Good day inmates!

How are you all doing? Been having an eventful week? That’s just grand! I’ve gotten round to typing up this post a little late in the day this time as I’ve been a tad busy. Sorry about that! I’m still rather amazed I’ve managed to post every day since February last year. It’s one of the few things I’m really proud of. Anybody have any particular writing achievements that they are proud of? I’d love to hear about it!

So, another edition of the Harlequins writing music eh? I imagine that’s what you’re here for. That’s great to hear! Well, did anybody happen to see the clue I posted on social media earlier on today? It was a slightly more obvious one that previous iterations I felt. Well, here goes! The theme for our writing music choices today is drinking! Oh yes indeed! Music and alcohol just go hand in hand don’t they? From pub songs to tunes about the social aspects of drinking to more negative songs about the depressive effects of booze.

Drinking has a culture all of its own. Particularly over here in the UK, it’s almost used as the sole basis of socialising. Everyone tends to be giddy and free-speaking when they’ve got a pint in their hand. I no longer partake myself, as it happens. Naturally, it has inspired many artists to write about their explorations through drunkenness or certain events/conquests that occurred during a binge. It could be as simple as songs designed to played in a pub or club. It could be a song about the negative side of alcohol; the violence or sickness. I’ve picked five songs that I feel represent our theme today in a number of different ways. Anybody want to get down to some real “party” tunes eh?

Once again, join me as we delve into the musical minds of drinking artists the world over!

The Rumjacks – An Irish Pub Song

Chumbawamba – Tubthumping

Disturbed – A Reason To Fight

Rihanna – Cheers (I’ll Drink To That)

Jackson Taylor & The Sinners – Whiskey Drinking Song

And there we have it! Cheers!

How was that eh? Do you think I’ve captured the essence of drinking with these choices? As always, I could have chosen so many others as well. Five is just a tad too limiting isn’t it? Well for now, it’s the most I think I could do, otherwise I’d be here all day doing this and that is a bit too much don’t you reckon? I hope you enjoyed these choices and check out these artists, they always deserve the attention. Raise a glass to them eh?

So, how about some social media spiel? The asylum has a presence on Facebook, an account over on Instagram and an account on Twitter too! Also, if you like 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 crazy day inmates!

Hello once more inmates!

I hope that you’re having a wonderfully manic day today! It’s been a rather nice day for me, though I am in a wee bit of discomfort today. I may or may not have gone for a walk yesterday for a bit too long and with suntan lotion. I’m quite badly burned up one side. Uncomfortable but amusing in it’s own way. Haha! That’s a lesson learned, I can promise you that!

It’s been business as usual here at the asylum really this week. I’ve been uncharacteristically pleased with my recent work. I’m my own worst critic at the best of times, but still. I’m hoping that you are all enjoying my recent stuff and I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to the newest inmates that have followed the blog recently. I don’t feel I can ever thank all of you enough!

So it is time for the next edition of the Harlequins writing music! It’s time to share five musical artists that the Harlequin enjoys listening to while writing. It could be orchestral, it could be metal. It could even be Hip-hop! You never know! I try to vary it as much as humanly (or inhumanly) possible!

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

Seether – Remedy

Bricks + Mortar – Keep This Place Beautiful

The Rumjacks – An Irish Pub Song

Live in Athens

WinWel – You Make My Day (Feat. Lua Lua)

Nightwish – Bye Bye Beautiful

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

Here’s hoping that you give at least a couple of these artists a try! It’s a decent selection is it not? The voices say I may be a tad biased in saying that, but there you go! Haha! I’m torn between doing another writing music post next week or something a little different. We’ll see eh?

As always, if you like what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-Fi page! Thank you so much!

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