Trying Not To Love You

It’s Music Monday!


Welcome back! The half term has ended in these parts, it’s Halloween week and also…it’s launch week for me (again!)!!!

There are so many themes I could explore with my song choice, but somehow, this number did it for me today. It fits with my upcoming surprise novella in the widest sense, in that ‘Trying Not To Love You’ is something that my hero, Jude, is kind of telling himself… but also, it’s a really cool video. Trust me on this one, it’s worthwhile watching. It’s a little piece of art, and the ending made me smile. I do love it when a band has a great sense of humour! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy! 😉

Now then. How was it for you?

Before you go…

Rock on!

Hey, hey, I want to be a rock star….

Welcome to a late edition of Music Monday! Let’s call it…

Yup, I gave up yesterday’s customary Music Monday slot to a fabulous guest post by the amazing Talli Roland–I hope you enjoyed!! But I still wanted to share with you my song of the week.

This one is highly appropriate, totally topical and just fantastic. Why did it come to the forefront of my mind at this particular time? Oooh, I don’t know. Probably something to do with finishing the absolutely rockin’ masterplan for Book #3 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy. Or mabye something to do with finishing proofing Sophie’s Turn, Book #1… Or maybe it’s just… I don’t know, something from deep within my psyche, hee hee!

What do I love about this song? Let’s see. I love the mellow rock tune, the very anthem potential underpinned by somewhat cynical lyrics. Totally up my street!

So, I want you all to join in in the spirit of the video: let’s hear it!

What’s your favourite line in this song? Do you have any favourite cynical, satirical or downright funny favourite songs? Protest songs, perhaps? Let’s have them!
