Nothing Else Matters

It’s Music Monday!

Happy Monday! Last week, I celebrated living in the UK for 20 years. There’s a lot of music to go with those 20 years and a lot of songs vying for position as ‘top theme song’ to my life. In truth, however, there are many themes, and inevitably I’ve brought you a lot of those songs already.

However, this one is a fresh choice, and it is apt in many ways. For one, you know that I’m a sucker for deep, gravelly voices, long hair, and acoustic guitars. For another, the very chorus embodies a sentiment I’ve been holding on to for the longest time. And last but not least, it’s an all-time great rock song. And… well, nothing else matters, right?

Oooh I got goosebumps all over. How was it for you?

Last week, I promised you a series of classic rock song posts to mark the countdown to the launch of Sophie’s Run on 7 Feb. You know I keep my promises! Today, I have a rocking choice for you. Talk about one of the greatest opening riffs of all times! (Well, it’s in my top 10 at least).

Dum-dumm-dum-dum-duuuummmm-dum-dumm-dum-dum-duuuuuuum…. *Plays air guitar* Oh yes, I can see Darren and Dan play something like this (of their own, of course!) live on stage with Tuscq. Rock on, and enjoy.

What’s your favourite rock song opening? Or you could share your fave book opening line ~ I’m intrigued!
