatra and Beethoven.

But this old girl will rock on.

What is the soundtrack of your day?
