Hello there inmates!

Having a pleasant week? I certainly hope so! It’s been rather nice over here at the asylum too. The weather took a rather grey turn at one point, but returned to the warm weather we expect at this time. At least the grass had some refreshment eh? I’m actually typing this up while outside right now. There’s a decent breeze so I shan’t be burning. No complaints here, that’s for sure.

So, I know why you’re here. You got lost on the way to a better blog. No- wait! That’s not right. Oh yes, you’re here for the Harlequins writing music! At least I hope so or you’re likely to be disappointed. Well, I have some music for you, oh yes I do! Did anybody see the theme I shared a clue for earlier on? I think it was a pretty obvious one again honestly. The theme for todays music is the summer! Seems obvious really, but it hit me like a bolt out of the blue this morning. Many people love the summer. They love the vibes of joy, the crowds of people and the general heat. I’m personally a fan of the hot weather. Everyone associates different music with the summer. It may bring back specific memories, or has a particular ‘dancey’ and tropical sound, or instead it may simply be the time of year that someone heard a particular song or artist.

I’m curious about the kinds of music that you guys out there like to listen to in the summer or songs that remind you of the summer days. Let me know in the comments if you are so inclined. I’m going to share some songs now and nobody can stop me! Just kidding, but I am going to share some music…

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

Cider Sky – Northern Lights

Sum 41 – Fatlip

Bowling For Soup – 1985

Shaft – Mucho Mambo (Sway)

O-Zone – Dragostea Din Tei

And there we have it!

How was that eh? I could have included sooooo many other artists in this weeks edition. I was thinking I may even do a second part of this next week. Summer ain’t over for a while yet! We’ll see! I hope you check out all of these artists and give them some love! I know they’re not unknown artists or anything, but they still deserve the love right?

Let’s have some silly social media nonsense eh? The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and a page over on Twitter. It’d be grand if any of you could go over and like or follow me over there too! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Thanks for everything!

Until next week, remember that suntan lotion and have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

I hope that you’re all having a wonderful day and week! Things are going ultra well at the asylum. I’ve honestly got nothing to complain about right now. I can’t even think of anything. This is something that I’m not used to, to be honest. I hope that you’re all getting an equally good time in your lives too. It’s important to smile in these dark times.

It’s finally time! We’ve made it to part 50 of the Harlequins writing music! I never believed that I’d make this many of these. Last week, I said that I’d do something special for this edition, but to be honest I couldn’t really think of anything. So, I thought I’d just write a little bit about myself, as dull as that may be. I will also invite any of you inmates reading to ask me anything you’d like to know about me in the comments. Sounds fun, no?

So, for anyone who is a more recent inmate. The Oldschool Harlequins real name is Jack. I’m a twenty-something oddling from the United Kingdom. I’m rather big on video games (such as Final Fantasy, Dead By Daylight, Nioh, Starcraft, among others) and music, as I tend to display here in these writing music posts. My favourite bands are probably Ghost and Poets of the Fall. I first got into writing when I was in my early school years. Starting with some very simple poems about various inane subjects. I was a big fan of fantasy stories like Tolkiens works or the Shannara series. However, I’m also a big fan of horror. Mostly because of Bram Stoker. Wink wink!

I’m a big fan of Lovecrafts work, as well Edgar Allen Poe and Tolkien. I don’t get to read as much as I’d like these days, but I’m known to have a try when I get the opportunity. I also like hiking, motorcycling and I’d be lying if I didn’t like a good beer every now and then too.

So, that’s all about that for now. I’d be very interested to see some of your questions. So, how about some music now eh? Let’s get right to it!

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

Sum 41 – Fatlip

Richard Cheese – Down With The Sickness (Disturbed Cover)

Ladytron – Destroy Everything You Touch

A Day To Remember – All I Want

Alan Walker – Alone

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

Here’s hoping that you all give these artists a gander as usual. Spreading music is another passion of mine, it has to be said. I’ve rambled more than enough in this post already I fear.

I’ve got to include this shilling bit though of course! The asylum virus is alive on social media. I have a Facebook page, a Twitter account and an Instagram page. Also, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page. Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day my dear inmates!
