Hello there inmates!

I hope that you’ve all had a wonderful week. You better be keeping safe out there, don’t make me get the jester stick! I’m kidding of course but I don’t want anybody to be having any trouble or illness! It’s been an comfortable week here at the asylum, though a tad uneventful. I’ve realised I am in serious need of some storage folders or something for my papers as they have outgrown the drawers they inhabited up to this point. Definitely something I’ll be looking into in the coming week. With the exception of one poem, I’ve actually felt less confident about the poems I’ve put out this week. I’m not sure if that’s just my usual self-deprecation or if they have been of lesser quality.

So, enough with the moaning, how about some music? It’s the Harlequins writing music today dont you know! I’ve decided to do something slightly different this week. I have done this same thing in the past, but I think that it’s been a while. I’m going to share some of my favourite covers this time! I think an artist can reshape an already great tune and make something new and beautiful. It may even shine a different kind of light upon the song and bring forth new resonance from it. Let’s see how these particular covers perform for you wonderful people.

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

We Came As Romans – Glad You Came (The Wanted cover)

And there we have it for another edition of the Harlequins writing music!

Some interesting covers there no! I was actually more hard-pressed to pick covers than I was to pick artists for my “traditional” writing music posts! I hope that you all enjoy my picks and you also check out these artists. That includes their own works as well! I honestly don’t think you’ll be disappointed with any of them!

So, how about some social media stuff eh? The asylum has a page on Facebook, I have a account over on Instagram and a page over on Twitter. It’d mean a lot to me if any of you cool cats would like/follow me over there, it really helps a great deal! Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over at the Ko-fi page! Cheers my friends!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

As always, I hope you’re all having a suitably mad (and productive) day! Things have been rather busy here at the asylum as well. Lots of writing and lots of giggling!I’m still in the process of sorting out my writing desk and general geek area. It’s coming along swimmingly, but my laziness gets the better of me on some days! The voices often tell me I need to get off of my ass, but what do they know?!

Anyways, back to the purpose of this post. Wonderful musical offerings that help me concentrate on my scribblings. We all know how soothing or energising music can be. I try to keep it as varied as I can, since the notes and tunes coalesce and produce thoughts of true creativity. That was rather profound wasn’t it?

So, without delaying any longer, join me as we delve into the musical minds of stunning artists the world over!

So there we have it for another volume of the Harlequins writing music! What a good time I have making these posts! As always, I hope that you give all of these artists a look. They most certainly all deserve it! I Feel I should also take this chance to suggest you look at my older writing music posts as well, if you enjoy this one of course! There’s quite a menagerie of musical marvels in those. Thank you for everything my fellow inmates!

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