Each week, we invite music lovers to share the songs that have soundtracked their lives. In her final week as TimeOut editor, Joanna Hunkin shares her picks.

1. Kylie – Locomotion

My eldest brother gave me this cassette for my 7th birthday and it remains the best thing he's ever given me. I thought Kylie – with her blonde perm piled on top of her black hat – was the coolest thing in the world and this was greatest song. I would dance around my bedroom, mirroring Kylie's dance moves for hours. Little did I know that 20 years later, I would find myself dancing alongside Kylie herself at an Alicia Keys concert in Auckland.

2. Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell

As a 7-year-old, my favourite

3. Country House – Blur
