This Time I Fear There’s No One To Turn To

Jim has asked us to pick songs that feature words along the lines of fear, horror and terror. Fear will do me. I’m picking a track that I think is fantastic. Lewis Capaldi does not come across as a bloke who could write a heart breaking song. But he did, and it was a hit,…

It’s A Beautiful Day To Waste Away

I was trying to remember a song that I had stuck in my head, driving myself crazy because I cannot find it on any of my playlists. Jim has picked “beautiful” amongst today’s theme words for Song Lyric Sunday. I sing the chorus line to a song I have heard my whole life…and now I…

Let’s Waste Time Chasing Cars

Jim has asked for car songs today, which brought to mind one of my favourite songs. Gary Lightbody said it was the “purest love song” he had ever written. I think it is a pure love song. I don’t ask anything else of a love song really. Just wanting to be with someone with whom…

Looking For Heaven

I’ll Fix It For Us

Jim asked us to pick a song with either fix or make in it. Avoiding the obvious Coldplay track, I decided to go with Pink. She’s been a phenomenon on the music scene and she has a legacy of impactful songs. This is probably my favourite from Pink. I vividly remember it coming on the…
