Hello there inmates!

How are you doing this week? Drinking enough water? That’s great my friend! It’s been a bit of a lower week on my end unfortunately. Feeling far more up and down than my usual. Definitely not been having so much of a good time. I’m not going to go in to the reasons for this or anything, I’d rather keep it private. All I will say is don’t be too surprised if my works in the next little while are likely to be on the darker or moodier side. Just for a change right? I suppose that’s not overly unusual for this here blog, but still! Keep that in mind.

So, it’s time for yet another edition of the Harlequins writing music. Music is always the way to get across the voices and feelings in ones heart no? On that point, did anybody see the clue for todays musical theme? I posted it on the usual social media channels. Did anybody see it? Well, allow me to unveil what it was alluding to!

The musical theme for this week, and this may not be surprising given how I began this post, is sorrow and loneliness. Yep, we’re being a bit ‘Emo’ today. Sadness is one of the primary emotions that govern the human experience. It can’t be avoided really. As such, there is no surprise that countless artists over the years have written about the feeling of sadness and all the related elements of that. Depression, loneliness and self-loathing. These things and more are common elements in almost every music artists repertoire. Even the most dancey, most upbeat artists will still include a song about being sad about something. It’s just a fact of human life. I’m preaching to the choir a bit here I realise so how about we move on to the actual music? That’s what you’re here for eh?

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

And there we have it. Please try to hold your tears. I hope these musical choices don’t ruin your day or evening. These artists all deserve your attention, despite the more glum showings I’ve featured here. They are all really good. Here’s hoping you enjoy these artists and don’t feel too sad in general. Have a better week than me eh?

Enough of that, here’s some social media stuff. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and an account over on Twitter as well. Please consider following me over on those pages, it really helps. 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!
