Birthday Celebration

Saturday was my birthday! I chose to celebrate by taking mom and Raven to the local Fake Festival. BEST. DECISION. EVER!!! If you don’t know what a Fake Festival is, it’s a music festival with tribute bands only. We saw the likes of Really Hot Chilli Peppers, Kazabian and The Fillers. Rock is my music…

New Year’s Day

I’m starting 2018 with something I love – music – from a band I love – Pentatonix. This song is one of my favourites. It is upbeat and encourages us to move forward, forget the past or laugh at the bad times. It speaks of friendship, of being there for and caring for each other….

Writing To Reach You

Many moons ago, I heard a song called ‘Writing To Reach You‘ for the first time. It’s by Scottish band Travis. This song has always been amongst my favourites but it’s been stuck in my head lately. I have been thinking a lot about the lyrics and they have taken a different, more powerful meaning….

DANCING ON MY OWN

As most of you may already know, I am a big music lover and sometimes post my random playlists. I have made no secret I am a HUGE Pentatonix fan, often rambling about them, their music and what they represent in terms of acceptance. This song, Dancing On My Own, is their first release since member…

DOOMED

I haven’t posted anything music related in two months now. I miss it but I’m not getting a decent playlist together. I don’t really know why. It’s not that I don’t have enough songs in my catalogue to suggest; I just don’t feel like they should be the current playlist. My brain is weird sometimes….

THE BLACK PLAYLIST

Another trick of my random mind, while I was deciding whether to make a Valentines Playlist last month, all I could think was BLACK. Two of my most favourite songs ever have the word ‘black’ in the title. I wondered then if I could make a whole playlist with songs that had ‘black in their…

VALENTINES PLAYLIST

I know my February playlist is coming in very late. The problem is, I couldn’t decide if I was going to do a Valentines Playlist or a dark playlist “as black as my soul”, to make it really cheesy. I’m not in the mood for Valentines day. Barely husband did send me a valentines Bitmoji…

JANUARY PLAYLIST

It’s a new year and the first playlist of 2017 will bring something different. I have decided to go international! None of the songs listed is in English. At least not the original versions. They still mean a lot to me and, once again, will show my eclectic taste. 1. Caruso – Lucio Dalla (Italy) –…

XMAS PLAYLIST

I have a confession to make: I hate Christmas music! Well, most Xmas music, more specifically radio around Xmas time. The same songs play over and over again and I swear every time I hear Mariah Carey screaming ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ I feel like bashing my head against a brick wall. Also…

3 DAY MUSIC VIDEO CHALLENGE – DAY 3

This is the final day of my challenge set by my dear Rhapsody Bohème . We’re back to the 80s! The era of big hair-dos and fashion statements (hardly ever in a good way). I grew up in the 80s so it is bound to have influenced some of my taste. The carefree, often politically incorrect,…

3 DAY MUSIC VIDEO CHALLENGE – DAY2

Continuing with my challenge set by my dear Rhapsody Bohème , we’re moving on to day 2 with one of the few pop acts I follow. This song is called Good Enough, by British girlband Little Mix. It’s part of their second album (Salute) and was never released as a single so there isn’t a music video for…

3 DAY MUSIC VIDEO CHALLENGE – DAY1

I have been nominated by my beautiful soul sister Rhapsody Bohème to do her newly created 3 Day Music Video Challenge. It’s a good change since we’ve both done the originally set-up 3 Day, 3 Quote Challenge recently (click here for Day1, Day 2 and Day 3). My first song is called Tracks of My…

NOVEMBER PLAYLIST

A new month requires a new playlist. I am feeling more mellow than usual and the songs will show. Maybe a little too much heartbreak but I’m running with it as I do love the songs. As usual, I hope you enjoy my musical mood swings and random mind. Gravity – Sara Bareilles 2. Other Side…

HALLOWEEN PLAYLIST

This is Halloween, This is Halloween! I am singing, if you haven’t realised! A new month and a new playlist for you and it’s definitely not your standard Halloween playlist. Devils, psychos and darkness: yay!!! I’m not crazy but I do love these songs to bits! Enjoy!!! Dance with the Devil – Breaking Benjamin Mad…

PLAYLIST – SEPTEMBER 2016

As well as being a declared bookworm, I love music. It’s been part of my life since I can remember, even if my taste has drastically changed over the years and is nothing like my parents’. Maybe my mom’s but in their difficult marriage that is something else she muted herself on. I came home…
