Bluetonic

Well, hello there, Fri-Yay! It’s time to bring up the tempo a little from yesterday’s ambient piece since it’s the weekend for many of you (and a long Thanksgiving weekend for those of you south of the Canada/USA border). So, let’s go! This morning, I listened to Sean Keaveny’s early Friday afternoon (in the UK)Continue reading “Bluetonic”

Space Oddity

During my morning routine from around 7:00 to 9:00 (Central time in Canada), I like to have a random, unknown music mix playing. But among the radio stations I listen to online, mainly KEXP Seattle and BBC 6 Music, there isn’t usually anything on that appeals to me for that time of day. The MorningContinue reading “Space Oddity”

Round and Round

Happy Friday! It feels like the weather has suddenly changed. When I set off on my bike this morning, it was just 7°C (44°F). It stayed on the cold side through the ride, so I was wearing some extra clothing to keep warm. It felt good to be moving after a few days off theContinue reading “Round and Round”

Other People

LP (born Laura Pergolizzi) is an American singer/songwriter who has written songs for artists including Christine Aguilera, Mylène Farmer and Céline Dion. Those aren’t favourite artists of mine, and I admit that had I known this before hearing her, I might have given her a pass-by — a reminder toContinue reading “Other People”

The Joke

I didn’t start this blog to highlight news of the day; far from it. If anything, it’s about reflecting on memories that music evokes in me. But today’s song has been on my “to do” pile for since first purchasing it. It was one of the 25 songs I shopped for a few weeks ago,Continue reading “The Joke”

Factory

Hearing this song reminds me of riding home in the car on a mini road trip when one of our boys drove my sweety and me to an extended family dinner outside Winnipeg. While I like driving, I enjoyed being in the back seat that night after a long walk in the afternoon and thenContinue reading “Factory”

Mother Fighter

When I went through my Shazam app earlier this month I bought 25 tracks all in one go, each of them by different artists. Some of them I heard on either BBC 6 Music programs (in the addition to Guy Garvey’s Finest Hour, I often listen to Amy Lamé, Tom Robinson, frequent Garvey sit-in CillianContinue reading “Mother Fighter”

Dietro Casa

Whenever I hear a new-to-me piece of music that catches my attention, I seek out the title/artist using the Shazam app, and then refer back to the saved titles on the app when going on the modern, online equivalent of my 70s record shopping trips (see post on “Orpheus,” January 13, 2020, for more onContinue reading “Dietro Casa”
