Anything by ABBA!
Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?
Definitely The Beatles! Their music is so amazing but also they wrote such a variety of songs; some which are very emotional but also songs that are great to dance to!
What is the soundtrack to your life?
I love Beethoven's music so much, he is my favourite composer. His music is dramatic, beautiful, and it is so exciting so I would say definitely Beethoven's music would be the soundtrack to my life because it inspires me so much but also I definitely relate to Ed Sheeran's music and song lyrics so he would have to be included too!
