7 songs that changed my life – Day 7

To be fair, it probably wasn’t the rendition from old blue eyes that changed my life, but the ones performed by the cast members of Neon Genesis Evangelion (see Day 6 about my j-pop awakening).  That being said, it was Fly Me to the Moon that embarked me on journey into big band jazz and the Rat Pack.  I was 21, (it was a very good year) and suddenly Frank Sinatra was no longer “old people music” to me.  Sometimes to go forward, you need to take a few steps backward and this was my step.
There have been many other songs that have been influential in my life, but when I trace back to the roots of the music that I’ve enjoyed and continue to enjoy, I feel that the seven songs presented are the origins of it all.
