Hello there inmates!

Things are finally looking up on the illness front! I’m feeling a whole lot better now, though I do still seem to have a slight cough. A vast improvement though, that’s for sure. Thank you for all of your comments wishing me well, that meant a lot to me. As I mentioned last week though, it hasn’t slowed me down on the artistic side too much. At least I hope my work hasn’t suffered. Let me know eh? Haha!

So, on to the main event. Or whatever people say these days. The Harlequins writing music is here once again to infest your ears with lovely little musical maggots. That sounded so much nicer in my head. Anyway, did anybody see todays music theme clue. It was a pretty evident one to be honest. Even more than usual.

Todays musical theme is clubbing! Oh yes. Going out on the town and being delightfully social. Not an area of expertise for me by a long shot, but I do have a soft spot for music that tends to go hand-in-hand with clubs. Nice thumping electronic or trance. Throw some pop in there, maybe some industrial if the setting is right, That tends to be the stereotypical sphere of clubs, but I think it also could include some of those more “cheesy” songs that everyone knows. Think the YMCA for example. Incidentally not on todays list, but it gives you the idea of what I mean. The point though, is the music of clubs is intended to make people dance and as such, I’m going to take it very personally if nobody dances to todays list. I’m kidding. Let’s get on it!

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

Cascada – Everytime We Touch

Rihanna – Don’t Stop The Music

Pendulum – Witchcraft

Deadmau5 – Monophobia

Neil Diamond – Sweet Caroline

And there we have it for another edition of the Harlequins writing music. Yes, that last one was one of those “cheesy” songs that get put on once everyone at the club is already a bit wavy. Yes, I’ve witnessed it. I hope you check out all of these artists as they all deserve the attention. I feel like the artists I’ve shared this time are more on the well-known side of the spectrum, but still. Show them some love eh?

So, speaking about showing love. Show me some over on the social media sites, everything helps! The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and last but not least a page on Twitter. Links provided for your convenience of course. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Cheers for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

It’s summer time finally! The sun is beaming down (occasionally), the sky is ever-blue and the island I live on is full of visitors. Oh yes, summer! The time of year for music festivals, trips to the beach, road trips along sweltering roads and wonderful parties at sunset. The time of stargazing and sunbathing. It’s my favorite time of year, believe it or not. I wanted to post another chapter of the Harlequins writing music, but I thought it would be fun to do it a bit differently this time. We’re here to celebrate the summer after all!

So yes! This is the “Summer Special” of the Harlequins writing music! Let’s all rejoice and party and all that! I’m going to post some summery songs that I may write with sometimes. I find that my productivity goes up noticeably during hot weather, it just makes me feel more energetic and creative. Since this is a special, I’m not too bothered about posting songs by artists that I have posted in the previous chapters of writing music. Some bands have dark depressing tunes, while still having energetic ‘party-esque’ summer numbers. These songs will represent the innate nature of summer. Some will be high tempo beach party songs, some may be spirited and optimistic holiday anthems, while others may be slower watching-over-a-sunset tunes. Let’s see what we get eh?

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of aestival artists the world over!

The Offspring – Want You Bad

deadmau5 ft. Gerard Way – Professional Griefers

Blink 182 – What’s My Age Again?

MiTiS – Life Of Sin (pt. 3)

Goldfinger – Superman

Koda – Shattered

So there we go! That’s it for our celebration of the summer months. I hope you’ve enjoyed this special edition of the Harlequins writing music! I feel that each of these songs is quite summery, you can’t really have summer music without at least one Blink 182 or Offspring song eh? Give each of these bands a try if you haven’t already, you shan’t be disappointed! Anyway, I hope each and everyone one of you out there is having a wonderful summer! I intend to! Best keep those tans topped up right?!

Until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

Hope you’re all having a truly crazy day! I’m getting back into the swing of blogging it seems. I got more posted since i got back then i expected to, to be honest. For now though, it’s time for another edition of the Harlequins writing music. I astounded myself when i actually realized how many of these I’ve done already, sure hope you guys aren’t getting bored by them. That would quite simply not do! Got some more great bands for you today, quite a variety once again. We’ve got a little bit of metal, a little bit of electronic, a little bit of steampunk and something else entirely unusual. In my opinion at least!

Now, let us delve into the musical minds of astounding artists the world over!


deadmau5 feat. Rob Swire – Ghosts N Stuff

Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood

Professor Elemental – I’m British

Tarja Turunen – Until My Last Breath

Seasick Steve – Green and Yeller


Well, there you go for another edition of the Harlequins writing music! Be sure to check out all of these bands, they’re great! I hope you’ve enjoyed the 9th edition. I intend to keep going, so check back in the future for number 10! Let me know what you thought of these bands, i know they’re not quite as obscure as previous editions, but hey ho!

Have a very crazy day my good inmates!
