Beautiful trauma

P!NK finally released new music!! And it was worth the wait.

According to my kids my taste in music is merely a selection of 80’s music and P!nk. But we know that’s not true…Or is it?

Anyhow, I will repost a better version of BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA, as soon as it is available.  This “dance” version is just plain weird.

Run Silent Run Deep

It’s been almost two months since my last post.  Shocking, is it not?

What’s even worse is the moment when I realised that I have not posted one of my ALL TIME GREATEST songs on this blog.  What kind of person am I becoming!  This song hails from the eighties, obviously, because that’s when all the great music was recorded.  Did you know that every time you listen to an eighties song it makes you a better person?

SHAKESPEARES SISTER is probably better known for their hit song Stay, but I simply love how their voices work together on the lyrics of RUN SILENT.  I still can’t get enough of this song and the sadness of the group breaking up, more than 20 years ago.  The duo only released two albums because the ladies couldn’t get along.  *insert gif of two cats fighting in a mud pit*

Enjoy and you’re welcome.

What about us

I’ve edited this post to include the video that was released today.  I wonder what the reaction is going to be on this video…let’s just say it’s thought provoking.

It’s been a long time coming. Five years and counting. But the night is drawing to a close. Dawn is breaking on 13 October 2017 when the always awesome P!NK drops her new album called, Beautiful Trauma.  I simply. Cannot. Wait. Any longer.

It’s a follow up of her 2012 critically acclaimed album, The truth about love.  What’s remarkable is that this is only her seventh album, even though her library of songs will put most other artists to shame.

Like most of her previous songs, WHAT ABOUT US, which dropped today, this one also sounds to be like an anthem of note.  And who can blame her, a lot of things has changed in five years…

Let’s welcome her back with a great song!

Skildery

I’m sorry, it’s another post featuring an Afrikaans song but on my way to work, I was killing this tune in my own version of carpool karaoke.  And don’t worry there was no-one else in the car, as it only happened after I dropped my kids at school, so there were no teenagers harmed during my performance.

I’m not even sure why I like the song so much.  Maybe it’s the lyrics, or her voice, or maybe because she’s not ugly to look at.  I suspect it’s a combination of everything because I’m not shallow.  I think…

So here is NADINE performing SKILDERY which is a song about a woman who wants to paint her feelings for a guy, on a blank canvas.  Ironically, she ends up being the woman covered in paint, in this video.  (Wife was a little annoyed about the fact that they ruined a perfectly nice dress in the making thereof.)

Nothing compares 2 U (#OriginalMyAss #8)

This one is for my daughter on her birthday, if only because nothing compares to her. No other human being.  Nothing. On. Earth.  Zip. Zero. Nada.  So have a happy birthday my Princess!

SINEAD O’CONNOR was the first woman to win an MTV award for the video of her performing NOTHING COMPARES 2 U in 1990.  Never has a face been so important than in this video.  The song was first recorded by the songwriter, Prince, for one of his side projects, The Family, on their first and only album in 1987.

It remains one of the best break-up songs ever recorded in the history of man and fortunately for all of us mortals, he gave the song to one of the few women who looks good without hair.

You can find the original recording of the song here.
