Hello there inmates!

How are you all doing this week? Nursing a hangover or getting over those food comas? I hope that you all had a great christmas day. I know I did! I ate far too much and drank a little more than is medically advised. Did you guys get everything you wanted? Did you spend time with your loved ones? I’m really happy to hear it! We’re coming up to the new year as well, so that’ll be fun I suppose. Not entirely over the moon about what the new year might bring of course, but who knows!

So, it’s time for that weekly mess of musical splendour. The Harlequins writing music! As I always ask about this time, did anybody see the clue to todays musical theme? I thought it was a pretty good one, if I do say so myself.

So todays musical theme is the noughties! Ahh yes, the first decade of this millennium. I was teenager during this decade, so I remember bits of it quite vividly. Not necessarily in a positive light, but that’s teenage life. Believe it or not, I wasn’t actually a big music fan at the time. I had favourites of course, but I was not known to listen to it extensively. There were some big bands during these years, I actually find it hard to pinpoint what was special musically about the noughties specifically. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake I suppose. Oh yes, and Nickelback. It was the type of music that, much like the nineties, seems quite timeless in the public consciousness. Almost everyone has heard the songs and can even sing along in a fashion. Speaking of singing along, let me know if you do with todays musical offerings eh? Let’s get on with it!

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

Evanescence – Bring Me To Life

Outkast – Hey Ya!

And there we have it! Not a Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake in sight! There are some mainstream ones in there, but I wanted to avoid those particular artists as I’m not a fan at all. I hope that you found something that you wanted to sing along with. That’s always fun to do when creating art! I hope you check all of these out anyways!

So, speaking of checking out, why not check out my social media sites? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and even a Twitter page! Also, 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!
