Me again! Just a quick one!
I have always been a McFly fan and I’m not ashamed to admit it! In fact, a friend and I went to see them when we were 18 at Wembley Arena for one of those tours – and that was seven years ago! Wow, I’m old. Anyways, I am absolutely in love with their new song and I think you should love it too. Everyone loves a ukulele. The video’s pretty awesome too. Happy Friday
Er, as if I couldn’t put this as the song of my week this week!! Happy Hallowe’en, y’all!
Oh my God, I used to be obsessed with the Gorillaz. I think it was because I was a massive blur fan, so obviously, I followed Damon on his next adventure with the cartoon/holographic band. I absolutely loved their old stuff with Clint Eastwood and Rock Da House, however the other day on a drive back from Bristol, I was reminded of another epic track.
It’s DARE! Oh my days, I sang my heart out to this song, whilst racing down the M25! Yes, I did just type ‘oh my days’. Chavtastic. Listen and enjoy
Okay, a bit of an oldy this week. But I was caught doing this dance, sitting on the floor, when the music wasn’t playing… Yup, I’m that person. I hope this is the right version, as I have no speakers…
So I thought I’d share our holiday in Spain song with you! On our first night, we were watching the Olympics in a bar and they had all these old songs playing. Including that of Simon Webbe.
Cue: excessive humming, whistling, singing of this song for the rest of the holiday! I completely love holiday songs; our last one on Jay’s family holiday was Loco in Acapulco by The Four Tops! We’s some cool kids…
I actually think this song is apt about my life at the moment, as I’m making some drastic changes to my life. It’s scary, but I know everything will be alright in the end So, without further delay, I bring to you Simon Webbe (that dude from boyband, Blue – remember them!?) and that song he did called ‘No Worries’. Hope you had a lovely bank holiday!
By the time you’ll be reading this, I’ll be on a sun lounger, topping up my tan Thank God for scheduling posts! I have taken my iPad with me on hol, so you’ll still see me on Instagram (@frannooooo) and Twitter (@frannooooo), so I’ll still be around technologically.
I’ve had this particular song in my head for about a week now and it’s driving me insane! It reminds me of being about 14 or 15 and being obsessed with Kerrang! (yes, I was one of those kids… Typically driving my Mum around the bend!)
As it happens, it’s not the worst song I have ever listened to and got stuck in my head. So now, I’m doing you guys the favour of getting it stuck in your’s Here’s OPM with ‘Heaven is a Halfpipe’. Apologies for the bad language!
EVERYBODY NOW! If I die before I wake… At least in heaven I can skate…
This song was number one when I was born. And it’s appropriate for this week.
I’M GOING ON HOLIDAY THIS WEEKEND!! WOOOOOOO!!
We all got a little bit emotional watching the Olympics opening ceremony. My Dad was massively patriotic and we probably would’ve had something equally as British, like we used to have our annual BBQ parties. Instead, we all got a little too drunk in the pub…
This song reminds me of my Dad. It’s quite an unusual choice, considering his collection of The Rolling Stones, The Who and Pink Floyd! It reminds me of when we were holidaying in Crete (one of our annual family holidays) and we found a karaoke bar. The thing is, the guy who chose this song was completely hammered, so we all ended up helping him out in the bar and singing along at the top of our voices! It was one of those moments where we were laughing our heads off and singing along. Every time we went in that bar, someone would be doing karaoke badly and we’d all have to help them out. And every time we went in that bar, Dad would always ask me if I wanted to sing Summer Lovin’ from Grease with him! The answer was always no which, looking back now, I kind of hate but appreciate that I was a teenager and I didn’t want to do karaoke with anyone…
But here we have it. One of the happiest songs that remind me of my Dad Happy Thursday; it’s nearly the weekend!!
It seems only fitting that, this week, my song of the week is by Amy Winehouse. I can’t believe it’s been a year since she’s passed, it’s so completely mad! Although not a huge massive devoted fan, I enjoyed her music and, when I heard about her death, I actually felt really upset. I don’t know, it just seemed to have affected me more than I thought it would.
I’ve chosen the song that I really like and one that I think shows off her true singing and writing abilities. After all, it is her music that keeps her alive and all that. It reminds me of working in Plymouth Pavilions as a lifeguard, with all the songs playing around. This was one that was played quite frequently. It’s lovely that that was in fact a happier time in my life, working with all my friends who I don’t see much of anymore because they still live down there or are somewhere else around the world.
So, for your listening and viewing pleasure, I bring you my Song of the Week: Tears Dry On Their Own by Amy Winehouse.
This week, it’s something a little more modern. At the weekend, I was hooked on watching the Isle of Wight festival. I am a huge fan of live music (and a massive rock chick at heart!) and Jay had decided that watching festivals from the comfort of our sofa was the best way of watching festivals. Wrong. I really want to go to the Isle of Wight festival, please. I just completely love the whole environment and people enjoying the same music as you love and stuff. It’s hard to explain, but if you haven’t been to a festival, go to one
Anyways. We were watching and pushed the red button to see the highlights and up popped Caro Emerald who I had heard of but actually didn’t know any of her music. It’s hard to explain, it sounds really really old school, I guess. I suppose that’s the best thing about watching festivals on the telly; you get to discover a whole bunch of different people that you wouldn’t have gone to watch before and you get to see everyone you want to see without worrying about timing collisions!
I downloaded “Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor” and I have been addicted to ‘A Night Like This’ from the album. So have some food for your ears and listen away
