Hello there inmates!

Brrr! It’s mighty chilly here on the island this week you know! No snow as of yet thankfully, but plenty of frost and ice. It’s made using the bike something of an occupational hazard so I’ve been trying to go out as little as possible. How is it where you guys are? Maybe some of you are in more tropical climes? I hope you’re all managing to keep warm wheresoever you are. Unless you’re one of those mental cases that enjoy being out in the cold, in which case I hope you enjoy that instead.

So, there was a slight error for the clue for todays musical theme. It appears that the clue was only posted on Facebook, and missed Instagram and Twitter. So it may be a bit redundant of me to to ask if anybody saw the clue as the “reach” was even lower than usual. Bit of a hiccup that I’m going to going to hopefully sort out for my next poem clue.

I might as well just get to it eh? We want music! Well, today you have it! Todays writing music theme is the pub. Yep, today we are listening to music that encapsulates the feeling and atmosphere of the quintessential alehouse. The revelry, the cheers, the jeers. The chatter of aged men and the log fire surging in the corner. Despite not being a house, it always feels rather homely to me. You obviously do get those almost clinical chain bar/restaurants which have some convenience, but they simply don’t compare to a good old fashioned British pub. Sometimes they can be a tad rough, but that’s just part of the charm. Me and my brother practically grew up in a pub (not drinking obviously) and I’ve always enjoyed the feeling of standing on those beer-stained wood floors. It’s hard to actually describe the music that captures the feel of a pub, and yet I reckon that you can almost ‘picture’ it in your head already. Let’s see if I can match that image in your minds eh? Let’s have some drunken music!

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

Chas and Dave – The Sideboard Song

Dropkick Murphys – Rose Tattoo

Chumbawamba – Tubthumper

Starship – We Built This City

Midland – Drinkin’ Problem

And there we have it for another week! I don’t know about you but I fancy a pint now. Anybody able to send me a 4-pack of lager? That’d be wonderful. I’m joking of course! One shouldn’t really encourage overindulgence! Haha! I hope that you all enjoy the musical choices for this week and check these artists out if you haven’t already. They always deserve the attention, the music industry is vicious.

You know what else is vicious? Trying to get people to check out your social media pages. I know I say this every week on these posts but it would mean a great deal to me if you all considered following or liking me on my social media as well as here on WordPress. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and for now at least, a page on Twitter as well. Also, 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!
