Hello again inmates!

Having a nice day? I certainly hope so. Me? Oh, I’ve been alright I suppose. Trudging along as I usually do, you know? I seem to be finding myself sleeping a whole lot more than usual. I daresay my new medication is to blame. I’m not exactly complaining, but it’s a little concerning. It’s early days though, It may well stabilise yet. It’s not even been a week. Think of me eh? Haha!

Anyway, enough of that nonsense! You’re here for some music, not for my whining! Who happened to see my clue today? Anybody? It was over on my social media. I hope somebody got it.

Well, todays musical theme is friendship! Oh yes! A very important facet of human life. Friendship and companionship. It’s something I’ve realised more-so in recent years. Even the most nihilistic and misanthropic of us needs others. Even if we deny it. We are social animals, so even the most miserable of us will suffer without any contact from other humans. This need for connection is a common trait in many artists music. It doesn’t have to romantic, they can be singing or writing about friends or even family. It could even be allies in a more distant sense. Many musical artists material can be dealing with joy of having friends around them, talking about the connections that friends have in a more metaphorical way or even missing a friend for whichever reason. It’s a rather broad subject once more. Let’s try and scratch the surface and get started eh?

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

Adam Lambert – Better Than I Know Myself

FRND – Friend

Killswitch Engage – Us Against The World

Randy Newman – You’ve Got A Friend In Me

Tenacious D – Dude (I Totally Miss You)

And there we have it! How was that one? Lots of bro-tastic and friendly songs there eh? I hope that you give each of these artists a good look, as they all deserve it. Go and check them all out. They each have lots of phenomenal songs in general. Listen to them with your friends eh?

So, let’s have some social media nonsense. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and a page over on Twitter. Please consider liking and following me over on those sites. If you really 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!

Good day fellow inmates!

I hope that you’re all having a lovely day. It is a rather crazy time right now isn’t it? Almost out of a horror movie! No slashers or creatures of the void in sight. This whole virus business seems to have brought out the very best in humanity, but also some of the worst. I suppose humanity and fear are the ultimate horror antagonists.

Things are running fairly smoothly here at the asylum. I’m actually finding myself getting out into the sun recently. Primarily to do some gardening, but i’ve found myself sat on one of our benches to write or read. Almost fell asleep out there yesterday! Haha! It’s a glorious time of year in that sense. Pity about all the misery going around really.

So, it’s time for another volume of the Harlequins writing music today. Keep the spirits up you know? We’re almost at number 30! Originally I didn’t think I would do more than 2 or 3 of these. They are rather entertaining to create though. Plus they’re something of a mental exercise trying to remember the full names of bands or songs from the past. The noggin doesn’t work as well as it used to! So, here goes…

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

Apashe – Lord & Master

Miracle Of Sound – The Path

The 1975 – A Change Of Heart

Killswitch Engage – The End Of Heartache

Within Temptation – Memories

So there we have it for another tome of the Harlequins writing music!

As always, I hope that you all give some of these artists a look. Bring some rhythm into your quarantine! One hopes that these artists (and ones from previous editions) help you all cope just a tiny bit.

If you’re totally insane and you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page! Thanks for everything!

So, until next time, have a very crazy day inmates!
