Wouldn't it be fun to terrorise the All Blacks rugby team at their next English confrontation by allowing Morris Dancers to respond to their Haka?

I always appreciate time others take to compile a video of photo stills depicting their own version of a popular song and this one by Julian Lennon is a excellent example.  First out in the late 90's, the message here in Saltwater still reflects on society today.

It may be a bit long, but I love this Dogma soundtrack song.  There are lyrics and a rather moving video to this (some-one must have spent days compiling it). People either love her or hate her but she's my choice this Monday.  Here's Alanis Morissette  with Still.  Happy Music Monday.

Tuesday's Tune


This week I'm focusing on a recent song that was entered into 2013's Eurovision Song Contest.  Yes, we Europeans take our music seriously. Well, actually, we don't, as it's all dogged by political rigging but - hey - this song from Malta by Gianluca never fails to cheer me up.  It didn't win but should have.  I'm popping up two videos of the same song. One lyrics and one the official video. Within the first 30 seconds I was hooked.  Hope it stirs a little something in you, too!

and if you like shiny happy people - go for this one:

Tuesday Tunes


This week's  ♫ Tuesday Tune ♫ choice was a no brainer!  In gratitude and respect of helping raise a huge heap of cash (still counting - final sum-to-come!) for a Children For Lourdes charity (more info thisaway.) I give you No Need For Idols with their classic hit Wasted City.



Those who can be arsed to sift down my blogs' sidebars to get the gist of just how stable and mature I am, will have noticed other songs by the same band from time to (all the) time. Please give the song at least a bit of a listen. It's really a pretty decent little rock ballad.

  The NNFI  guys study, work, write and rehearse hard then make magical, musical gestures by way of charity and awareness gigs. They perform each Christmas in Scotland's only woman's prison too. Truth be known I'm proud of them and I'm the Mumma of the Drumma. Here's the guy's from Saturday in the stadium before it all kicked off!

 
                No Need For Idols sporting their new shorter hair cuts!  If you're a Facebooker, it'd be nice if you could give the guys Bandpage a 'Like' without the need to follow.  It would pass as a bitsy little round of appreciative applause Emoji ....thanxz.... Emoji..!

Tuesday Tunes

I've decided on upping two videos for Tuesday Tunes - one  American, the other British, whose artists I listen to the most. I may slip in other 'worldly' tunes from time to time. So, for my 6th linkup I have chosen these songs:

Cool by Gwen Stefani, covering the delicate nature of still loving an ex.  Gee, that bloke has thee most gorgeous eyes!





That's City Life by Lily Allen. I love the humour video in this, depicting the world through rose tinted specs, only to admit to what you're actually seeing!

Tuesday Tunes (5)

For My 5th visit to Tuesday Tunes, I'm gonna double up bit. 

My first song is Need You Now by Lady Antebellum. The harmonies are so soul stirring.




My second choice is a bit cheeky as it's my older son's band. A few years old now the track The High by Hotel India is a upbeat anthem played in a lot of gardens during barbeques and cars with their windows down. My son's the drummer!

Tuesday's Tune this week comes from The Posies with Love Comes.  I lifted the wrong iPod on my way to work and while scrolling through my son's HUGE variety of music was delighted to hear this one, which I was kinda glad of because my ears were on the verge of bleeding!

Anyhow - I picked the best Youtube version.  Hope you like it and please join in by clicking on the Tuesday Tunes pic in my sidebar.
