Good day inmates!

Apologies for the slightly later posting of this edition. I’ve had a reasonably full day attempting to make my room here at the asylum look presentable. How are you all doing? Enjoying the later days of this most chilly of months? I’ll be glad when spring comes and the heat starts to rise I must admit.

I don’t know about you, but I fancy some music. Did anybody see the clue from earlier? I thought it was rather glamourous, you know? Makes me want to grow a glam-rock hairdo, you get me?

So, if my clumsy excuses for secrecy have no doubt revealed, todays musical theme is glam! Whether that be glam-rock, glam-pop or otherwise. I’m quite a fan of dressing up, as any follower of the asylum may be able to deduce. I like facepaint and fancy outfits. I like wacky hair and theatricality. Glam is pretty much all of those things, with rather funky musical beats to go along with it. I find it rather hard to describe when I actually think about it. It’s a pretty varied genre in all honesty, from the earliest opuses of David Bowie and Elton John to more “stereotypical” glam-hair bands like Guns N’ Roses or Kiss. They all have this almost eccentric quality to them, like if the mad hatter had a band. They’re larger than life, flamboyant and are always easy to sing and bop along to. Five of them are also on this page you know. Haha!

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

David Bowie – Life On Mars?

The Sweet – Wig Wam Bam

Abba – Waterloo

Adam Lambert – Down The Rabbit Hole

Alice Cooper – School’s Out

And there we have it for another edition of the Harlequins writing music! I could have included so many artists in this one really, as Glam has such a broad scope. I could have included Elton John, Slade, T-Rex, among others. But alas, I have this self-imposed rule to include only five, so there’s your lot! Haha! As always, I encourage you all to give these artists a look, they certainly deserve the attention in my eyes.

So, talking about attention and such, how about some social media stuff? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. I post clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time, as well as various other mad hot garbage. Check it out sometime, it would mean a lot! Also, if you really enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well. Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

    Oh man the memories in these clips! Lol.

    Actually I was a very sedate little prude. But loved listening to ABBA especially. My husband said his high school class he graduated with actually had School’s Out as their graduation song, lol.
    Loved David Bowie’s voice, even tho I found his songs a bit odd.

    Yes, Sir Elton…you could probably dedicate an entire entry just to him, lol.
