Good day inmates!

At least it is for all of you. So the gloom has sort of lingered into this week for me I’m afraid my friends. But I’m fairly confident that there’s light beginning to shine through now. I don’t want to go on about it like I did a bit last week, but I thought it was worth acknowledging at least. So, what’s going on in the world right now? There’s that rather awful World Cup over in Qatar I suppose, I’m glad that I don’t really like sports because it doesn’t seem good how that whole event has come about. There does seem to be a significant amount of corruption involved I daresay. Money always seems to take precedence doesn’t it? A sad state of affairs.

You know what isn’t a sad state of affairs? The Harlequins writing music! Oh yes indeed. Did anybody see todays poem clue? It gave me shivers just to post it, to be honest.

I’ll just pull the plaster straight off. Todays musical theme is the ocean. Or water. For those of you who know me a bit better, it may not come as a surprise that I didn’t quite enjoy looking at pictures for todays theme clue. For those are newer to the asylum (Welcome, by the way), I’m maybe just a tiny bit afraid of being in water. I’m fine with baths and showers etc, but I don’t like being in deeper water, especially if it’s going on my face. It’s a tad embarrassing, but there you go. It’s one of the most important substances on Earth. It is life. It is mystery. It is sorrow. It can also be adventure. It is many things to many different people in all manner of worldly cultures. To some people it is a livelihood. To others it is an obstacle to be overcome. But for us today, it’s going to be inspiration for five wonderful musical artists. See? I get to the point eventually.

Please join me as we delve into the musical minds of aquatic artists the world over!

Nathan Evans – Wellerman

Peter Hollens – Daughter Of The Sea

Carrie Underwood – Something In The Water

Boy In Space – Drown

Pearl Jam – Oceans

And there we have it! If I didn’t fear the water, I’d envision myself floating on some rubber ring while I listen to these songs. Quite a variety there don’t you think? I hope that you enjoy the choices I’ve included this week and that you check out all of these artists in your own time as well. Consider that homework eh? Haha!

Speaking of homework, I may have double for you. You see, the asylum has a few social media sites that don’t get much love out there. I have a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and amazingly, still a page on Twitter as well. Please consider following and liking me over on those sites as well. Links are included here as ever. 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 and stay safe out there!

  1. Love your selections. Glad to see Carrie Underwood there. Awesome.
    Hope there is light coming in slowly there my friend. Life is a quagmire yet, we are still here.
