I think that the Eurovision Song Contest passed me by this weekend (I don’t have a TV!). I read that we got… 0 points, which doesn’t really tell us whether it was a good song or not! Anyway, let’s reminisce about the good times… Have a great week!
We’ve had animals… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/05/07/five-songs-with-in-the-title/ Place names… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/05/14/five-songs-with-placenames-in-the-title/ Today, it’s people’s names… Sutherland Brothers and Quiver Arms of Mary Bat for Lashes Daniel Ray Lamontagne Hannah Kenny Rogers Lucille The Front Lawn Andy Did you enjoy? Were you already familiar with any of today’s songs? What will next week bring?
It’s time for something special! It’s time for a song that, if you need to just sit back for a while, distance yourself from the buzz, furore and chaos of life and just… chill, then let your ears and mind sooth to this… Staralfur by Sigur Ros ladies and gentlemen… gorgeous! Have a great week!
Following on from animals… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/05/07/five-songs-with-in-the-title/ This week it’s placenames… Scott McKenzie San Francisco Fleet Foxes Blue Ridge Mountains Dan Croll Tokyo Boo Hewerdine Ontario Darren Hayes Dublin Sky I’m sure that I’m not the only person to have noticed that, for some reason, American cities and states lend themselves to songs better than others. I’veContinue reading “Five Songs With Placenames in the Title”
Another week, another song. This time the music comes from… I had a couple of their earlier (And I think reasonably commercially successful) albums but can’t claim to have listened to this band for some time. This new song however sounds exactly like a… Kings of Convenience song! I enjoyed it and hope that youContinue reading “Song of the Week #016”
Not content with my Five Films… selections or/and Song of the Week, I now present… Five Songs With ? in the Title!

Song of the Week this week comes courtesy of James Carr! I’ve long loved ‘At the Dark End of the Street’ but clicked on this the other day. It’s obviously a song that’s been covered many times but I do like Mr Carr’s effort… Who will be selected next week?
Not sure how I stumbled across Charley Crockett. Just good old YouTube recommendations I think. He’s got some goods songs and this is one of them… Click on the music tab at the bottom of my main page to find all my previous selections. Have a great week!
Another week, another song! This time it’s the turn of… Shania… does she need a second name? The weather is perking up here in the UK (Though my car is unwell!) so with that… have a great week!
This week, I was pleasantly surprised to discover new music by… I randomly picked up The Best Of a good few years ago and since bought another compilation titled The Collection. I had the pleasure of seeing frontman Justin Currie perform in my hometown and it was as good a gig as I’ve seen! HopefullyContinue reading “Song of the Week #012”
