This weeks track is Dolly Parton and ‘9 to 5’ – I just can’t help but to dance and sing along when this song comes on! A sure-fire mood lifter and booty mover. If you’re feeling glum on a Monday morning, whack this on and sing about your work-woes whilst making yourself smile!
PS – Clare’s choice of track is particularly relevant at the moment…we have both been so busy working that our blog posts are slowing down a little bit, we hope to be back up to full speed soon!
Girls, you know you better…watch out… This weeks track is ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ by Lauryn Hill, from her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. This album is one of my favourites of all time, it was … Continue reading →
My favourite Paolo Nutini song ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’ is this weeks throwback track, from back in 2006. This guy was just 18 when he released his first album, These Streets, and I loved the rhythm, lyrics and overall vibe of this song, which led to me playing it over and over again.
And 9 years later, I still know all the words! Ha, what a loser. Anyway, I don’t care, it’s a great track and the kind of song that you wish someone had written about you. Or maybe I just have a thing for younger men…
Happy New Year everyone! A quick post just to say hi, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Really looking forward to 2015…but with new beginnings, you must always look back before you move forward.
Bobby and I have started a new tradition each year, a goldfish bowl filled with notes, tickets, flyers, sayings and memories that we place in the bowl throughout the year and look through on New Year’s Eve to reminisce on the year just gone.
My stand out moment from 2014 was the Arcade Fire gig we went to at Earl’s Court in the Summer. Hands down, best gig I’ve ever been to (even beating Prince earlier in the year…whaaaaaaat?). So for my New Year’s throwback track it’s got to be one of theirs, and it was not easy picking one let me tell you! And so here it is, ‘Ready To Start’ a great choice to mark the new beginning of the 1st of January.
May your year be all you hoped for, sending blessings and remember, stop complaining and start changing.
