#MusicMonday – Week 10

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and with Saint Patrick’s Day coming up, I decided to feature one of my favorite Irish songs performed by an all woman group.

Celtic Woman – Siúil a Rún

I blame my love for this song entirely on my sister’s infatuation with Michael Flatley, just so you all know. Here’s the version that got me hooked:

Performed by Anne Buckley

#MusicMonday – Week 8

I’m not usually a fan of country music, but this song has sentimental value. Also, it’s an interesting take. Most of us think of a story as something that happens, but sometimes…it’s what might’ve happened, that is the real story. Here, Doug Stone sings the story of a man and all the ways his life might’ve gone, if he hadn’t been “Too Busy, Being in Love.”

#MusicMonday – Week 7

I decided to go with something fun this week.

My love for stories set to music stems from the album, “…from the ‘Hungry i’ ” by The Kingston Trio. I cannot tell you how many times I listened to that record, but I can tell you we had to replace needle at least once. This particular song…yeah, I’m not going to spoil the story. Listen and laugh.

At least it’s on brand…

#MusicMonday – Week 6

Honestly, I’m not a fan of Frank Ocean. His voice isn’t my cup of tea, but when I started hunting for love songs, I was pointed in his direction. I picked this particular song because, not only does it drop hints at an interesting story, it also references a movie I’m pretty sure we can all agree is iconic: Forrest Gump. I just wish there was a music video to go with it…

There seems to be an argument over whether this song is telling the story from Jenny’s POV, or if it’s Frank using the imagery to talk about the man he was in love with as a youth. Personally, I have to wonder if it’s a mix between the two. Take a listen/read and tell me what you think?
