One of the things I love to do is listen to music when I’m on the bus. Sitting on the top deck with my earplugs in watching the world go by with music in the back ground can almost make me believe I’m starring in a British rom com, and that at any moment Colin Firth might stumble up the stairs and sit beside me in a slightly flustered but incredibly endearing way! Ok, maybe thats taking it a bit far but I do love having a sound track to the streets and scenes I’m passing through.
Having recently read (and reviewed) The Music Room by Rachel Joyce I have found myself enjoying music more recently. This weekend I thought I would share with you my current favourite summer musical choices and the music I will be listening to as I potter in the kitchen the garden or even when sitting on the bus.
Deacon Blue are a band of my youth and definitley take me back to carefree summer days. Me and my now husband, a yellow 2CV and Raintown nby Deacon Blue on the tape player (yes tape player). I first saw them at the UEA more years ago than I care to remember and still love their sound. I’m enjoying their latest recording, Live at the Glasgow Barrowlands which features lots of the best loved songs from Raintown. Dignity is one of my husbands all time favourite songs. I’m also just a little bit excited about seeing them live at Car Fest later this summer.
We are spending this weekend with friends who between them have some eclectic musical tastes. As someone who is often behind the musical curve I often come away with a new musical discovery, and I’m looking forward to hearing whats played being played from their respective playlists as we hopefully bask in sunshine sipping gin and tonics! Its glasto weekend too, so hopefully we might catch a bit of that via the BBC!
I would love your music suggestions too, do let me know of any new discoveries or old favourites.
Have a great weekend.
