Musical Monday: Haim

This week I’m turning to a trio of kick-ass ladies for inspiration. Haim (life in Hebrew) is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles comprising three sisters: Este Haim (bass guitar and vocals), Danielle Haim (lead vocals, guitar, and drums) and Alana Haim (guitars,… Continue Reading “Musical Monday: Haim”

Musical Monday: Gregory Porter

The last couple of weekends we’ve profited from some of the local free or very inexpensive open-air concerts. This evening we’re off to Jazz at Juan to see a couple of artists including the one I’m featuring here. All this evening’s audience will be… Continue Reading “Musical Monday: Gregory Porter”

Musical Monday: Raise Vibration

I pretty consistently wake up feeling enthusiastic and ready to conquer the day, which means my vibrations are soaring high. On the other hand, if you’re feeling bored, stuck, and generally blasé, then chances are your vibrations are low and maybe this song will… Continue Reading “Musical Monday: Raise Vibration”

Song Lyric Sunday #45

This week’s prompt for Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge is Greet/Hey/Howdy. Lighting on the “Hey” I immediately thought about one of my fave songs by one of my fave artists, oft featured here. In my book, you can’t have too much Lenny. Thinking… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #45”

Song Lyric Sunday #44

This week’s prompt for Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge is Old/ New/ Borrowed/ Blue – a wedding theme perhaps? In fact I immediately thought of White Wedding by Billy Idol. Quite possibly not what was intended by the prompt, but never mind! Billy… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #44”

Alicia… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #43”

Song Lyric Sunday #42

This week’s prompt is a comparison between two songs, but which two shall I choose in response to Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge? Probably, two different versions of the same song, but which one? When in doubt, my default is always to pick… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #42”

Song Lyric Sunday #41

This week’s prompt is Elevator Music, but what is it? It’s a more general term indicating music that is played in rooms where many people come together (that is, with no intention whatsoever to listen to music), and during telephone calls when placed on… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #41”

Song Lyric Sunday #40

This week’s prompt is Heaven/Hell. So what do I have in my musical archives in response to Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge? There are loads of possibilities but I’m plumping for Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. Savage Garden was an Australian pop… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #40”

Song Lyric Sunday #39

This week’s prompt is Fix/Make. So what do I have in my musical archives in response to Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge? I’m thinking how about She Drives Me Crazy by Fine Young Cannibals. Fine Young Cannibals were a British rock band from… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #39”
