I knew I loved you

While this is a fabulous cheesy love song (and a fabulously cheesy rumba), I don’t want to write about love this evening. Instead, I want to reminisce about the time when Savage Garden was cool. And not ironically. When I was younger, we went around to my aunt and uncle’s house often; they lived nearby,Continue reading “I knew I loved you”

I’ll Find You

I’ll find you – jut hold on and I’ll find you. It’s been a difficult time for mental health, and that didn’t start with lockdown, but lockdown and things like social justice movements that take over the interwebs like Black Lives Matter have thrown things into quite stark relief. This song highlights the type ofContinue reading “I’ll Find You”

Radar Love

I think this was voted one of the best ever driving songs on the very scientific poll on Top Gear once, and I totally see why. It conjours some delicious connotations of driving off into the distance, especially framing driving as part of the joy – we want to enjoy not only the destination, butContinue reading “Radar Love”

Angels

“I sit and wait. Does an angel, contemplate my fate?” This is a definite throwback banger from being a tween and yowling along. I actually rather enjoy Robbie Williams’ take on music, particularly his old-school vibe – the tattooed Sinatra-act. The Sunday Sads are slowly creeping over me as I sit in the lounge, withContinue reading “Angels”

Perfect to Me

My sister is one of the best humans I know. She is kind, generous and caring, and has dealt with some challenging situations over the years, including a community service year for her degree, living in a run-down, cockroach-infested block of flats. (Later, I took over a toaster from her kitchen… complete with a smallContinue reading “Perfect to Me”

Superstition

Some great and interesting funk to flow over my Friday evening as I sit down for my daily habit. I’m also cranking out this blog as I wait for the next league on Path of Exile to start… a whole four minutes away at time of typing. I’ve been struggling with this weird form ofContinue reading “Superstition”

Dance with me tonight

Lades and gentlemen, we’ve got a special treat for you tonight… I do have a lot of wonderful upbeat jives I keep finding on this list, and well, I’m missing my dancing, so it’s giving me a chance to think through hip action, foot action, turns and balance. And partnering. Jive is a lot ofContinue reading “Dance with me tonight”

Let’s hear it for the boy

My human is the best human. I mean, I suppose all wives must be biased in favour of their husbands, but I look at my human every day and go “wow… how did I get this lucky?” The man has great hair, a great butt, a charming smile, a naughty sense of humour, and theContinue reading “Let’s hear it for the boy”
