Hello there inmates!

So here we are once again! How are you doing this week? I hope you’re all keeping those creative minds ticking along nicely. The world needs artists now more than ever I fear. It’s been a fairly pleasant week here at the asylum with only a few hiccups, it’s beginning to feel a bit more like spring finally. I was getting rather sick of winter, I can tell you that! Here’s hoping the rest of the week will remain warmer. Ahh also, it’s mothers day this weekend I believe. Thanks for reminding me! Haha!

So, we need some music today don’t we? It’s the law here at the asylum after all. Not really, but it sounded true didn’t it? So, did anybody see the clue for todays musical theme earlier on today? Instagram was being a real pain in posting it for some reason. The other platforms had no issue. So that was weird. Did anybody guess it?

Well guess no more! The musical theme for this week is affection! I thought I’d so something of a nice positive theme this week. Affection can be a fairly broad topic. We can be affectionate of our friends, family and paramours. It’s not just about romance. It’s camaraderie and it’s partnership. It’s the glue that holds friends together. Platonic love, erotic love and well… family love? It’s a quintessential part of the human experience. As such, it’s no surprise that many artists have written on the subject. It doesn’t have to be purely the romantic genre, as I have outlined. It’s a subject that transcends genre in my opinion and so you can find it in any area of music. Want to hear my picks for this week? Go oooooon.

Join me as delve into the musical minds of tender artists the world over!

Stevie Wonder – Isn’t She Lovely

Demi Lovato – Gift Of A Friend

Thomas Rhett – Things Dads Do

The Rembrandts – I’ll be there for you

Cigarettes After Sex – Affection

And there we have it! Does anybody else have a nice warm and fuzzy feeling in their gut? There’s some nice songs there eh? Do they remind you of somebody that you’re affectionate of? I certainly hope so. I also hope that you check out all of these artists as they all deserve the attention.

Speaking of attention, mind bestowing me with yours? Or rather bestowing my social media pages with your attention? The asylum has a Facebook page, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter as well. It’d be really swell if you would give me a follow or like on those sites as well. Also, if you 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!
