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!

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

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

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.

Once again, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page! Thanks for all the support!

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

Good day inmates!

I hope you’re all having a good day. Mine has been an interesting one too. I overslept once again and forgot my medication. It’s been something of a trend this week unfortunately. But on the plus side, I’ve gotten a few poems out that i’m really happy with. In particular my most recent one “The Enclave” as it’s quite dear to my heart. This place I’m allowed to live in is full of the nicest and quirkiest characters I’ve ever known. The poem was a sort of “THANK YOU!!” to them.

So here we are with another edition of the Harlequins writing music. I’ve decided to do something slightly different for this particular volume. Something very strange you could say. I’ve decided to highlight a specific artist whom I admire and listen to almost daily. Drumroll please…

It is none other than Mr Strange! This glamourous artist has inspired me countless times. Their views on society and individuality are right up my alley. I’ve followed them since the days they were known as the Shanklin Freak Show! Their bizarre look and general oddity is a constant source of delight for me. I’ll be sharing five of their songs which I consider the best, though I’d suggest listening to everything they’ve produced!

So, join me as delve into the deviant minds of Mr Strange!

Mr Strange – Lizard Man

Mr Strange – Do It Like Pete Burns

The Shanklin Freak Show – The Last Show On Earth

Mr Strange – Exile

Mr Strange – Contact

So there we have it for yet another volume of the Harlequins writing music! As anyone who has read one of these posts before should know, I always include a link to an artists website or general webpage. This one shall be no different. You can find Mr Strange at https://www.facebook.com/Official.Mr.Strange/. I certainly hope you all give them a listen! They’re truly something else!

As for me, I shall bid you adieu and I have a very crazy day inmates!

Good day inmates!

I hope you’re all having an enormously crazy day! It’s time for another chapter of the Harlequins writing music. I can’t believe I’ve actually created 10 of these posts. I was half expecting somebody to have told me to shut up about my music taste after the first chapter! I’ve been quite busy on getting some new poems and other miscellaneous writings complete this week. This music has helped enormously! I can’t really imagine writing in silence anymore.

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

Mr. Strange – Twisted Family

Skillet – Monster

The Tenth Stage – Cinderella’s Revenge

Knife Party – Bonfire

Apocalyptica – Fade to Black

And there we have it for another edition of the Harlequins writing music! I don’t think I’d be anywhere near as willing to write as much as I do without my musical backdrop. I gives me ideas, it keeps me calm and it is quite simply something I enjoy. It is almost like an unseen assistant. As always, check out all of these bands. I try to keep these lists reasonably varied so hopefully there will be something you’ll enjoy regardless what you’re musical creed is. Thank you for reading my friends!

Have a very crazy day inmates!
