Day 30! #30DayMusicChallenge 

By | August 20, 2017

I know I’ve taken over 30 consecutive days to complete this but it has been a lot of fun, in between raiding my memory bank for things I’d buried. The last song(s) are ones I can really identify with: “Read All About It” just speaks to me as a blogger.  I’m not a “look at […]

Day 29 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 19, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song That You Remember From Your Childhood”. I have to admit that I’ve thought and thought and thought a bit more about this and couldn’t remember any, which is sad really because we always have a music channel on here when there’s not a great deal on TV but hey ho. […]

Day 28 of 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 18, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song By An Artist Who’s Voice That You Love”. Regular readers of my blog will know that I’m a fan of 80’s music and regularly feature these both on this challenge and in my posts. I’ve decided to feature a song by two artists, Shakespeare’s Sister, Stay: Yep, in true J-style, […]

Day 27 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 17, 2017

I have to admit, I ground to a bit of a halt over the prompt for Day 27. “A Song That Breaks Your Heart” It took me to places that I didn’t particularly want to visit, those of being 17 and thinking I’d found “The One”, of suddenly becoming a single parent with a three […]

Day 25 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 29, 2017

A really funny one for today’s prompt, which is “A Song By An Artist Now Longer Living”. Out of all the celebrity deaths last year, I think I found Victoria Wood’s, George Micheal’s, Prince’s and David Bowie’s most shocking.   People I’d grown up either listening to or watching and it’s a reminder that you […]

Day 24 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 28, 2017

The end is in sight! It’s Day 24 of the Music Challenge and the prompt is “A Band/Group You Wish Were Still Together”. You may think I’d say Ultravox, but that would be too obvious, I could also have said Big Country but I don’t think anyone could replace Stuart Adamson, so I’m going for: […]

Day 23 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 27, 2017

Today’s prompt is “A Song That You Think Everyone Should Listen To”. My choice isn’t so much the song vocals-wise but the most amazing sax playing.  I want to be able to play just a smidgen of this music one day, it’s fantastic.  The song is Will You by Hazel O’Connor and it’s from the film Breaking Glass, […]

Day 22 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 26, 2017

Today’s prompt is: “A Song That Motivates You”. My choice is a song that D and I love to sing along to, it also motivates me and can make me quite angry at the same time. Everything Counts reminds me that we are all budget figures on a spreadsheet, impersonal numbers that don’t take into account […]

30 Day Music Challenge – Day 21 

By | July 25, 2017

Apologies, I went a bit AWOL and, rather than do four “days” in one post, I’ll carry on with daily. The children are on school holidays now and that, combined with the fact that my operation (2 of 3) is now less than four weeks away has sent me into a bit of a tailspin! […]

A Trophy and 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | July 21, 2017

It’s been the last day of term for both T and D today, quite possibly the last school bus trip with the coach company who are making life extremely difficult for pupils who use their service and it’s also been a day when D rushed home, full of smiles, clutching this:  A “Musician Of The Year” award […]
