what’s in my earholes 18th October

It’s Friday!!!!! And we all know what Friday means…

Today it’s the turn of a band that I adore. I’ve seen some amazing gigs – Radiohead (twice), Oasis (at a local pub on the day their first single came out) REM, Blur, Pulp to name a few – but The Hoosiers came to a tiny venue in my town and blew the roof off that place. From that moment on I was in love with them! They even came down to the merch stand after the show and signed stuff for people, and I got a kiss from a lovely sweaty Irwin… sigh. I love their videos too – there’s so much humour in them that sums up their spirit perfectly….

What’s in my earholes, 4th Oct 2013

YAY! It’s Friday and it’s time for What’s in my earholes!  I have a warning today – if you don’t like loud guitars you’d better turn off right now, because today I’m posting my favourite Supergrass song.  Oh my, I had such an enormous crush on the singer of this band. I may have played a particular Top of the Pops performance quite a lot of times, just for the look he gave the camera at the end of it. What’s that I hear you say… you can’t believe that I’m the sort of girl to develop crushes on famous people? I know, weird, huh?

So, enjoy… ya know, if you like that sort of thing… If not, come back next week and who knows, we could have some random seventies disco track playing!

What’s in my earholes – Friday 13th September 2013

Yay, it’s back!  With the school holidays and book launches, What’s in my Earholes has been sadly neglected, but fear not, this Friday is all about sharing what the last song that played on my ipod coming home tonight was. When I hear this song by Fall Out Boy, I always think of this Doctor Who montage, It’s old, but I love the clips, even the really dodgy ones with terrible monsters.  Enjoy!

And just for the record, I totally volunteer as stunt double for all the David Tennant hugging at the end…

It’s Friday! Let us all worship at the altar of the weekend! Today’s Friday music post is a bit different.  This is not the song that was playing on my ipod when I got home from work today, but it is daughter number one’s birthday, so this song is for her. Not the best quality video, but the best I could find on youtube for such an old song. You gotta love the 80’s!

How quickly Friday comes around and time to find out what was playing on my ipod as I walked up the driveway this evening. I’m afraid I couldn’t find a video as such for this song, only a live version, but the point of this song is to listen to the absolutely beautiful lyrics. Pure poetry. Take it away, Ben, you little genius, you…

A bit late I know. Who knew that I’d totally forget I’d arranged for my cousin to visit? The poor guy turned up especially to pick up a copy of Runners for his girlfriend and I’m slobbing out on the sofa in my pyjamas at 6.30! Ah well, here it is, the last song that was on the ipod when I got in from work tonight. Rupert Grint – you just got to love him, even as a crazy stalker.

Already I’ve fallen off the wagon!  I was supposed to share something from my ipod with you, but when I got home today my daughter showed me this video she’d found on Youtube and it fair made my poor little geek heart bleed rainbows.. or something.  So I just had to share it.  It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, granted, but I love it.

You can check out the original version of the song by Walk the Moon here too, equally as cool!

Enjoy and happy Friday!
