Eurovision 2019

I’ll be honest, pop music is not my bag, but I do like to watch Eurovision each year as it is a good laugh, and every now and again there is a good song that year. Last night it was in Israel, and they put on a good show, that was until Madonna turned up…

30 Days of Music – Day 21

30 Days of Music – Day 20

Today’s challenge is a piece of music I would want at my Funeral. I love many requiems, but I think that may be a little long for most people, so my pick for my funeral is… Peace Of Akatosh by Jeremy Soule 30 days of musicakatoshChallengefuneraljeremy souleMusicpeace of akatosh
