Good day inmates!

How are you all doing? Been having an eventful week? That’s just grand! I’ve gotten round to typing up this post a little late in the day this time as I’ve been a tad busy. Sorry about that! I’m still rather amazed I’ve managed to post every day since February last year. It’s one of the few things I’m really proud of. Anybody have any particular writing achievements that they are proud of? I’d love to hear about it!

So, another edition of the Harlequins writing music eh? I imagine that’s what you’re here for. That’s great to hear! Well, did anybody happen to see the clue I posted on social media earlier on today? It was a slightly more obvious one that previous iterations I felt. Well, here goes! The theme for our writing music choices today is drinking! Oh yes indeed! Music and alcohol just go hand in hand don’t they? From pub songs to tunes about the social aspects of drinking to more negative songs about the depressive effects of booze.

Drinking has a culture all of its own. Particularly over here in the UK, it’s almost used as the sole basis of socialising. Everyone tends to be giddy and free-speaking when they’ve got a pint in their hand. I no longer partake myself, as it happens. Naturally, it has inspired many artists to write about their explorations through drunkenness or certain events/conquests that occurred during a binge. It could be as simple as songs designed to played in a pub or club. It could be a song about the negative side of alcohol; the violence or sickness. I’ve picked five songs that I feel represent our theme today in a number of different ways. Anybody want to get down to some real “party” tunes eh?

Once again, join me as we delve into the musical minds of drinking artists the world over!

And there we have it! Cheers!

How was that eh? Do you think I’ve captured the essence of drinking with these choices? As always, I could have chosen so many others as well. Five is just a tad too limiting isn’t it? Well for now, it’s the most I think I could do, otherwise I’d be here all day doing this and that is a bit too much don’t you reckon? I hope you enjoyed these choices and check out these artists, they always deserve the attention. Raise a glass to them eh?

So, how about some social media spiel? The asylum has a presence on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and an account on Twitter too! Also, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-fi page! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

One hopes you’re all having a great day today! There isn’t very much to report of the asylum front. Things are running smoothly, at a fair rate of knots. I’ve actually been really quite happy with my last few poems, which is a rarity for me I can tell you for nothing. I’ve been sleeping a fair bit better the last week or so though, so that has definitely been a significant morale boost as well. Routine. Routine. Routine.

And as always, i’ve been humbled and charmed by the incomparable kindness of my fellow inmates! Your comments really do bring a smile to this old painted face. It has caused quite a contented chuckle from the other voices as well. We love you guys!

So, it’s time for part 33 of the Harlequins writing music! I have decided to do something a tiny bit different today. I’m still going to include five different musical artists, but this time all of the songs I pick will be covers. I find a good cover gives a new meaning and life to even an archaic song. The context could even change, a twist on the original. They most certainly have merit in my eyes. That is not to say that songs are bad because they’re older though of course! You can always have both! Here’s a few of my favourites!

I hope that you enjoy all of these covers today my fellow inmates! I just fancied doing something a tad different for this weeks writing music post. As always, I hope you give each of these artists a try, whether it be their covers or original songs.

Until next time, I shall bid you a good day, doff my hat to you and wish you a very crazy day inmates!
