Hello again inmates!

How does the day find you? Hope you wonderful people have been having a nice week creating all manner of artsy machinations. Me? Oh you know, the usual. Summoning dark forces from ones mind and stitching them into words on a page is a full-time job you know! It’s been an alright week, I’ve been pretty happy with my own work. Always a nice feeling when you feel you got your thoughts into a poem just right, if you get me. Does anybody else also have that warm feeling of satisfaction when a poem goes just right? It’s great, no?

So, let’s move on. It’s the day of the week where I inflict the Harlequins writing music upon you all. I can only apologise, it can’t be subpar poems every day of the week you know! Haha! Did anybody see the clue for todays theme? It was a fairly obvious one again, I’ll be honest. I also believe I’ve had a similar theme in the past, but I think it deserves some more music anyways.

The theme for our musical entourage today is the night sky. Those two words really put an image in your head don’t they? A crisp and still night in an empty field, looking up at a sky lit up by a million little lighters. It’s an inspiring sight, even without the extra mysticism imparted by the moon. It’s no wonder that such sights would inspire artists of all kinds, including musicians. The night sky can be hypnotising, frightful, beautiful and invigorating. Just as much as a sparkling sunny day, in my opinion. This, I think, lends itself to all kinds of musical genres as different people will have all manner of different takes when it comes to a night sky. Hopefully this will lend itself to a varied musical showing today right Harley? Yes, I hope so!

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of nocturnal artists the world over!

Kavinsky – Nightcall

Don McLean – Vincent

Phaeleh – In The Twilight

Sirenia – Into The Night

Two Steps From Hell – Star Sky

And there we have it! That was reasonably varied right? I feel like that was one of my most divergent lists in quite a long time. I hope that there will be something that everyone can enjoy this week. Even if you’re unsure, I’d suggest giving each of these artists a look at the very least. They do deserve it. Show them some love eh? You never know, you may find your next favourite band!

Well, let’s get this bit over and done with eh? Social media nonsense! Well, the asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and even a Twitter page! Consider showing me some love over there won’t you? If you particularly enjoy 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 very crazy day inmates!
