Sharing Sounds

It’s been a difficult few weeks… Few? Actually, I went out with my camera today for the first time in 4 months! I hope to share some shots from that very stunted outing, as I did my best to obey the revised lockdown requirements, with you later this week. However, I have spent some time sharing sounds with my Son and I’m going to share a couple of songs that he didn’t like very much. The overarching reason may have been that they were too sad although the first is perhaps too poignant a commentary on relationships. Here’s Peter Hammill…

And this one from Marillion was ahead of the game about climate change – it brings a tear to my eye every time and had the same effect on Alasdair…….This terrible pandemic experience has given us a moment of pause, a chance to understand the effect our activites have on our planet and on our future as a species. We have the opportunity to fully understand and to step back from the precipice.  I just hope we take it!

Sharing Sounds

I shared Blowin’ Cool by Swervedriver with Alasdair a few months back. He now tells me that he’s been listening to a lot of other tracks by them 🙂 If you are of a ‘no loud music’ disposition, don’t play the track. If you want to hear some interesting lyrics then you’ve come to the right place… I think the words ‘Without a watch you get to know the time – is right for crime…’ are so telling – an excellent track – Enjoy 🙂

I’ve shared a number of pieces of music from my Son with you as he finds his way in the world (along with some of my own faves). But tonight I’m sharing a track from one of my Virtual Trucking friends 🙂 Enjoy this wonderful music… …It’s true to say that music crosses language barriers – that’s just lovely!
