Good day inmates!

Happy hump day whatever that means! How’s your week going so far? All good I hope. Not bored of the holiday season yet? I may be a little bit I confess. The music is getting to me, I swear. You can only hear Slade or Mariah Carey a handful of times before brain cells start dying. I’m a scrooge, I can’t help it! Hope all of you are having a nice time anyway!

So, let’s talk about music that won’t murder your minds, the Harlequins writing music! I’m never a scrooge about that! Did anybody see the clue to the theme this time? I know I ask every time, but I’m always curious. I was quite happy with this one.

Well, todays musical theme today is instrumentals! You know, music doesn’t always have to include a vocalist to be memorable or entertaining. Far from it in fact. Musicality can be just as thrilling in the technical skill of the musicians. The sound of the beat, the timbre, the “bounce” if you like. Hell, even some of the most recognisable songs in history had no lyrics. Classical music anybody? I suppose not being able to sing along to something could be a negative to some, but I don’t think an instrumental song is any lesser than one with lyrics. Would you like to hear a few? I think I can manage that. Let’s see…

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of skilled artists the world over!

Apocalyptica – Path

Clint Mansell – Lux Aeterna

Lindsey Stirling – Roundtable Rival

Isaac Albeniz – Asturias

Top Secret Drum Corps – Virginia Tattoo

And there we have it! I tried to get a bit of a variety in this one. I hope you all give each of these artists a try and show them some love. They all deserve the attention and on a personal note, that last one in particular is a real soft spot for me. Not sure why.

So, let’s get the social media mess out of the way. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter. It would mean a great deal to me and my internal monologue if you’d follow me over there as well. I share the clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time over there! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
