They lose so much of their childhood while they lay in hospital beds receiving treatment. Truly Brave is a combination of Lauper’s True Colours and Bareilles’ Brave. It has been used …

Midweek Music: Hymn to Her

I can remember when Hymn to Her was first released by The Pretenders back in 1986. I stumbled across this cover of the song thanks to my friend Cathy (from Most of us Need the Eggs) sharing it on Facebook recently. I think these five voices combine to create something quite beautiful. This version of Hymn to …

Midweek Music: Root Beer Rag by Billy Joel

This song never fails to make me smile. A friend and his son played it as a duet at a friend’s wedding and it was just the most joyful thing – smiles all around from the performers and the audience. My daughter has been learning to play it on the piano and I have loved …

Literary References in Song Lyrics

Driving to school to pick my children up this afternoon, Michael Penn’s ‘No Myth’ came on the radio. This song always takes me back to the year after I finished high school. My best friend and I loved the song and hearing it reminds me of listening to it and other favourites while we hooned …

Sunday Session: 25th September 2011

I’m joining in the Sunday Session meme hosted by Thea of Do I Really Wanna Blog? Thea’s changed the rules since I last took part, but since there now no rules, I guess it won’t matter that I’m following the old pattern of one older and one newer track. On Friday, I attended a funeral …

Sunday Session: 10th July 2011

I was listening to Bon Jovi in the car today and had to giggle, as I always do, at the introduction to Living on a Prayer. I love the song, but can’t help but smile when I picture the big hair rock band playing the finger cymbals. Somehow they just don’t seem to fit with …
