Top 5 songs… to turn 21 to

A big celebration calls for big tunes

1. Girl, You’ll be a Woman Soon – Urge Overkill
Dreams up thoughts of a raven haired Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction; the perfect song to float you into adulthood. Just leave out the graphic heroin overdose.

2. Forever Young – Bob Dylan
Strangely uplifting, a reminder that you may be an adult now, but you’ll never be a grown-up.

3. But I Might Die Tonight – Cat Stevens
Have fun while you can, because as Cat says, you might be dead tomorrow.

4. Foxy Lady – Jimi Hendrix
Because girl you got sass, work it.

5. You Sexy Thing – Hot Chocolate
Let’s hope this song helps set the mood for romancing. You’re 21 after all.
