Mellow Mondays! Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears For Fears

This has always been a gem in my books – I’ve always been a massive fan of 80s music. I’m quite lucky because this is on work’s store playlist so get to listen to it almost every day – in full I have to add. I don’t seem to get sick of it; maybe it’s me but yeah – I’m trying not to ramble.

I love the meaning behind this song, and how it is often missed because of the beat. I get lost on the internet most evenings for hours, researching song meanings and how songs are connected or sampled between artists.

Recently, I was told I have an interesting and extensive knowledge of music. I mean I think everyone at work hates the fact I can name song title and artist to almost every song that plays at work, and my dad find’s it funny when we watch ‘Guess that song’ videos – He’s impressed at the fact I can name most songs after the first second.

I’m tangenting again, but enjoy!

Mellow Mondays! Lovers’ Carvings – Bibio

Only a short post today because I am shattered from work. I love this song a lot, and it is one of the main reasons I bought a kindle all those years ago – Sad I know, but I practically begged my dad to get me one. I love the fact that the song in itself is two individual tracks smooshed together, but I love both halves – the mellow feel of the first part and the upbeat rhythm in the second half.

Will update soon – I say ‘soon’ but my schedule is ram packed, plus I have an assignment due that I haven’t even glanced at.

Happy New Year!

I’ve been a tad MIA – I say a tad, but it’s almost 2 weeks into the new year and this is my first post, but who’s keeping tabs.

2017 became my 3rd yeard blogging on this platform, so I decided to collate some figures in regards to my year on WordPress, and I was pleasantly surprised. Over the year, this blog received a total of 649 views from and 134 likes, 378 visitors in 35 countries.

I’m proud to be honest. Last year I upped my game when it came to blogging. I tried to put a lot more effort into my blog, I attempted new things and new features. Some worked, and some fizzled out, but in all, it was an eye-opening experience.

I won’t make this a long post – I’m currently in my bed suffering from my second cold this month and I’m feeling a bit shit. I’ll probably spend the rest of the day procrastinating revision even though I have 2 assignments due this month. But lest we digress.

I’ll schedule the first Mellow Monday for the year and start typing up a few ideas to make sure this year of blogging is even better than the last!
