I have happiness in my heart and a thorn in my soul

25 songs – day 4


A song that calms me down, well, not much to say about this one really. It’s a lovely song and i love the way this man plays guitar.


25 songs – Day 3


A song that reminds me of my parents. Tricky, I consider myself to have two sets of parents really: my Mother and Stepfather, and my Grandparents who are no longer with us. But I will stick to the more traditional definition and go with my Mum and Stepdad, and this is their song.

25 songs in 25 days


Day 2 – a song that reminds me of my most recent ex. Ha. Yikes. It was a ridiculously long break up really, it was all kind of tragic. Such is what happens when you walk away before love dies.



Glen Hansard – Falling Slowly

When I thought about today’s mood this was the song that had to be listened to. I absolutely love Glen Hansard, and this song reaches into my guts and twists them all about like only a handful of songs can do (crash into me, hello)

Overkill acoustic – Colin Hay

Today’s mood is much lighter than yesterday’s, and this video is so lame it’s kind of adorable. I’ve chosen to be happier today, it’s working thus far.


9 Crimes – Damien Rice

When a song captures your mood and you listen to it a hundred times over, this is where I am.


Damien Rice – The Professor

You know when a song captures your mood on something or someone, a situation passed. I find this insightful and melodic, it helped me get over one of the worst depressions i experienced from a break up.


Oh dear, it’s all gone to shit

I clear my throat, correct my pose

I stand before the rows and rows

Of people as they take their seats

Expectations am I meant to meet

The voice that leaves my body

Is not the one I know

Oh no! This is so painful

The time, it starts to slow

I hit a note but then I’m off

I cannot find my key

Everyone is staring, anywhere else I’d rather be

But I am here and it’s begun

I really have no choice

I’m spluttering this song along

I cannot find my voice

It turns out singing with the flu, is not the wisest things to do

But between just you and I

It was fun to have a try
