Total eclipse of the heart

I couldn’t resist the temptation and besides it was either this or a song about a dying dragon.  And I couldn’t find the latter.  Besides, it’s #1 on iTunes right  now…

Enjoy BONNIE TYLER with TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART.

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.

Leave out all the rest

I was shocked to hear about the tragic death of Chester Bennington, who for those of you don’t know, is the frontman of Linkin Park.  One of my favourite bands, even though there last record sucked…

I don’t normally get caught up with celebrities and their lives but there has been moments where I would sit back in disbelief about tragedies like this one.  Another one that blew me out of the water was the death of Robin Williams.

LINKIN PARK has been making amazing music for more than a decade, an most of it occurred outside of the Transformer movie series.  My opinion might not mean anything to most people but I think we have lost, not only a great voice, but an amazing talent.

You will me missed but your music will live on forever. RIP.

To honour the memory of a legacy left behind, I’m posting LEAVE OUT ALL THE REST.
