It’s Music Monday!
Happy Monday, my friends! Today is a very special edition of Music Monday indeed. You see, I had a post all planned, written, and scheduled. All done and dusted. And then I went out with my husband on Saturday night. We had been invited by our new neighbours to come along and see a fabulous singer-songwriter, or so they said. We quite fancied a night out, so we went along with no particular expectation of anything, other than to be out and meet new friends.
Well, we were blown away by the singer-songwriter in question. His name is Paul Bell and he is simply fabulous. He played an acoustic set of beautifully lyrical songs with fabulous tunes, strong vocals and a wicked sense of humour. I chatted with Paul briefly afterwards…
…and yes, I begged an autograph! It’s a long time since I’ve done that, I can tell you. Hubby was well amused. Anyway, I chatted with Paul and gained his permission to post one of the songs that captivated me most for you right here, right now, today. I really encourage you to listen to it; every word has meaning, glorious, funny, totally true meaning, and it is What I Call Romance.
Find out more about Paul on his website! And now I’m keen to hear: what is your favourite line in this song? And do you have any local independent artists in your area who you think deserve to rise to the very top of the charts?
This song could have been written for you and your books, Nicky. What serendipity!
Isn’t it fab? Wonder if I could persuade Paul to write me a soundtrack…. albeit a rocky one?!? Thanks for visiting and glad you enjoyed! 🙂
I concede !!! 😦
You’ve gone and done it !!! 😦
You’ve come up with a song for which I can’t offer a song with a similar topic, simply because we don’t go out as much as we used to. 😦
There’s a local radio station we listen which does showcase a new local artist once a week, but unfortunately it will be almost impossible to post one of their songs because of possible infringement issues which we can’t do here.
Yet, I still feel I need to offer some sort of musical interlude, so on that note, I’d like to offer a relatively well-known song, simply entitled “SING” 🙂 🙂 🙂
Robin, bless ya, it’s not a competition! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed Paul’s song and I’m very glad to hear that you have a local radio station promoting new and indie acts. Without that kind of support, we’d be lost, all of us ~ musicians, artists, authors. Thanks for your musical return offering, great choice, as always. Rock on and…. until next week! XX
I never said it was a competition. I just love the musical mental exercise it gives me each week to rack my memory of all the songs I’ve heard in my lifetime, so to me it’s actually more of a challenge, but then again, a challenge is sort of a competition, so please accept my apologies, if I made it sound like one.
Anyway, in January I’ll be old enough to start collecting Social Security here in The States if I so choose. Writing has become a second career for me, which I’m sorry I didn’t start earlier, but at least I’m doing it now, and with any luck my first novel should be out before the end of the year.
Glad you liked my choice again for this week
ALL THE BEST

Aw, quit worrying sweetie! I’m all good and chilled at this end. And what else could I be with such glorious songs and suggestions! 🙂
