Today, my final day of this month of Music was the last song I heard in the car. So for the last time, I give you…..
Tina Turner – I don’t wanna fight
Today is the first song we hear, but as M’s alarm is a piece of music I hear at the start of his day I thought I would discount that. So the first song I heard was this as I turned the ignition on in the car was…
Billy Ocean with Caribbean Queen
30 days of music, beatles, boys of summer, cadillac three, Challenge, divenire, don henley, eleanor rigby, i beg your pardon, i never promised you a rose garden, ludovico einaudi, lynn anderson, Music, peace love & dixie, yellow submarine

Ludovico Einaudi: Divenire
I have not been in the best of moods over the past few days. I have been quite down, depressed some may say. I woke on Wednesday and felt a huge black cloud/dark mood come over me, and it has nestled there ever since. Indeed, it is not as bad now as it has been, but all the same, it is still there. I cannot pinpoint as to why I am feeling like this, but needless to say, it has been all encompassing.
I have avoided my email box, my blog, and other things that I do day to day. I have even deleted this post several times with the thought of “who wants to read this? really?”, then started again.
It is a holiday weekend, the last of the summer, and usually, I would be planning days out and fun things to do, but I just do not have it in me, and when I try to force myself to get back into the holiday spirit I tell myself “I cannot be arsed” and “I don’t care”, and right at this moment I don’t care. I feel like getting into bed, crawling under the duvet and letting the world pass by until I am ready to tackle it. But life is not like that and I have a partner and two dogs who depend on me. I have responsibilities that I have to attend to, and there is no way around it, so I carry on regardless of the building dark cloud.
I am tired, exhausted really, irritable to the point of flares of anger. My heart problem (atrial fibrillation) is really playing up, waking me, erratically missing beats, speeding up, stopping for long pauses, then trying to catch up on itself again. Although I am used to this, it still causes discomfort and worry/stress. This time it is adding to my dark mood, but not causing it.
My youngest dog seems to sense I am down as she keeps sitting on or by me staring at me, but not in the annoying way Eddie stares at Frasier, it is as though she is trying to help and her stares are longing loving stares. My older dog is only concerned with food, so has no interest. I told M on Wednesday that I was really down, but I have not spoken further about it. I was brought up to keep my feelings to myself, and cannot change a lifetime of conditioning.
Like all thing, it will pass.
Today a song with [a] colour in the title. I have been a fan of David Sylvian since the 80’s. He has such a sorrowful tone to his voice, and his lyrics are at times pure poetry. This song some may know from “Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence” starring the late David Bowie and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto – Forbidden Colours
A song that I would have played at my wedding, well had our Civil Partnership in 2008, and did not have music as such. We had our ceremony in Liverpool Registry Office, which was very nice, then we had a small reception at PanAm restaurant, lots of champagne and great food, then to one of my local pubs that was built in 1320, and is still going strong, then home that evening. As for music, there was nothing specific, but if I had to pick a song for my wedding it would be this.
Lady Antebellum – Need You Now
A song from an artist that is no longer living. Where do I start, this post could go on forever after the loss of Prince, David Bowie, Chester Bennington, Kurt Cobain and much more. But today I will opt for Chris Cornell. I loved Soundgarden which he was the lead singer, and although Jesus Christ Pose was one of my favourite tracks, I thought I would go for the Bond theme he did for the 2006 version of Casino Royale.
Chris Cornell – You Know My Name
